Your solid wood furniture is very low maintenance. Most pieces are lacquer finished and only require regular cleaning with a damp cloth. Never use a cleaning product containing silicone as this will deteriorate the finish. Avoid direct sunlight as this may cause fading or bleaching over time. Maintain minimum humidity levels of 30% year round and use a moisturizing product like Howard’s Feed N Wax to avoid drying out and wood shrinking.
Absolutely not, nearly all of our “Built-to-Order” items arrive to us fully assembled and ready to deliver. This allows for solid construction to add durability and strength and saves you the headache of spending all weekend trying to put it together. To allow for easier shipping some items do come in to us requiring assembly. These items are always assembled by our trained personnel before your delivery or pick-up is arranged.
