UNDERSTANDING handcrafted WOODEN FURNITURE

Hand crafted: Hand crafted pieces should be seen as works of art. Individual craftsmen labour to express the excellence of their skills. The slight variations and imperfections of crafting by hand make each piece unique and lends itself to a nostalgic character.

Wood is an extraordinary and beautiful natural material. As it is a natural element, there are things that you should know and expect from your real hardwood furniture.

NATURAL CHARACTERISTICS: Naturally occurring wood characteristics such as knots, variations in grain and colour are a part of every piece and these characteristics are what makes each piece unique.

NATURAL MOVEMENT: wood will expand and contract with seasonal moisture level changes. This may give the appearance of surface checks and fine cracks – often around the knots of the wood. This should not be seen as a defect. Quality craftsmanship will make allowances for this movement, and it in no way affects the structural strength and integrity of the furniture.

NATURAL COLOUR CHANGES: With exposure to both natural and artificial light, natural wood will undergo colour changes.

It is our opinion that these characteristics, variations and slight imperfections serve only to enhance the beauty of the pieces. Natural products with these characteristics are not defective and cannot be exchanged for the same item.
