Furniture as long as there is a piece of wood, dare to call it solid wood furniture, this phenomenon will end after May 1. Since May 1, the general technical conditions for wood furniture issued by the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China will be implemented. This standard will help to standardize the production of solid wood furniture, and there will be legal basis for dealing with some disputes between merchants and consumers.
In a furniture store in our city, the reporter found that the products known as solid wood furniture, except for the main frame using solid wood, the rest of the parts are wood-based panels, which makes people feel more and more necessary to correct the name of solid wood furniture. According to Wang Huizhong, director of the furniture inspection office of the Municipal Quality Inspection Institute, the solid wood furniture is divided into three categories: all solid wood furniture, solid wood furniture and solid wood veneered furniture. All solid wood furniture is the furniture made of solid wood sawn timber or solid wood board, except for mirror supporting plate and pressing strip; Solid wood furniture is the base material, which is made of solid wood sawn timber or solid wood board; The furniture with solid wood veneer as the base material is made of solid wood sawn timber or solid wood board, and pasted with solid wood veneer or thin wood veneer on the surface.
Consumers spend a lot of money, hoping to buy "pure solid wood furniture", but many businesses are making articles on the word "solid wood". A few days ago, Mr. Zhou, a citizen, bought a six door wardrobe for more than 10000 yuan in a furniture store in our city. At the time of purchase, the sales staff promise: it is solid wood furniture absolutely. However, after buying the wardrobe home, careful inspection found that the wardrobe is actually made of solid wood and wood-based panels, which is commonly known as "solid wood veneer" furniture. Mr. Zhou found the merchant to ask for the return, but the merchant refused to return the product and compensate for it on the ground that "the product does use solid wood as the raw material, and the sales did not indicate that it is 100% solid wood material". Industry insiders believe that the implementation of the new standards will be of great significance to the increasingly standardized market products.
