Beech is a very hard wood type and ideal for indoor furniture.  


Beech grows naturally in Europe, especially Central Europe, and can grow up to 40 metres tall and 2 metres in diameter. It is relatively easy to source due to the large tree trunks with little waste. All sourced beech is FSC-certified (FSC- C135991) of the highest quality and comes from responsible suppliers. 


Untreated, beech has a reddish-brown colour, and the surface is even with dark brown, comma-shaped flecks. 


By surface treating beech, additional durability and easy cleaning opportunities are obtained. As beech has a homogenic surface with little absorption, paint and other surface treatments are evenly distributed on the surface. Therefore, when painting beech, the wood structure is not visible through the paint.  


At Studio CHS, we have standard surface treatment options but can also customize to fit individual needs. 

Sourcing, treating, and manufacturing the wood is all done in the Studio CHS factory which gives full control of the quality inspection as well as the flow of raw materials and components from forest to sawmill to manufacturing. This allows us to monitor lead times from the uncut log to the final beautiful piece.
