When it comes to selecting furniture for group living, treatment centers, or hospitality nothing comes close to the durability of classic wood-framed furniture or what is sometimes called “wood crate style” furniture.
At its 1980’s inception, classic wood-framed sofas, loveseats, lounge chairs and bedroom pieces were designed from actual heavy-duty shipping containers. But today’s versions are manufactured with purpose and craftsmanship.
Responsibly harvested pine and oak are manufactured into the contract furniture industry’s most economic and longest-lasting furniture options. Updated styling, clean lines, and a variety of wood finishes create a modern-day look that fits almost any décor.
For those who think “hey I love the durability but I also want style,” you may be surprised at the fashion-forward options available.
- Any available upholstery fabric from a modest solid to an outrageous print can be used to create seating cushions. The end result is a total wow effect that will satisfy both staff and consumers. Since the cushions are easily replaceable, keeping a fresh look is convenient and inexpensive.
- Besides being inherently hard-wearing and tough due to solid wood construction, the catalyzed lacquer finish creates a smooth, durable, water-resistant surface that repels spills and inhibits pest nesting.
- Optional fluid-proof or fluid-resistant cushion upholstery fabrics work with the benefits of the durable wood frame to create a common-sense solution for fluid-issues, frequent spills or even occasional incontinence.
