We put a lot of effort into selecting the right wood for our production. We do this for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is important to us that all of our pieces of furniture are made in solid, quality wood so that it maintains its impressive look for its entire life span. Secondly, we wish to promote sustainability and care in the Danish furniture industry. We do this by exclusively using wood from FSC certified suppliers and by making sure to arrange the production so that we minimize waste of the materials. Most of our wood is from Europe, which means that it is subjected to European regulations of sustainable forestry, which we wish to support.
Wood is a natural material. This means that it continuously works depending on the humidity of the atmosphere in the room, that the wood is placed in. Our furniture has been dehumidified to a humidity level of approximately 8%. This corresponds with an atmospheric humidity level of 40-60%, which we would normally experience in a room temperature of approximately 20° C.
Natural materials like wood will vary in its structure which means that each piece of furniture will have a unique look. To get the full potential durability of your furniture from Duus & Møller, please ensure to care for and maintain the solid wood several times a year – Read more.
Our Standard Assortment of Wood
Oak wood is a very strong and solid type of wood and it ensures a lively and decorative look. Oak wood furniture is for that reason the Danes’ favorite type of wood, when choosing a Scandinavian décor.
Ash wood has the same strength as oakwood but is at the same time very flexible and hard. Ash wood furniture has an easy and bright expression.
Walnut wood is likewise a very strong type of wood. The unique part about furniture made in walnut wood is the great impact strength, that surpasses both oak - and ash wood furniture. The dark Walnut wood also has a more characteristic look – beautiful, elegant and tenable at the same time.
Solid Wood Veneer
On a few surfaces, solid wood veneer is used.
Veneer is thin slices of wood that has been cut, peeled or sawn out of logs of wood. We use tangent-sawn veneer for surfaces that has plywood as its core material.

To saturate the wood, it is first processed with a ground oil. The wood is then coated with an oil with a deep white pigmentation. White pigmented furniture has a bright expression and a durable finish.
