care & Construction

Materials:

Our wood furniture is built using solid, sustainably harvested domestic timber and premium hardware.

Construction:

Our furniture is constructed using a combination of technology and craft. Each piece is cut using a computer controlled router for precision and assembled and finished by hand for quality. Parts are joined using mortise and tenon connections for maximum strength and reliability.

Care and Maintenance:

Because of the inherent nature of solid wood, the color will change with time and the material will expand and contract depending on humidity and temperature fluctuation. The expansion and contraction may result in some warping of the wood, but avoiding or reducing extremes in humidity and temperature fluctuation will minimize the results. Many examples of centuries old solid wood furniture are still in use and have had varying degrees of care.

We believe with a few simple precautions, our pieces will be around for generations.

  • Clean using a damp soft cloth turning it frequently and rinsing if there is a large build up of particles.
  • A mild soap can be used to remove tough grime.
  • Avoid furniture polish, harsh cleaners, and abrasives. Corian and Richlite can be cleaned with a mild detergent.
  • Avoid window cleaners.
  • Avoid placing furniture near a heat source like a radiator, heat vent, or fireplace and keep out of areas of prolonged direct sunlight.
  • Use a coaster to avoid rings from glasses and keep solvent based materials like nail polish remover, rubbing alcohol, and perfume from coming in contact with the finish.

Weight Capacity:

Our wall mounted furniture was designed, engineered, and tested to withstand everyday use while exercising some degree of care. Although it's difficult to determine a precise weight limit because of variables including, but not limited to, type of wall surface, stud mounting locations, type of fastener, and location of the weight concentration (distance from the wall), we've compiled a list of acceptable applications for each piece.

If you feel your usage falls outside the parameters listed below, please contact us and we'll discuss details or modifications that will suit your needs.
