There are lots of good reasons to choose solid wood furniture, reasons that include style, renewability, eco-friendliness, sustainability, durability, versatility, price point, uniqueness, and just plain good looks.
Let’s take a look at these reasons a bit more closely.
Solid wood furniture works with every style. And that’s why you see examples of it throughout the ages. Wood naturally comes in different colours and it can be finished with other colours as stains. It can also be varnished or lacquered depending on the look you want.
Renewability and Sustainability:
Wood is a renewable product. Assuming that it’s being harvested in a renewable fashion, wood is a very eco-friendly choice. Wood doesn’t off-gas volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) like plenty of plastics do.
Wood is very durable. That’s why we see examples of pieces of wood furniture on the Antiques Roadshow from hundreds of years ago. When you invest in real wood furniture, you’re investing in something permanent. Furthermore, wood can stand up to multiple refinishes—something that can’t be said about manmade products.
The versatility of wood is what makes it so exciting. It can be finished and refinished in so many different ways. Wood can look right at home whether your design tastes are country, old-fashioned, contemporary, rustic, or refined. Wood always works and will never look dated like lots of trendy synthetic products will.
Sometimes wood costs more up front than man-made materials. However, wood has a much lower cost over time because it last so long. Wood lasts.
Every piece of wood furniture is an original piece. It’s not exactly like any other piece because all wood is different. Even different pieces from the same tree will have their own unique markings. No matter what you buy in solid wood, it’s a one- of-a-kind piece.
