The essence of furniture
Quality furniture requires precious woods, carefully chosen by experts who know both the kinds of wood and the work they will undergo. Arcari arredamenti only accepts timber supplies from controlled reforestation, under its ethical commitment and desire to keep in mind the environmental impact of its activities.
For the realisation of its furniture doors, the wood Arcari arredamenti chooses is walnut: among many other reasons, for its characteristic of keeping insects away (especially moths, but also mosquitoes and flies).
Walnut wood, also known as European walnut or white walnut, is one of the finest woods available in the world and is widespread in Europe. The walnut trees can reach even thirty meters in height, and this allows to obtain even very long wooden planks, whose color ranges from different shades of brown, from brown-gray to almost black shades depending on the area of the original tree. The vein, semi-flamed or striped, can be combined according to an ancient execution called "spine fish".
It is not at the end of the processing of furniture, however, that one will better appreciate its fine shades of brown. It's overtime, when those who bought a piece of furniture in walnut will have the opportunity to see them at their best.
Precious woods are employed for the details of our bathroom collections: oak wood, for example, with cut and planed axes that have been pre-treated with acids that create unique and unrepeatable surface effects for each piece.
For projects of a more contemporary style, wood from old partitions is also used, and will be worked in such a way as to enhance its history, a tale that will become part of the new furniture and tell about itself in this 'new life'.
