It is not easy to choose furniture materials that will decorate our home, influences trends, textures and colors, mixtures have become an important part of the personality of the spaces. That’s why from lagoa we want to put our knowledge, and help you with simple and original ideas.

The furniture materials we use are carefully selected because we work with local suppliers and our furniture is manufactured one by one we can guarantee that the material is what we say it is.

Furniture made of wood, metal or made with the latest materials, as well as decorative and functional pieces, are designed to last with the passage of time. Skilled workmanship and the highest standards for our furniture, is why lagoa has created its collection of essential furniture, loaded with quality, design and style

Metal is one of our favorites. It’s the last trend !!! We combine it with wood, glass and even other materials that can be a great contribution to the decoration. We bet on it, giving a retro and urban touch to your home.

Metal with glass on one side, and metal on wood on the other, are two blends that have become an institution, if we talk about setting a unique space inside the home.

Metal, glass and wood have their own character. The purity of the glass complements perfectly with the simplicity of the metal. In this way, a piece of furniture structured around these two materials will maintain clarity and lightness. In times where space is a precious commodity, this element is a great solution.

The sensations produced by the wood appear lighter when combined with metal, but still maintaining that warmth, naturalness and firmness that will contribute to the space where it is located.

Our clients look for the personalization of their furniture, we convert a common product into something unique with simple changes of texture and color. Our interest is focused on reducing the visual weight of furniture, so we are fans of custom-made furniture because they allow us to accommodate the needs of each person, and home.

lagoa offers different alternatives from which to choose, depending on what we like, our day to day and also our budget. Furniture lacquered in different shades, natural wood or wenge, iron and aluminum or raw with the option to finish them yourself, are the flagship of our collection.

Regarding color, light and neutral tones, such as white and beige, have the virtue of reflecting more light, which makes places look bigger. They are ideal for small spaces, houses with not many square meters, the vast majority nowadays.

The darker tones, such as blacks, grays and coffees, are used in wider and more open spaces, with large entries of light.

The materials for furniture with which we work in lagoa :

2. Solid wood: We usually work with solid pine, because its price ratio seems to be the best, we feel  the price of solid oak is very expensive, but we also workwith it when you ask, but sincerely you get spectacular results with pine , So why pay for a walnut cabinet or any other noble wood? Probably in your house you have a lot of furniture of tropical wood (teka, acacia …) mass produced in Asia, the problem of these woods is that they are of a tropical clime, reason why they run the risk of cracking, buckling, as the wood, even dried and treated is a living being that interacts with the environment and exchanges moisture, so be very careful with this.

3. Wood veneer wenge finish:

This material is composed of an agglomerated particle board and 2 layers (top and bottom) of pine wood veneer tinted and varnished in the color you want. It is a more resistant material than the wood itself, that does not bend or bend over time and is much easier to work and therefore more economical.

The finish that we do is always satin (that is to say it is neither bright at all nor matte), with varnishes and water-based dyes that do not pollute and are not toxic.

4. Wood veneer finishing bleached: It is a bleached finish that lets you see the grain of the wood, as the former is satin, it is as if we took a board and give it a white glaze, it is a beautiful finish, very useful in small spaces, as it enlarges the dimensions Of the room, in small spaces it is always better to use light colors.

5.Water based enamel:  Although this is not a finish that we do, it is the one that we propose you to do yourselves at home. It is a finish that imitates lacquering, but you can do it yourself at home without gun, since the vehicle that carries the color is water, so that neither smells nor emits toxic substances, can be diluted easily with Water to make the layers uniform, experts say that it is more durable and resistant the normal lacquer of polyurethane, but I have several furniture finished home by myself, which I use frequently and still have not seen the difference..

aluminio

Aluminum: it is the one we like the most, because it weighs a little, it resists a lot and does not need any special care, it can be coated over time (a long time) with a light patina of whitish oxide (nothing to do with iron oxide, sincerely Nor do you notice it). It is not easy to find in Spain who works well, except for windows and other locksmiths, we had a hard time finding a good workshop to make our furniture that can fold and weld aluminum.

Hierro lacado: Lacquered iron: cheaper than aluminum, but the lacquer can leap and rust, in principle every 2 years maybe you´ll need to sand and retouch, it all depends on how is protected. It weighs a lot. The painting is done in an electrostatic paint oven, so the finish is of high quality and we also have iron in natural finish, almost black, and with imperfections of the material. We apply a colorless varnish to keep them in perfect condition for a lifetime.
