Wooden furniture comes glossy where you often touch it. When the sunlight flows, The luster gradually deepens. In the same way as a floor and a pillar, The solid wood gets old at a pace of nature.

From the trustworthy lumbermill and wood channels

The main wood of domestic furniture such as Oak wood, Walnut wood, Cherry wood is imported from the foreign countries. For example, United States, Canada, Africa ; etc. In addition, It is important to confirm appropriately the management method and the arrival channels of the raw wood. We purchase only the wood of the business operator which acquired a certificate(Documents Required for verification on Legality and Sustainability of Wood and Wood Products) following a standard not use the wood felled illegally.

Attention to wood is evident in every detail

With woods grown through decades, we make domestic furniture. By each process of the factory, we produce many mill ends every day . In addition, We offer wood chips generated from a wood processing facility every day to the cooperating chicken coop. To play the following leading role, We are struggling to use up wood effectively.

Pursuing to produce "safe and secure" products is crucial for our service.

We keep it in mind to use the material which we examined carefully so that the material which we use not don't cause significant harm to our customer's health. moreover, We aim to avoid as much as possible a material that said to be one of the causes of the "sick-building syndrome". We are struggling to develop the furniture production that can be used safely by anyone.
