Pine furniture is affordable, looks fresh and sold in virtually any sort of interior. This type boasts an increased environmental friendliness, since the pine wood is exposed to lower chemical treatment during the production. These are just a couple of reasons that make pine furniture deservedly popular, and a closer look reveals even more positive moments. So let us uncover the microscope, initiate a 3D overview of pine furniture in modern and trendy interiors, and pay close attention to a variety of possible pine combinations, its noteworthy strong suits and mistakes to avoid when creating an interior look and feel.

Pine properties

Pine furniture is overwhelmingly designed as massive constructions, with thick, typically up to 2 inches, tops, shelves and legs. This is explained by the nature of the pine wood – very soft and pretty loose; thin and graceful articles are out of its purpose scope.

Thus, for example, oak furniture, being a dense hardwood, allows carving lovely tables with cabriole thin shelves that keep the weight off, while the table made of pine must have a thick table top and thick strong legs to ensure strength and manage the load safely and carefully.

For this reason, pine furniture is oftentimes associated with protozoan design – concise forms, the minimum or complete absence of fretwork and so on.
