Whether due to concerns about the rising cost of natural wood, the availability of certain species, or maintenance, it’s no surprise that the market for imitation wood products has grown in recent decades. There are a variety of synthetic or man-made products now available aimed at delivering a “realistic” wood look – from wood-plastic composites to laminates, vinyl and aluminum products – with varying degrees of success. However, architects and designers often overlook an all-natural, sustainable alternative to solid wood that retains the true character of real wood, while being resource-efficient and cost-effective: natural wood veneer.
Natural, unique and beautiful: why natural wood veneer is still the first product for decorative walls, ceilings, joinery and furniture dispels some common myths and misconceptions about natural wood veneer and examines why it should be considered the best option for decorative walls, ceilings, furniture and millwork. We set the record straight and explain what wood veneers are, how they are made and whether they should be considered a ‘natural’ material. We also look at the architectural benefits of wood veneer, focusing on the qualities it shares with real wood: natural, unique and beautiful.
