French Accent uses all the traditional elements that past craftsman have use for centuries to make great quality furniture. It’s not difficult to judge quality in wood furniture and you don’t need to be an expert to do it. All you need to do is look at the material, construction, and finish and take your time.
Wood source: Quality furniture is generally made out of hardwood which comes from deciduous trees like oak, maple, mahogany, teak, walnut, cherry and birch. French Accent uses oak, walnut and cherry wood.
Construction: The way a piece is constructed can contribute to its beauty, functionality and how long it will last. The joinery and sturdiness of a piece will tell you a lot about its quality. French Accent uses only traditional joints in our furniture.
Finish: Sanding, staining, and finishing are part of the process, and neglect at any of these stages can affect the overall quality of a piece. A high-quality finish is satiny smooth and free of rough spots, dust specks or bubbles. French Accent uses traditional methods of finishing our furniture.
Please take care when comparing items as many times these elements can be shortcut producing furniture that will age well or last. Take a look at our guide to learn more.
