As a customer-centric company, we choose to think alongside our partners to develop complete lifestyle solutions. Architects, project developers and contractors are invited to immerse themselves in the world of wood veneer and explore the full potential of how this noble product can be processed: in wall, ceiling or acoustic applications, flooring, or furniture.  

By providing our partners with the right tools and information to integrate the beauty of real wood into any day-to-day living or working environment, we bring them one step closer to creating a world full of wonderfully natural wood looks, a world full of favourite places.  


Mission and vision

The passion for wood within Decospan stems way back to its founding days, in 1978 with Urbain Desmet. A dedicated family business, the entrepreneurial spirit and passion for wood were passed on throughout the generations, creating a unique devotion and forward-thinking mentality that is still very present in today’s leading third generation.
