Everyone is aware that UVA and UVB rays from the sun can cause skin aging and skin cancer. Less commonly known is that UVA and UVB light can damage your furniture. Without the proper care, sunlight will diminish the aesthetic beauty and the functional durability of the furniture´s wood and upholstery.
Depending on the type of wood, UV exposure will lighten or darken the wood, giving your furniture a prematurely aged look. UV light will also cause shrinkage of the wood, causing it to split or crack. Leather and fabric upholstery are also very sensitive to UV light, and the color and durability of both are greatly affected by UV rays.
UV light easily filters through your windows, but its effects can be minimized by using proper window coverings. UV blocking film can be applied to your windows, reducing some or all of the amount of damaging light that reaches your furniture. Proper window coverings, such as blinds, shades, or draperies, can also help.
We handcraft our luxury furniture with solid, organic, timber wood. The wood goes through a long process of preparation before becoming furniture. Your furniture comes with a guarantee for life, except when exposed and damaged by UVA or UVB light.
Our furniture is built solid, and with the proper care and minimum UV exposure, you will enjoy your furniture for generations to come. Thank you.
