Sustainable Design and Economical Choices
Ever heard the saying “I’m too poor to buy cheap things!” ?
This stems from “cheap costing” = “cheaply made”
Inexpensive furniture simply does not last as long as quality, moderately priced furniture.
Solid wood furniture will last a lifetime, and can be refinished should you ever want to change the colour, or refresh the finish. Scratches and dents that develop over time can also be treated with stain touch ups or wood filler, whereas veneered wood products (thin layer of wood on top of other lesser quality wood, MDF or plywood) can chip and peel which is an irreparable situation.
