How To Take Care Of Your Danish Teak Furniture

The use of 100 % natural materials as wood, stone and marble stood out the mid century home interiors: furniture, floors, walls, ceilings and rooms accessories. Utilizing them, the architects could actually connect the inside and the outdoor.

Stone and marble floors were great to unify -both essentially and in practice- living rooms with terraces and if polished perhaps even could reflect the exterior surroundings.

The coarse irregular surface of the flagstone that have been used for the floor surfaces acted furthermore as a stratum for the smooth stones chosen to line the fireplace.

The flue was built within the cross wall and covered, using only the aperture to reveal that it was a fireplace.

Within the vast variety of woods available to the designers, Teak appeared to be one of the most appreciate and employed specially by Danish designers.

Teak is a kind of wood with unbelievable characteristics arriving from Asia. It was actually in use in Denmark since the twenties to become the characteristic of Danish creation in the fifties.
