Many of our pieces are made from reclaimed wood or are textured and hand-planed – this makes them family-friendly but appropriate for either everyday dining or the special dining guests. They are not constructed from particle board and veneer. Many of our furniture pieces are also finished with eco-friendly water-based lacquer, a healthier choice for your family and your home.

Don’t throw your money away buying disposable furniture. Instead, purchase solid wood furniture and you will get a product with which you will never need or want to part. Fine wooden cabinets, tables and chairs are an investment, but they will be heirlooms your children will want to keep.

Reclaimed wood is a great choice for those concerned about the environment while looking for a unique piece of furniture with a bit more character. Another excellent eco-friendly choice is Mango wood. Believe it or not, mangos are the most popular fruit in the world and are used in a wide variety of cooking styles from sweet to savory. Southeast Asia, where much of our furniture is made has many mango plantations. Toward the end of its life the mango tree no longer bears fruit so it is cut down and replaced with a new sapling. Each piece of our furniture that is made from Mango wood is one less hardwood tree that is wasted.

Wooden furniture is not limited to the classic styles your mom and dad had in their dining room. Modern furniture production has led to new and unusual designs that fit your urban highrise condo or your ranch-style home. In addition to fine dining and bedroom sets, we also have a great selection of living room furniture such as sofas and chairs.

Attention to every design detail from construction method to finishes to hardware and pulls ensures timeless styling that will be appreciated for years to come. Each piece is handmade which gives a unique character to each piece.  Look for classic techniques such as dovetail drawers and mortise & tenon joints to ensure your furniture lasts a lifetime.
