Since we’re well into autumn some of you may be considering ways to create more of a cosy ambience for the cooler months. Aside from changing your décor or lighting you may want to take this opportunity of upgrading your cafe furniture. While there are many different materials for cafe furniture including metal, rattan, polypropylene, and aluminium, timber is still one of the most popular choices, after all there’s nothing compares to the warm, rich feel of timber.
If your cafe has an organic theme then choosing timber for your furniture makes total sense and will make your establishment feel warm and welcoming. Depending on the colour of the timber, wood furniture fits into practically any establishment with light coloured wood such as ash being suited to modern minimist styles and darker woods like oak and walnut fitting well into more traditional settings.
That said, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of timber furniture:
Strong and durable
Timber is robust and durable so it makes a perfect choice for the busiest of cafes or bars. The durability factor makes it a good investment for the long term and maintenance is relatively easy too, since most timber furniture can be wiped clean with a damp cloth and buffed dry with a dry cloth. If you’ve got an industrial theme, then why not consider furniture options which use a marriage of metal and wood – for a look that is bang on trend.
We’re doing all we can to stock timber furniture that has been sourced responsibly with newly planted forests taking the place of trees that have been harvested. (Look for the green FSC sign next to these products). The carbon footprint associated with timber is also considerably lower than with other materials, so there’s never been a better reason to consider timber.
Timber comes in a huge range of shades and grains, with the beauty being that no-one piece is ever exactly the same as another. With so many styles of timber furniture and a great choice of stains or paint finishes, it’s easy to find something to match your décor.
We touched upon this at the beginning of this blog post and it’s true to say that timber has to be the most versatile type of furniture capable of fitting into any type of setting. Although timber is widely used for indoor furniture it looks just as lovely outside and creates a totally natural vibe. Wood is generally treated with oil to preserve its natural moisture and prevent it from drying out or cracking, so it can even be used in our harsh Australian climate. Teak is probably one of the most common woods used outdoors and can be found in numerous styles from picnic style table and chairs to bistro table and chairs.
