With a little care and maintenance, solid wood furniture can retain its original beauty and durability for a lifetime. However for this to be possible, we have outlined some measures that need to be taken.
Our furniture is crafted from solid wood that is kiln dried, retaining enough moisture in the wood for the furniture to properly acclimatize to your home. Wood will however continue to exchange moisture with air, expanding and contracting in response to changes inrelative humidity.
Solid wood's response to dry air is to lose moisture and shrink a bit. The halves of an extension table may part slightly or panels in your cabinet doors or bed may shift. Tiny openings may also appear inthe wood surface. This will correct itself as the relative humidity rises, and the wood absorbs enough moisture to expand again. In extreme conditions the wood may be under enough stress to crack.
Solid wood's response to a humidity that is too great causes it to absorb moisture. This can result in making moving parts non-functional. This should correct itself when your relative humidity returns back to a normal percentage.
Below are a few tips to maintain your solid wood furniture:
