WHY USE BIRCH FOR CHILDREN'S FURNITURE?
Birch is strong, beautiful and durable:
Plyhome furniture is made from 18mm European Birch plywood, which is the best of the best in ply-land. We offer it in seven finishes:
- Natural (clear coat on top of the birch)
- Birch with a matte white, matte black, or smoky olive high pressure laminate (HPL) on the top layer (this option showcases the unique birch edge detail - unbeaten for its quality clean lines, this natural design feature has nothing to hide).
- Lava, Pebble, or Toffee (water-based stain with a water-based clear topcoat on both the surface faces and detailed ply edge):
Water resistant and kid friendly:
All seven finish options are highly durable (handy if your kids are like ours and leave questionable fingerprints on everything) and samples are absolutely available on request, just email us with your queries.
But, why Birch?
The wish-list we had when selecting our timber was brutal. You can read all about why the plywood we use is such a stand-out performer here. Keep reading to understand why it makes such a sensible choice for your kids and your home.
Birch is certified non-toxic:
Made from European Birch plywood from an FSC Certified mill using sustainable timbers, ISO 9001 certified and FSC-STD-40-004, Attestation Emmission Class E1, Complies with CARB Phase 2 and TSCA Title VI. That’s a whole bunch of science talk to basically say: "you can rest easy knowing that your kids are surrounded by a material that’s safe and produced in an environmentally friendly way."
Birch is tough:
Performance is what it’s all about. Our designs feature 18mm European birch, admired for its superior strength and reliability.
By the way, if your kid truly does possess superhero strength and manages (by some miracle) to damage it - you can contact us for a quote to repair.
Birch has a subtle fine grain and neutral tone:
Appearance counts too. Birch looks right at home in both contemporary and traditional homes without taking over from the overall look of a room.
Let your inner interior designer run wild with whichever look you’re going for and the Plyhome furniture will happily play a stylish, subtle background role.
