Wood – a solid and renewable material with character

Our woods come from a controlled forestry because we believe in this point as well in durability, responsibility and quality. Stains and lackers are tested on their environmental safety before use. Be pleased with chosen woods, which are professionaly processed and which give your piece of furniture a very special look.

Types of wood

himolla processes solid wood (e.g. used for legs), high-quality decorative wood made of glued beech (e.g. for the Zerostress frames) and veneered panels made of wood-based materials (e.g. in the table tops). As wood
is a natural product, colour and graining differences cannot be excluded and consequently do not form grounds for complaint! It is precisely the existence of irregularities in graining, surface properties and colour which
distinguishes the genuine nature and elegance of the woods used in our furniture.

Wood is a natural material which goes on "living" even when in its processed state, and therefore reacts to changes of room climate. If the room air is very humid over a long period, the wood will absorb the moisture and expand. If
the air is too dry, particularly in winter when heating the house, moisture will be drawn out of the wood. This will cause it to shrink. This reaction is natural and must be expected to occur. However, if the correct room climate is maintained, this phenomenon can be largely avoided. The correct room climate is an air temperature of between 20 and 22°C at a relative humidity of around 50 to 60%. In sunlight, wood tends to undergo certain changes, for instance by growing darker in colour (light coloured woods) or bleaching (darker coloured woods).

The products with visible wooden parts are identified as such with numbers in the price lists:

Wood colours

himolla proposes a large variety of colours with mat, shiny or shaded surfaces.

You may get an overview of all those colours with our wood colour chart. Please ask for it at our retailer before choosing your favored colour.


Differences cannot be excluded because wood is a natural material.

We reserve the right to supply slight colour deviations, as wood absorbs stains differently during the staining process. Particularly when oak stains are chosen for use on beech wood or when trying to match furniture items
bought subsequently, the stains can deviate from the original samples.
