Living like this means investing in the right wood for each of our 17 finishes. Cherry, walnut, mahogany, oak, sycamore and rosewood are the real thing. Lacquer finishes are hand applied in 10 or more steps to ensure the perfect shine and durability. Gold and silver leaf are also hand applied using gold-and silver-leaf paper. Most finishes are available in either a polished or satin sheen. Finishes are handmade and hand applied with each order, therefore finshes may slightly vary in color or grain if duplicates are ordered at another time.
