Rustic, white-finish collections
Specifications for collections featuring lighter finishes such as white, ivory and light gray, that are build in solid pine.
Among the many characteristics of solid pine, a living material that naturally reacts to environmental conditions by shrinking, expanding, and cracking, this wood species also features knots and color variations on the wood grain.
Some knots bleed resin which may seep to the surface underneath the white finish and develop amber markings. Other knots might not ever change.
Environmental conditions such as excessive dryness, humidity, sun exposure /direct sunlight will speed up these natural aging features.
All the above features provide the piece a unique look of time-worn furniture. We do not consider these characteristics to be defects, but natural markings of a piece made of real wood that don’t affect the integrity and functionality of the furniture.
Touching up a solid-wood rustic piece is easy and can be done periodically by anyone. At IFD we are able to offer touch-up kits through our Service Center to anyone who desires to cover occassional amber markings.
If you’re interested in obtaining one of these kits, please contact your authorized dealer.
