Benefits of Handmade Furniture. There are many benefits of buying handmade American furniture. A major benefit is quality: sure, some furniture made by hand can be of very poor quality, but firms such as Simply Amish do not market poor quality goods, and such products would be returned as unsellable. It is not the individual craftsman predominantly at risk, but the retailers and their suppliers. That is why the more respected American furniture retailers will market only the very best handmade furniture alongside their mass-produced standard stock. Handmade American furniture is constructed using traditional carpentry standards as used by the master cabinet makers of years gone by: men such as Thomas Sheraton, Gustav Stickley and Duncan Phyfe.
Origins of Black Lacquer Furniture. Oriental black lacquered furniture was commonly found in the temples and palaces and homes of the wealthy upper classes. Four basic styles of lacquered furniture design were used throughout the Ming and Qing Dynasties which lasted from 1368 - 1911. These styles included carving the lacquer, using black lacquer to fill in a design engraved into the wood and rubbing it flat, outlining the black lacquer and inlaying mother-of-pearl into the lacquer. White lacquered furniture can be made from a variety of woods, such as reclaimed pine, which is hand finished with a gleaming white lacquer finish. White lacquered furniture has a fresh, clean, contemporary look, and includes beds, side tables, coffee tables, trunks, console tables, mirrors and large sideboards all elegantly hand brushed in a linen finish. This style of furniture has increased in popularity in recent times and can come with attractive and elegant features such as antiquated yet contemporary brass flip up handles and sanded edges which subtly reveal the warm waxed wood underneath.
