It has a gorgeous natural look
Its beautiful grain patterns and lines are often imitated but always fall short of the uniqueness of real hardwood.
It's actually a smart investment
While budget furniture, like that made with MDF, chipboard or veneer, or even those made of softwood like pine, may seem like they offer excellent value when purchased, they offer much less value in the home. This furniture requires extra care to keep up its looks and is much more susceptible to staining, marks, chips or bowing. So while the price of hardwood can seem higher, you are actually investing in a piece that will serve you better over time.
Our incredibly high build quality, and the striking good looks of the wood grain fare well with the most basic of care routines, and is much less likely to warp or show damage over time. Hardwood could easily retain it’s quality for a lifetime, making it a truly smart purchase. And did we mention our incredibly affordable finance options?
It’s resilient and strong
There are lots of different types of hardwood on the market, all with their own unique qualities. As our name might suggest, we love to use oak (natural and rustic) in our products, as its strength makes it one of the best types of wood to be used in furniture. It’s also workable enough to be styled into our varied ranges of furniture, allowing our designers to create superb pieces of furniture. Some of the other popular types of hardwoods that you will see in furniture are acacia, mango, ash and mahogany.
It’s also important to notice that some furniture is built using hardwood veneer (thin slices of hardwood bonded to a composite board or plywood) to get a similar “look” to our furniture, but the quality is then compromised. We only use solid wood in our furniture, which means that every part of our furniture - from the drawer backs, bases and runners to the slats of our bed frames - is made of pieces of genuine hardwood and nothing else.
It’s easy to look after
One of the best ways to help your furniture acclimatise is to treat it immediately with our specially formulated wax polish, and to continue treating it at three month intervals. Doing so will protect and nourish the timbers, creating a long-lasting, protective seal. And that’s it! From a care perspective, hardwood furniture is one of the simplest to maintain, and keeps looking great over time.
The beauty of hardwood furniture is that it can be changed over time to give it a whole new life. By sanding, staining or painting it you can change the finish wood furniture and go for an entirely new look.
It’s a decor staple
Adding a piece of wood furniture to a room will immediately change its feel and look. Hardwood furniture generally signifies quality and sophistication, and really elevates the style of your home, no matter what room you place it in.
