Time honoured skill and thought are put into every furniture design, aiming to offer a selection of highly engineered modular systems that are balanced in both beauty and function.
Ultra High-Gloss Lacquer
Following careful acquisition of the finest raw materials, ALF Italia furniture begins with a core of real organic timber veneer, stained in a selection of velvet finishes to accentuate the grain and visual texture. Once the veneers have been stitched together and heat-sealed, the lacquer process begins. The veneer is sprayed with lacquer in a specially made airtight container to prevent dust and impurities invading the glossed surface. It is then methodically buffed as an extra measure to smoothen ripples. This tried and tested process is then repeated five times to ensure a crisp and perfect finish before one last coating of smooth polyester lacquer is applied. The surface is then dried under UV light to ensure an ultra high-gloss surface, providing one of the strongest and cleanest finishes available for lacquered furniture.
Stunning in form, ALF Italia strive to develop furniture that is as functional as it is beautiful. Their six-layer lacquer process ensures that each surface is applied with a slick shine that is highly resistant to clouding or dulling over time. This provides a crisp and clear finish that accentuates the natural textures of the oak veneer beneath in a far deeper and brighter effect. This specially curated process requires careful craftsmanship and makes ALF Italia furniture extremely durable and resistant to chemicals and alcohol. So, you won’t have to worry about spillages tarnishing the look and quality of its sleek surface.
