For more than ten years, Noir has been designing, building and importing our very unique, but ever growing collection of home furnishings. We emphasize natural, simple and classic designs and we do our best to manufacture in as green a way as we can. We still build our furniture the old fashioned way using high quality and properly dried solid wood. We take great pride in what we do and we hope that you will enjoy our products for many years and perhaps even generations to come. "We select lumber from well-known suppliers, who guarantee their drying process specifically for export. On larger panels and backs, we use ply wood to minimize the risk of shrinking or even cracking. All finishes are hand applied and sanded repeatedly, then finished off with a lacquer top coat or wax."
