Pine furniture is constructed from the beautiful soft wood which creates a comfortable, casual ambiance in any room. The unique appearance of the knotty, light-colored wood sets it apart from other, darker more traditional woods. Pine, well known for centuries for its country charm, is making a resurgence in the furniture industry as many individuals are rediscovering its simple charm and beauty.
Traditionally, pine is waxed or painted following careful construction. With a waxed finish, the original color and texture of the pine is readily apparent. With painted pine, while the natural hue of the wood is covered with the paint color, the almost rustic charm remains. Despite the treatment, pine continues to breathe overtime and is susceptible to heat, chill, and humidity.
Like all natural woods, pine must be well maintained. As it is a soft wood, it is malleable and easily dents or scratches. As most pine furniture pieces already contain the small imperfections characteristic of the material, such as knots and shakes or cracks, this softer texture may not be of tremendous importance – an additional bump might simply add more character. To further protect pine furniture, it is essential to avoid extreme temperatures or lingering exposure to moisture. With general care and maintenance, pine furniture will remain in fantastic condition for many years.
Handcrafted pine furniture is available from many fine retailers, such as Konteaki Furniture. With a variety of furniture lines constructed from natural, painted, and even reclaimed pine, Konteaki Furniture has the pine products necessary to add stylish, country charm to your home.
