Finsa Decorative Veneer Selection
Veneer offers the very best of wood. Naturalness, touch, warmth, decorative effect, material nobility and origin.
Wood is ever-present in our lives. Throughout generations, it has accompanied us and has been a part of our living environments. It is in our past, present and future. Wood veneers connect us with the essence of wood: look, feel and warmth. At the same time, it allows preserving this precious natural resource. Technically, it consists of a thin layer of natural wood applied over a technical wood core medium, with infinite possibilities.
A decorative surface that we can see, feel and touch. A material with excellent performance, which offers the best results in a variety of applications: doors, furniture, panelling. Different and unique spaces, adapted and customised to any decorative style. This is what natural wood veneer can offer. This is its origin. Unique by nature.
Wood veneer is a versatile material that adapts to new trends without losing its essence. Natural or multilaminate veneers, in natural tones or treated through dyeing or fuming processes, refined or rustic compositions show us that natural materials also add design value. In our four collections – Carácter, Organic, Milano and Bohemian, we have selected veneers with a unique and innovative character, which allow you to create your own style.
Strength and uniqueness are the hallmarks of the veneers included in this collection. Knots, cathedrals and cracks are the ingredients that prompt us to touch and feel an organic material of great beauty. Urban environments reconnect with nature by drawing on the personality of wood
Nature Vintage Oak
Grey Vintage Oak
Nature Vintage Oak. The ultimate expression of oak wood, with all of its natural character. Veneer cut from inside the trunk, with its natural cracks and open knots over a black background, to highlight the intensity of wood.
This collection offers veneers without excess of ornament so that we can focus on the essence. Species like Oak, Birch and Ash ranging from white to black, including grey and natural tones as well. Very delicate and soft, these veneers help us to create minimalist rooms of Nordic inspiration.
Grey Birch. Birch wood, thanks to its fine grain and soft veins, is closely linked to Nordic-style spaces. This veneer is tinted in an ash grey tone, which enhances the contrast between the rings and further accentuates its delicate figures.
Milano is an elegant and refined collection, whose highlight is Italianinspired high-end design. The intense but balanced tones of this proposal create welcoming spaces, radiant with warmth. Walnut, Oak and Eucalyptus wood are treated according to a fresh approach, renewing the contemporary style.
Fumed Forte Oak
Europa Walnut. This reconstituted veneer is inspired by European walnut wood, characterised by a creamy white tone and a core of grey or brown tones with darker veins, which generate an unusual structure, of surprising elegance.
Bohemian invites us on a trip to faraway lands. With a markedly exotic character, this proposal celebrates diversity and ethnicity in an cheerful way. The veneers of this suggestive collection radiate positivity and encourage you to create stimulating environments, which awaken the senses.
Kandy Ebony. A very elegant finish with an exotic flavour, reminiscent of ebony, characterised by a linear arrangement of very dark heartwood alternating with the pink streaks of this tropical wood. This design allows moving away from the classics, and exploring the creative limits of a material as noble as wood veneer.
Notes on Manufacturing of Wood Veneer
SLICING TECHNIQUES: One of the characteristics that defines wood veneer, in addition to the species, is the design itself. We can control the final result, by applying different slicing techniques.
JOINTING TECHNIQUES: The veneer sheets are joined to form the layons of veneer. Different jointing techniques can be used depending on the intended decorative effect.
It is the most common method: The strip are turned before being jointed, so that each sheet is symmetric to the previous one, resulting in a "mirrored" or "open book" effect.
The sheets are jointed without turning them, to produce a repetitive pattern.
The sheets are jointed randomly. A jointing process with unlimited possibilities, both regarding strip structure, combination of strips widths, colours of the different sheets, etc.
VENEER GRADES: There is a market standard that ranks veneer grades. It is a visual classification of faces, based on the various characteristics of natural wood: Symmetrical or balanced structure, tone, and uniformity. According to this classification, we can set apart three grades of veneered panels:
Well-defined and centred structure, uniform colour, without process-related defects or natural wood imperfections.
Standard Quality. Good structure, small variations in colour and appearance generally attractive.
Varied and irregular structure, with greater variation in colour, shorter series of similar faces, with some knots and other natural imperfections.
