There are many benefits of Hardwood Furniture, such as the furniture available from Brandenberry Amish Furniture in Shipshewana, Indiana.
Benefits of Hardwood Furniture
One of the benefits of hardwood furniture is the durability it provides. If you’ve ever admired antique furniture for its beauty and elegance, you need to ask yourself why these pieces are still around. Because they were crafted from hardwoods. That’s why!
In fact, modern wood artisans craft most, if not all, of their pieces from hardwoods. Often, they utilize indigenous hardwoods. In fact, the top Amish cabinetmakers in the Midwest handcraft the most beautiful pieces of furniture from hardwoods like maple, oak, cherry and hickory. And you can check out these pieces — thousands of them — at Brandenberry.
Take a Closer Look at Hardwoods
Research the variety of wood species, whether native or imported, that are being used to crafts some of your favorite furnishings. What are the benefits of each wood species? Does a maple piece possess a rich, warm color but lack the strength of oak? How does a traditionally cut oak piece compare to a quarter sawn white oak piece? Does a hickory furnishing add a rustic accent to a furnishing better than a rustic cherry piece?
