One elm trunk and a lot of Rubio Monocoat colours

​“A place where you are surrounded by authentic elements in design and you can savour the true taste of ingredients in a meal; that is the idea behind Gastropub Natura. The new restaurant Gastropub Natura in Ternopil, Ukraine opened its doors in December of 2017. It has been a great success ever since. They serve their delicious meals in natural surroundings. “Our carpenter built the bar, tables and many decoration elements from one elm trunk”, says the owner, Volodymyr Kharkavyi.
Elm wood is ring-porous and has striking growth rings. This gives the wood an attractive pattern with a rough grain. Elm wood is solid, fairly light and usually has an even structure.
Volodymyr Kharkavyi explains: “So, to save this unique structure we needed the best product to protect and highlight all wooden elements. Our architect recommended Rubio Monocoat. He had already worked with this product and knew that you provide the best service and high-quality products. After a few experiments, our choice was clearly Rubio Monocoat.”
Volodymyr Kharkavyi was not disappointed with his choice. He says: “I then contacted the representatives from Rubio Monocoat Ukraine and got very professional advice and I immediately liked the great diversity in your product range.”
Rubio Monocoat is the reference when it comes to high quality and environmentally friendly wood protection. Due to its unique technology, Rubio Monocoat has the qualities the owner was looking for: durable protection and keeping the natural look & feel of the wood.
Gastropub Natura used a lot of different colours, but it was not hard to choose. The owner explains: “I already had an idea of the colours and after I explained this to the representatives, I received a couple of colour variations. We then experimented a lot on my elm wood and figured out what I wanted. You know what I like so much about your product? The fact that all the colours can be mixed to get exactly my desired colour! I’m very pleased with my choice and with the professional work of the brand representatives of Rubio Monocoat. I definitely will continue to cooperate with you guys.”
And he kept his word because Rubio Monocoat Ukraine is now also doing the outdoor wood of the restaurant!
