This practical set adds a design element beside the sofa, against a wall, as a lamp table and generally anywhere a decorative shelf is needed. The stable yet slim iron frames have a matte black finish. A very special feature: the table surface is inlaid with end-grain veneer which is harvested from a very old oak tree. When making end-grain veneer, the tree trunk is cut across instead of lengthwise. This way, the growth rings are visible as circles and give an insight into the individual history and advanced age of every tree. The veneers used on Liayo come from oak trees that are at least 70 years and older. Such old trees in particular can develop cracks on the inside of their trunks. These are later filled with black synthetic resin varnish and polished. The Lambert Wood Care Set is excellently suited for taking care of Liayo.
