About UMEBACHI FURNITURE

Umebachi Furniture manufactures and sells original furniture, custom-made furniture, and accessories made of solid wood.

We aim to create furniture that is simple, easy to use, and has a nostalgic feel to it.

We are particular about domestic materials and use safe and secure paint that is kind to people and the environment.

We hope that the furniture will add color to your daily life.

Design

The craftsmen design it themselves.

While incorporating old designs and elements, we try to design them to suit modern life.

We are exploring simple furniture that naturally appears from the Japanese climate.

Material

We mainly make furniture using domestic (Japanese) hardwoods (chestnuts, walnuts, cherry, ash, pears, etc.).

We dry wood without using any preservatives or insect repellents.

We adopted both natural and artificial drying.

By using both drying methods, the wood will be less erratic.

Veneer plywood may be used if necessary.

Painting

We paint with drying oil, which is called oil finish. By finishing with oil finish, you can take advantage of the texture of wood.

The paint is mainly based on linseed oil and tung oil.

We use products that do not contain any chemical substances and emphasize safety (conforming to European toy manufacturing safety standards).

For those who are sensitive to odors, we recommend solvent-free oil paints that have less odor.

(For more information on oil finish furniture → Let's go )

 

Urethane paint (conforming to the Food Sanitation Law) is also used when water repellency is required, such as on the top plate of a table.

Since it is a permeable paint that does not form a coating film, it looks almost the same as an oil finish.

 

We also paint with persimmon tannin, which is an ancient Japanese material, and dye with iron mordant.

The color of persimmon astringent changes deeper with the passage of time, and it becomes more tasteful.
