Their shared vision that good design should never cost more, that there is always a solution, and that one-plus-one can have an exponential result has earned them career-expanding projects, multiple design awards, more than a dozen patents, two children and a fine-tuned sense of what consumers want and need in well-designed products. When we were re-doing our house, the furniture companies we worked with told us the same thing about certain designs.
Both MDF Italia and Tobias Grau took home 2011 Interior Innovation Awards , and the winning products from each were presented in a special exhibit during January’s imm Cologne trade fair. Mahogany is used extensively for high quality, expensive furniture such as wooden cabinets and veneered tables and dressers. If you prefer a more rustic look, prime and paint the furniture as usual and then dip a dry brush in white paint.
Our furniture is either made of MDF conjunction with solid wood, wood veneer conjunction with MDF and solid wood, or entirely solid wood. The design of a room should complement the personality of the people in it: neat, well-categorised shelves for the organised; excitingly overstuffed cabinets for bohemians; comfortable, expansive desks for the studious, bright, spacious layouts for creatives. Some said it doesn’t matter, MDF is as durable as whole tree or sandwich boards.
You can easily paint MDF units in whichever colour you fancy, but it’s a good idea to go over them with a primer first, and make sure you wear a dust mask. The following demonstartes the making of our exquisite furniture with solid kiln-dried wood frame and MDF panels. All our products are made from MDF (medium density fibreboard): the product of real woods having been ground up into pulp and then blended together with waxes and resins – so it’s basically zombie frankenstein wood.

An oil-based paint will deliver a better result where MDF is to be used for kitchens or bathrooms. Lime also stains well, has good bending properties and is often used for making furniture. MDF boards need to be stored in an area that is protected from sun, rain and wind so that rapid changes in temperature and humidity are avoided.
So if you must use MDF as a substrate, fine, but if you make the carcass out of MDF, it won’t make good joints and will be too heavy to move without too much stress, and I think you are guaranteeing your craftsmanship will be in the dumpster in 30 years, max. In this example a pattern based on a pixilated image of water was custom cut into MDF panels. MDF should be conditioned to reach the humidity level in which it is to be used.

So that’s the long way of saying, I try to keep MDF pieces somewhat small unless I’m adding tons of support, because on it’s own, it’ll definitely bow and bend over time (and it doesn’t take long for MDF, either). For complex pieces of veneer work, I understand all of the arguments about using MDF as a substrate for veneering and, fine, I get it. I don’t like it, and I wouldn’t be too keen on buying a piece with it, but okay.
