Jeff saw the original bench while visiting relatives in the Swiss Alps. The bench had been in the family for 100 years. Pictures and measurements were taken back to our workshop in WV and we had it recreated for our customers. Each piece is handmade, made to order in West Virginia and signed and dated by our craftsman. Perfect for entrances and schools. Made of solid cherry wood. Available in 6 colors.
Simple Care for Solid Wood: Dust regularly with a soft, non-abrasive cloth, always following the grain of the wood. Should your furniture actually need cleaning, use a soft damp cloth, then quickly wipe dry. You will not need to wax or oil our solid wood furniture. Please do not polish more than once a month and avoid silicone-based polishes and all commercial cleaners.
Cherry will darken as it ages. Exposure to direct sunlight accelerates this process. To prevent light and dark patterns from developing in the first year of ownership, please keep your furniture away from windows and make sure to rotate or periodically remove items placed on their tops.
Wood tends to breathe with changes in moisture and humidity. Extreme exposure to heat can dry out furniture and cause it to crack. Prolonged contact with water or dramatic increases in humidity can cause furniture to swell, warp and split. Always use a coaster or other protective padding when placing hot dishes or cold beverages on your furniture.
Smart Care for the Environment: For this line we worked with hardwoods harvested exclusively from the Appalachian mountain region of the USA by suppliers that meet strict state and national standards for forest management.
Original Purchaser's Warranty: Should you find a defect in workmanship, material or construction in an Appalachian Collection piece during normal household usage within five years of purchase, please notify us, and we will repair or replace the furniture at its option.
