5 Benefits of Wood Furniture

Wood furniture is not a fad—this material has been used in furniture construction for generations and offers a timeless look.  We could create a much longer list of why wood furniture is so great, but let's just start with these 5.

1.  Durability

There is strength and durability to a well made piece of wood furniture, especially when made from domestic hardwoods (that's all we use- Oak, Ash and Walnut).  Solid wood furniture is timeless, sturdy and built to last generations, even centuries.  This provides an incredible value for your money.

Wood furniture is a family-friendly choice as well, trust us, we've got 3 kids that test our furniture daily.

2.  Versatility

Wood can transform the mood of a room or entire house and looks good in any design- industrial, farmhouse, traditional, modern, contemporary, etc.  Whatever your style, it can be built in wood. 

Above you'll see a historic Victorian home with a classic walnut dining table and a modern home with a Scandinavian style dining table- both made from wood- both a very different look.

3.  Sustainability

Wood grows naturally, and modern forestry standards harvest wood in a sustainable way to preserve the environment of the forest. In addition, the wood we use in our furniture is sourced locally, reducing transportation costs.  Check out what House Beautiful had to say about "Why Wood is the Sustainable Material You Need in Your Home".

We love the beauty of real wood, it can't be replicated.  Rays, heartwood, curling are all a natural part of the mature material and add character to your furniture.

5.  Style

There is no household area that doesn’t suit the warmth and richness of wooden furniture. Tables, beds, countertops, shelves, cabinetry and mirrors.  Most of all, wood offers a unique combination of aesthetics and structural integrity- built to last.
