A cosy nook for the parents

Attics and flea markets are full of old wooden furniture just waiting to be used for creating an environment of timeless calm, the embodiment of Scandinavian interior design at its best.

An ambience that highlights translucent light colours is easy on both on the eye and on the soul.

Small boxes were lacquered with several coats of Kiva Furniture Lacquer in various shades.

For a cool and translucent mood, use cooler-toned colours.

Restoring your furniture

Pine furniture yellowed by age was cleaned and freshened up with light-toned Kiva Furniture Lacquer (3466).

Test the lacquer first in an inconspicuous spot.

Use darker shades of lacquer or opaque paint for better results on wood darkened with age.
