HOW & WHY TO PROCURE SOLID WOOD FURNITURE?
Depending on the vendor, exporting country, purpose and furniture design that you have in mind, the potential variants of solid wood furniture are plenty and choosing any particular type can be tricky
Teak for instance, is also a solid wood furniture, but due to the high cost and also due to the similar properties and aesthetics other solid wood variants, like Mango Wood offer, it may not be the best choice for you
While procuring from a manufacturer like us, make sure that you've downloaded yourself on technical aspects of wood and wooden furniture, it is the only area where a supplier or a manufacturer can deliberately leave on important information that is crucial to your purchase decision
PRICES & BUDGET
As mentioned earlier, generally speaking, solid wood furniture is expensive but this again depends on the designs you opt for, wood species etc.
At FurnitureRoots, we've scouted several furniture markets, manufacturing hubs and studied demand patterns quite closely before we zeroed in on the destination we finalized for our manufacturing unit [See Image Below]
There are two quite straightforward reasons for selecting this as our main hub, for one, it allows us easy access to extremely well-skilled labor at a low-cost. Secondly, it also allows us access to 2 of the most suitable, cost-effective, and value-for-money solid wood species - Mango wood and Acacia, among several others.
Bringing these wooden furniture species into Australia and selling them directly here at factory prices allows for an easy and low-cost access to solid wood furniture in the Australian market
While it may seem paradoxical, solid wood furniture is generally a more eco-friendly alternative when compared to engineered wood furniture. Solid wood furniture harvested in most countries, even in ours, come from managed forests where the felling of trees is constantly monitored.
Moreover, most solid woods come from trees that are available in abundance and protected under policies wherein substitution policies are in place. Even the amount of processing that solid wood has to go through is much lower than engineered wood, meaning fewer toxins like formaldehyde, adhesives, etc.
At FurnitureRoots, we sell our solid wood & hardwood based furniture at these locations globally
