With Autumn around the corner, Ostermann’s experts give tips on how ABS edgings can be used to evoke the season’s cosy connotations through interior design. 

Autumn is colourful, with its characteristic warm brown, red and ochre tones. When hit by the soft light of the shortening days these colours glow in a very special way. The result is a distinctive, pleasant flair that fits well into our interiors.

To make the choice of materials easier for furniture makers implementing the style, Ostermann’s experts have selected seven different edgings that reflect the autumnal atmosphere, and which can also be combined well with each other: warm earth tones, dark wood and material reproductions in textile and rust looks. 

Ostermann benefit: individual edgings are available from stock in small quantities from just 1 metre, in numerous standard widths and, on request, with a functional layer for zero bondline technologies. Furniture makers will also find the selection of trend edgings in autumn colours under the search term “#Highlights10” on the Ostermann website www.ostermann.eu

Warm plain colours for colourful inspiration

The softly shimmering, light tone of the ABS edging Toffee super matt reflects the luminosity of yellow-orange foliage. Combine it with the light brown of the ABS edging Deep Sahara super matt or the slightly darker and reddish brown of the Rosso Namib ABS edging, and you will achieve a charming and cosy atmosphere. If your customers want to go darker, choose the ABS edging Sepia brown with its elegant velvet structure. All mentioned edgings can be combined well with each other, or optionally with decor edgings.

These decor edgings are a perfect fit

If you prefer wood decors, choose the ABS edging Sulawesi macassar brown. The lively ebony decor with its characteristic longitudinal grain completes the colourful splendour of a bright autumn forest. Alternatively, the material reproductions on the two ABS edgings, Curio – a rustic textile decor, or Bronze Doré – a modern rust decor, go equally well with the presented plain colours. 

Store boards and edgings out of the cold

When the days get shorter and the nights cooler, it is essential to think of sufficient time to acclimatise boards and edgings. If they come directly from the lorry or from unheated rooms, the materials must be stored at room temperature for at least 24 hours before processing. Otherwise, the open time of the adhesive will be compromised and the hotmelt adhesive will not establish a sufficient bond.

Ostermann tip: if there is a risk of frost, do not forget the white glue

Due to its high water content, white glue cannot be shipped at freezing temperatures. It is therefore important to order sufficient supplies in time (now at the latest) according to your demand. Ostermann’s experts recommend REDOCOL Kombicoll Super-N D2 or REDOCOL Kombicoll Super-N D3. When applied as a single component, the second variant meets the requirements of durability group D3. Mixed with 5% hardener R 397, it meets the requirements of durability group D4 according to DIN EN 204.
