Our Furniture is always built out of solid hardwoods and, in some cases, solid hardwood plywood (shelves, cabinet backs and some sides). Solid Hardwoods have many different characteristics and every piece of furniture will look differently. “Hardwood” does not indicate the heartiness of the wood or its resistance to damage. Hardwood technically refers to wood that comes from a dicot tree, such as a broad-leaf variety like oak, that usually goes dormant in the winter. “Softwood” refers to wood that comes from gymnosperm trees like pine.
Hardwoods have a complex structure and are slow-growing as a result, reaching full maturity at 80 years. U.S. hardwoods have been used for years in furniture, musical instruments, flooring, and cabinetry.
All hardwood contains variation in color and grain. Each tree is unique, which means each piece of furniture is different in grain pattern and color variation. We cannot control the type of graining or coloring your piece will have. Hardwood ages with time and will deepen in color.
