The furniture by GMM is mainly produced from the following material categories - solid wood and wood panels such as chipboard and medium density fibreboard (MDF). The solid wood selection includes materials such as walnut, cherry and oak trees.
1. The walnut is valuable and durable and provides a luxurious and elegant look to any furniture. The color of the walnut combined with its mechanical properties make it relatively popular in the deluxe furniture sector. What is more, the walnut is characterized by its high strength, plasticity and tenderness and is relatively easy to process and polish without being susceptible to insect damage.
2. The cherry tree is hard and dense, however, quite elastic when being processed. Furniture produced of cherry wood look classy and even newly manufactured piece can look like a rare antique. With its colors from amber yellow through reddish and green, the cherry tree represents sophistication and class.
3. The next one in the list is the oak tree. The oak is relatively hard and strong material which contains various tones of both yellow and brown. The porous structure of the oak allows in the creation of patina effect on the furniture.
4. Chipboard (PDC) are tiles created from chipped wood. They can be either double or triple layered. The triple layered are the most commonly used due to its increased strength and advanced quality. The triple layered tiles consist of a thick layer fitted between two thinner layers stuck together with the use of formaldehyde waxes.
5. Medium Density Fibreboard or MDF are medium density wood fiber boards produced on the basis of wood particles, which are obtained by shredding residues from hard or soft wood to wood fibers. Wax and rubber are used as binders and the final product is stronger and much denser than the chipboard products.
