Timber & Plywood

AMONGST his many achievements, celebrated American architect Frank Lloyd Wright was famous for saying: “Wood is the most humanly intimate of all materials. Man loves his association with it, likes to feel it under his hand, sympathetic to his touch and to his eye. Wood is universally beautiful to man.

THE GCC countries imported around $900 million worth of hardwood in 2013, reflecting the vitality of the industry in the region, according to the organiser of the recent Dubai WoodShow, which was held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC) in Dubai, UAE.
