Solid wood. Unique. Handmade.
To every practical question, an emotional answer. We are the innovative furniture manufacturer from Berlin and bring the modern solid wood look into every home.
FraaiBerlin is the carpentry with design claim. Anything is possible, individually discussed, designed, built, and personally delivered to your living space. Old, characteristic woods from European forests are processed by Fraai as desired – Live your story, and your Fraai furniture lives it with you.
Whether made of lumber, old oak, ash, or birch, your Fraai furniture will last a lifetime. So show off that fabulous dance step on the table, say yes to all those impromptu wine sessions, and don’t get rattled when the whole class comes over for a kid’s birthday party. We built your solid wood wonder to withstand all challenges and adapt to your lifestyle, not the other way around.
The modern spirit of the times, sustainability, and the highest quality is in every fiber of our furniture. But what makes FraaiBerlin very special is the heart of the company – the Fraai family. We do everything we can to make your Fraai experience a relaxing walk in the woods, and we’re here to help and advise you even after your new Fraai roommate has moved in.

Tables, shelves, beds and closets can be easily disassembled whenever it’s needed with the help of a simple screwdriver. However, our dressers, sideboards, nightstands and any other furniture that we deliver in one piece should remain unbothered even when you need to transport them. Let us know if you have any special wishes!
Yes, you can. Pickups are possible at our workshop in Berlin, but you’d need to make an appointment with Albert beforehand.
In all cases, the time of delivery is set in advance, within a two hour window. We also call you on the day of delivery to confirm everything. If we can’t reach you or you don’t show at all, we’ll try to schedule a new delivery date. Sadly, in this case, you need to pay again for the shipping.
No. It doesn’t matter if you’ve bought a single nightstand or five tables, as long as all of them go to the same address, we won’t charge you extra for shipping.
We do. Seriously. FraaiBerlin’s very best strongmen are making sure that everything goes smoothly from the moment your furniture leaves the workshop until it reaches its new home.
No. Instead of sliding systems, our storage drawers are rolling on individual wheels.
There’s no such thing as “your size doesn’t exist“. We cut the wood where you want it. Whether you have a large family, a basketball team or you are a master of rolling around – we will create a bed landscape for you that is tailored to your individual needs.
Of course you can. Our furniture’s metal structures are available in all RAL-colors.
All our double bed frames are equipped with central support to make sure that your bed remains stable even when you load it with two separate standard or rolling bed slats.
We recommend leaving a 5-15 cm gap between the mattress and the bed frame. That way, the mattress will fit tight while having enough space to move around without rubbing against the frame.
In 99% of the cases, yes. The standard insertion depth for bed slats is 16 cm, but we can build your bed in a way so that it will fit any other sizes as well.
Only if you want to. We love the rustic looks of displayed screw heads, but we can also build any of our furniture in a way so that any joints and screw heads would remain hidden.
Although the wood still breathes, we design our furniture to be not only rock-steady, but completely silent under any circumstances.
Nature gives us the best designs. However, it is quite impossible to predict what patterns, cracks, how many knot-and wormholes old wood comes with as every piece has got its own character by nature. If you would like your furniture to have a certain appearance, we can change the color of the wood with the right kind of treatment.
Air humidity kept between 50% and 60% is ideal for the wood and minimizes the chances of developing cracks caused by shrinking. Also, avoid direct sunlight as wood can fade or discolor as a result of UV radiation.
Applying a layer of oil or wax at least once a year is essential to revitalize wood and keep your furniture in good shape..
Fraai furniture is designed and built for life. All the metal surfaces are lacquered while wooden planks are sealed with natural oil to make them both durable and good looking. We recommend applying a new layer of oil or wax on the furniture at least once a year to keep the wood protected.
Cracks and knotholes are natural parts of wood and we love them. Old wood can also develop surface cracks over time, which give the furniture more and more character as it ages. However, if you aren’t satisfied with the looks of them, we are happy to send you a special wood filler kit free of charge and tell you how you can make them disappear forever.
Absolutely not. The abandoned wormholes are perfectly natural, adding a good deal of beautiful character to our old woods, some of which are over hundred years old.
Absolutely. All of our furniture’s metal parts are available in any RAL-color of your choice.
Say no more. We put felt on the legs of our furniture so you can move them around smoothly all day long, without damaging anything!
The general rule of thumb is to allow 75 cm of space for every person gathered around your table.
Unless you order otherwise, all of our tables – except the ones with splayed legs – come with an overhang of 5 cm.
The standard height of our tables is 77 cm, unless you request otherwise.
Any size, seriously. We are building each and every piece of furniture individually to match the exact needs of its future owner. We can do smaller, bigger, longer, shorter, taller, thinner or thicker – it’s all up to you. So if you like a model, but you’d need it in a special size, we’d love to hear from you!
Most of our tabletops have a thickness of 4 cm, but this can of course be customized to match your needs.
No. For safety reasons, our splay-legged tables have been designed in a way that the outermost point of the table’s metal structure is always flush with the top.
FraaiBerlin = personalizable furniture. Therefore we do not charge extra for special requests, only for the extra material that’s going to be used.
Yes, we do. Do you have the tabletop of your dreams lying around and you would need one of our bases to transform it into a true eyecatcher? Tell us what you are after and we will find a solution to build it for you.
The statutory warranty of two years is of course standard. But even after that, we are always approachable and will find a solution to any problem.
First of all, don’t panic. The great thing about solid wood is that there is always a way to repair it. Send us some high resolution photos of the damage. We will do everything we can to make your beloved Fraai piece as good as new again!
There is only one way to find out!
You are always welcome to drop by for a visit at our showroom in Berlin (Living Berlin, 2nd floor, Kantstrasse 17, 10623 Berlin). We make excellent coffee!
Of course. Although we prefer to let nature take its course, epoxy can be used on any wooden surfaces to fill up knot holes and cracks. Sealing your furniture with lacquer is also an option that we offer.
Absolutely. Send us what you had in mind and our carpenter will make sure that it fits your new furniture flawlessly.
Yes, it is. Our dressers, commodes and other storage units can be personalized down to the tiniest detail.
Fraai shelves are very stable, but with small kids around, it’s always good to be on the safe side. We do recommend securing shelves that are rather tall directly to the wall with angle brackets.
We don’t have standard sizing for shelves. When ordering, feel free to send us a drawing of what you had in mind. A simple hand-drawn plan sometimes tells more than a thousand words!
Yes, we ship most of our drawers, sideboards, dressers and commodes preassembled and in one piece. Please, let us know if this could lead to any problems during the delivery.
