July 30, 2019 The softest wood in the world
The term softwood basically denotes a classification of certain types of wood into a botanical category. Originally, the name comes from customs. By softwoods, we are referring to wood species with a density below 0.55 g / cm³. This applies, for example, to native conifers, such as spruce and pine, as well as deciduous trees, such as linden and poplar. The softest wood in the world, however, only grows in the tropics.
Balsa wood: the lightweight among the wood species
The balsa tree is a tropical plant which is grown across all continents. The trees are very fast-growing and reach a height of 30 to 45 meters. The stem has a smooth bark which is usually light-gray and may have white marbling. With a density of 0.1 to 0.2 g / cm³, balsa is the softest wood in the world. PS rigid foam - which, among other things, is used as foam plastic polystyrene - has a similarly low density. The density of balsa wood varies depending on the cut. Thin branches are the softest, whiRead more
July 30, 2019 Dining room - stylishly decorated with teak furniture
The dining room is more than just a place where family members eat together. The boundaries between the living area and the dining area are becoming increasingly blurred. The dining area is becoming the centre of family life and plays a central role in social gatherings. Hence, the dining room should be furnished accordingly.
Dining room: a combination of cosiness and functionality
The design of the dining room as a central meeting place in the home is of particular importance. The family members exchange ideas, play evening games, and have meals taken together in this space; school children also do their homework here. The art of decorating this space lies in finding a balance between comfort and functionality. If there is enough space, the dining table can be a bit bigger. If the table is too small, it seems out of place and permanently disturbs the overall impression. In larger rooms, bold colours are also in high demand. They can be stronger than in dining roomsRead more

July 30, 2019 Gluing teak
Thanks to its extremely high density, teak is a remarkably durable wood. Pieces of furniture made from this tropical hardwood are some of the most exclusive indoor and outdoor home furniture items. It’s even more of a shame if these pieces of furniture are damaged due to carelessness or an excessively strong mechanical load. Teak gluing is often the last resort for saving valuable furnishings.
Teak gluing: problems with gluing teak furniture
In contrast to domestic woods, teak gluing is more problematic. Classic wood glue is water-based. If two wood surfaces are joined together, the adhesive hardens by evaporation of the liquid components and both surfaces form a connection. The reason for the difficulty in gluing teak wood lies in the special properties of this tropical wood species. Teak has a high content of natural oils. These prevent the evaporation of water, as they constantly ensure moisture penetration of the wood surface. This process is not visible to the nRead more

For many, searching for the ideal sofa is like searching for a needle in a haystack. Therefore Home Centre would like to help you out.
