CHABU-DAI (Japanese low dining table)
Paulownia is very light and easy to use but easily scratched.
Honji finish is Wajima Kirimoto’s original finish technique which overcomes the delicacy of paulownia.
The glass fibrous film coating is formed on the surface of the table by rubbing lacquer and Wajima jinoko (roasted, crushed, and sifted diatomaceous earth) into paulownia wood.
The harder the surface becomes, the more resistant it will be to scratches.
Applying ash for modesty panels and legs in order to enable strengths. Mounting brackets of leg part are foldable.

About care for lacquered furniture
Wipe with a moist cloth and then dry it off with a dry cloth.
Polishing with a dry cloth will prevent white marks consisting of chlorine and will keep the furniture beautiful.
When stains cannot be removed by wiping with a dry cloth, moisten the cloth with a little neutral detergent, and then wipe it as in the above procedure.
About secular change
The color of the furniture immediately after you use it seems to be dark. After six months to one year, lacquer settles and becomes more transparent then an enhanced sense of natural depth expression is revealed. The Dark color is weakened and the entire image is brightened.
This is the characteristic of lacquer and not color fading.
Please enjoy the impression of the lacquer which is completed slowly over a longer period of time.
※The change differs depending on the place of your usage.
※The change of color will settle over several years.
