The Nero Ray side table has a modern look and fits in almost every living style. Nice to place separately or in combination with a higher side table from the same collection. This table is also available in black.
All items of the Nero collection are made from teak wood. Teak wood is indigenous is India, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, but because of extensive logging it is only in Myanmar that it still grows in natural forests. In Indonesia it was introduced in the 16th century and during Dutch colonial time large plantations were started. After Indonesia became independent the Indonesian government has managed the plantations. This has been quite successful, as teak is a valuable wood and it has always been economical to replant teak after logging trees.
Practically all the teak wood in Indonesia that is used for furniture production comes from these plantations. Only for local use sometimes teak from small farms near villages are used. Since it does not grow in the natural forests of Indonesia, no tropical forests are cut for teak wood.
Since 2016 the Indonesian government has regulated all timber trade, with a system to trace all wood that is exported back to the source, where the trees were cut. This has been part of a the FLEGT trade agreement with the EU, to guarantee that only legal wood is imported into the EU.
These aspects together make teak production in Indonesia and its use for furniture both economically and environmentally sustainable.
Since wood is a natural product, it naturally moves in accordance with changing conditions, like cold and dry winter months. To prevent your furniture from gapping and moving, you have to keep your home’s humidity in check. We therefore recommend a humidity in the room between 40% and 60%. To prevent the humidity from dropping too much, water evaporators or humidifiers can be used. It is also advisable not to place wooden furniture near heating sources or air conditioners. Please remember these are common occurrences in natural wood furniture. Even after the winter months, ensure good humidity in the house. Together with the warmer outside temperature, this will ensure that the wood works less quickly and therefore does not crack.
No matter how good the drying and moisture treatment is, small shrinkage cracks can always occur, especially in the head/end of a plank or product. This is a normal operation of the wood and is usually barely noticeable. However, if a larger crack develops, we recommend contacting our customer service.
-The wood has a water-based coating, which protects against water stains, but advised is to use the furniture only indoors and not to leave fluids on the wood for longer period of time.
-Small damage or scratches in the wood with natural colour can be treated only on the spot itself with transparent or very light coloured oil.
