The demands of modern retail and store fixture manufacturing come together to create designs that cleverly intertwine art, architecture, and technology into the retail space and the displays that hold merchandise. Store fixture display design and finishing involves the combining of mixed media and special effects more than at any other time in store fixture manufacturing history. Retailers depend on strong design to give them a competitive edge. Creating store fixtures in unusual sizes, shapes, finishes, and layouts, provide visual impact and can effectively mold consumer impressions.
Popular modern designs include organic and geometric shapes that demand the use of more flexible and workable materials. Veneer and laminate products are perfect materials to work with in shaping, cutting, and finishing these unique and unusual store fixture designs. Store fixture manufacturers that work on-site to create entire vignette settings or perhaps several different but similar displays within a single retail space can create a matching of interior space and fixtures that results in a unified look. FormWood has the products that help you accomplish that look. Fixture manufacturers can choose from a virtual plethora of domestic and exotic veneer, veneer laminates, and RainboWood™ veneer.

Advantages of Veneer in Store Fixture Manufacturing
- Veneer allows the use of exotic wood species and rare formations (burl and crotch wood) to be used more economically.
- Wood patterns can be matched and arranged producing a variety of beautiful effects (diamond, herringbone, cathedral, and checkerboard, etc.). Wood veneer also possess unique characteristics that would not be usable or possible to achieve in solid wood pieces.
- Many complex wood formations such as walnut burls are too weak structurally but bonding them to sturdy core materials permits their use in a variety of applications.
- Veneer can be laid up with their grain arranged at right angles, which can be bonded to lighter cores to make transport easier.
