Cherry is a premium American hardwood prized for
its natural luster, attractive grain, and rich, warm glow. Green
Design Furniture works in cherry harvested from the Allegheny Forest
region of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, an area recognized for
its sustainable forest practices. This wood has a consistently high
quality of grain, color, and width. We also accept orders to make
our furniture in other domestic hardwoods, including ash, maple,
white oak, and walnut. Until the worldwide rainforest situation
improves, we have elected not to work with imported woods.
Cherrys Aging Process
When your new piece of Green Design Furniture arrives, it will have
a light, golden tone. Over the next 12 months the color will darken
to a rich, red-brown. Darkening occurs gradually, as the furniture
is exposed to light. These photographs illustrate the difference
between a brand new tabletop and one that is a year old.
