What Is Fluted Glass?
Fluted glass refers to glass panels or surfaces that have decorative vertical grooves or channels running along them. It is a popular design element used in modern furniture and architecture.
Overall, fluted glass offers a combination of visual, functional, and textural benefits, making it a popular choice for modern furniture design.
What Is A PU Coating & Manufactured Wood?
PU coating, short for polyurethane coating, is a protective finish applied to manufactured wood surfaces. It is a type of synthetic material derived from polyurethane polymers. PU coating offers several benefits, including enhanced durability, moisture resistance, and increased resistance to scratches, stains, and UV damage.
It provides a consistent appearance and helps protect the underlying wood from wear and tear. PU coatings are commonly used in furniture manufacturing and other applications where a protective, attractive finish is desired.
What Is A Powder Coated Finish?
A powder coated finish is a type of coating that is applied to various surfaces as a dry powder. It is a popular method used to provide a durable and decorative finish to metal, ceramic, and even some plastic substrates.
Powder coated finishes offer several advantages. They provide excellent resistance to chipping, scratching, and fading, making them highly durable. They also offer better protection against corrosion and weathering compared to traditional liquid paints.
What Is Manufactured Wood & Timber Veneer?
Manufactured wood, also known as engineered wood or composite wood, refers to a type of wood product that is created by binding together wood fibres, particles, or veneers with adhesives under heat and pressure.
Manufactured wood offers several advantages, including increased stability, uniformity, and resistance to warping and shrinking. Timber veneer surfaces in furniture involve the application of a thin layer of real wood veneer onto the surface of a furniture piece.
Veneers are slices or sheets of real wood, typically obtained from a log through a process called slicing or peeling. These veneers are then applied to the manufactured wood substrate or other surfaces using adhesives.
Timber veneer surfaces provide the appearance and feel of real wood while offering a natural wood aesthetic with variations in grain patterns and colours.
What is Vacuum Plated Finish?
Vacuum plated finish, also known as vacuum metallisation or physical vapour deposition (PVD), is a surface coating technique used to apply a thin layer of metal onto a substrate. In this process, a vacuum chamber is utilised to evaporate the metal material, which then condenses onto the surface of the object, creating a metallic coating.
The result is a durable and visually appealing finish that replicates the appearance of various metals, such as chrome, gold, or silver. Vacuum plated finishes are commonly employed in automotive parts, decorative items, electronics for their decorative and functional properties, and of course, furniture items.
What is the Difference Between Vacuum Plated and Painted Finishes?
Vacuum plated finishes involve depositing a thin layer of metal onto a substrate through a vaporisation process. This creates a metallic appearance that mimics the properties of different metals. Vacuum plating offers high durability and can withstand wear, while providing an authentic metal-like finish
Painted finishes, on the other hand, involve the application of liquid paint or coating onto a surface. Painted finishes offer a broader range of colour options and can achieve various textures and effects.
However, painted finishes may not have the same metallic or reflective properties as vacuum plated finishes. They may also require additional protective coatings to enhance durability.
In summary, vacuum plated finishes utilise a vaporisation process to deposit metal onto a substrate, while painted finishes involve applying liquid paint or coating. Vacuum plated finishes offer a metallic appearance with high durability, whereas painted finishes offer a wider range of colour options but may require additional protection for durability.
Are Pedestal Tables Sturdy?
The drum base of the pedestal tables feature a concealed weight that provides extra stability at the bottom of the table. This means most of the table weight is contained at the base and provides better stability.

Spills should be soaked up immediately with a clean, absorbent soft cloth or paper towel. Mild cleaning products can be safely applied to the metal's surface. Just be sure to wipe the solution with a clean, soft cloth. Do not place sharp objects atop your metal table.
Avoid putting acidic material, such as lemon juice, onto your metal surfaces.

Keep product out of direct sunlight.
The timber veneer or wood will lighten and surface finishes may degrade if exposed to bright sunlight. Wipe timber veneer or wood with a damp cloth. Avoid the use of household chemicals and cleaners.
Spills must be soaked up immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or paper towel.
We recommend the use of coasters and placemats to prevent damage.
