Mahogany planks are hand-sanded to bring out the natural wood grain patterns, followed by hand-distressed methods that create the worm holes, nicks and dents of a cherished antique. Layers of staining are applied to provide a warm glow; the Antique Mahogany finish emphasizes the natural grain and natural red tones of mahogany wood to achieve a rich, warm finish. Finally, a soft lacquer is applied to corners and edges, to replicate a time worn patina. The Antique Black finish takes these pieces to another finish level, as this stain is hand-applied atop the Antique Mahogany finish; a slight rub is added to reveal glimmers of the warm, brown tones of the Antique Mahogany finish. This collection features solid brass antiqued hardware, replicated from New England antiques. Handcrafted by Indonesian artisans of solid mahogany and mahogany veneer panels, each piece features intricate, geometric design of raised wood molding and crown molding that frames the tops and bottoms of this collection. Each piece will have slightly different shading and grain patterns, and due to the nature of a multi-layered finish that is hand-applied by our craftsmen, there will be variation from piece to piece.
