What is the difference between premium quality and natural quality ?

These two qualities differ only in their appearance. They are both equally strong. In both cases, they are glued-laminated panels, i.e. made up of solid wood lamellas glued to each other width-wise and length-wise of the lamellas.

The premium quality has a more homogeneous appearance than the natural quality. The peculiarities of the wood and the natural variations in colour are limited. The natural quality is, on the contrary, more heterogeneous, and we left more natural peculiarities of the wood while selecting the lamellas, such as sapwood, knots or lamellas of different colours, although of the same species.

It is also a budgetary and aesthetic choice that must be made between these two aspects.
