Object D'art - Timber


Made of Indonesian Sungkai wood, these incredible timber sculptures  are a classic member of LuMu Studio's decorative range (Sungkai wood belongs to a small number of species recommended by The Indonesian Ministry of Forestry for use in the development of sustainable industrial forest plantations (IFP)). The IFP's are carried out in response to an increasing wood demand and aim at reducing pressure on natural forests, thereby contributing to national land conservation objectives as well as the supply of industrial raw materials.

These incredible sculptures are great on their own or mixed together with other decorative objects for maximum effect. Each piece is hand painted to achieve a handmade effect.

Please note that timber is a natural, living material. Cracks, holes and imperfections are a natural part of the timber and are not a fault or flaw of the piece, rather, it is a unique and beautiful characteristic of each piece. The care of wood furniture varies according to the wood type and finish, and the function of the piece.

All our timber products are intended for INDOOR use only. They are carved from Indonesian Suar Timber which has been kiln dried for several weeks and have a waterproofed base with furniture feet/castors applied to every piece.

Timber products tend to expand and contract over time with different humidity's and environmental conditions and you may notice cracks appear and subside overtime. Timber, however, is a natural product and existing fluids and moisture can sometimes continue to leech through the base of each stool over time. We DO NOT recommend placing these items directly onto carpet or rugs. A protective liner must be used if placing timber pieces onto carpet or rugs where limited airflow exists.  

To minimise movement or cracking, solid furniture should not be placed outside (unless the item is specified for outdoor use), in direct sunlight, or in heavily air-conditioned or climate controlled areas.

General Care

  • To dust, we recommend using a microfiber cloth for wood furniture, as this will not damage the surface.
  • For deeper cleaning, wipe the surface of your timber with a damp cloth, then dry with a soft clean cloth to prevent spotting.
  • The surface of your furniture should not come in contact with hot and/or moist/wet containers/materials. We always recommend using coasters, place mats, tablecloths and table runners to protect furniture surfaces from heat and stains. Take extra care to protect your surfaces from candles and heated objects. Please use protective layers between the surface and decorative items to avoid discolouration and scratching.
  • If you choose to polish your furniture with a product/solvent, you should always try it out first on a small, inconspicuous area to trial how your timber will react.
  • All these pieces have been hand finished in an acrylic paint (white or black) brush marks and imperfects are a normal part of the finish.
  • To prevent permanent discolouration, do not leave objects in the same position on the furniture over long periods of time.
