What Are the Advantages of Solid Wood Furniture?

There are so many advantages of solid wood furniture that it’s hard to list them all. But we’ll take a stab at it.

1. It lasts longer.

If you’ve ever seen some faux wood furniture delaminating, then you’ll know what we mean. Solid wood furniture has a very long life. It doesn’t come apart, and it resists crushing and damage from water.

We obviously wouldn’t recommend soaking solid wood furniture in the bathtub, but water doesn’t destroy solid wood like it will destroy particle board or MDF (medium-density fibreboard).

Solid wood furniture can even be refinished in 50 years to look different, something you can never do with furniture that isn’t solid wood.

2. It’s eco-friendly.

We carry solid wood furniture that comes from a renewable resource. It won’t off- gas any VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) that non-solid wood furniture can because it’s solid wood. Cutting up lumber gives off a lot fewer pollutants than the production of plastic or faux wood products like particle board.

3. It looks better.

Faux wood is obvious from a mile away and looks junky. Solid wood looks like solid wood. There’s nothing else like it. Solid wood furniture looks warm and has a natural beauty.

4. It’s timeless.

Solid wood furniture can be finished in all kinds of ways and in every colour. It can go with any kind of design scheme.

Glass furniture, for example, looks contemporary no matter how it’s put together. Glass breaks, too. Wood furniture has been around for thousands of years, and there are examples of it from ancient Egypt. The reason why solid wood furniture has endured is because it performs so well as furniture.
