Fine furniture like a fine car is built on a solid frame. You wouldn’t buy a car with a plastic frame, so why would you buy a sofa made with it? Quality upholstered furniture is built with strong hard wood frames.
Our hardwoods are kiln-dried which means they are heated and dried in a specialized wood kiln. The wood is dried before construction which helps to promote strength and stability. Cheap furniture rarely has kiln dried wood making it more likely to warp, twist, and shrink. This weakens the frame and the life of the piece.
If you’re curious, hardwood is defined as wood from deciduous trees not evergreens. Pine frames often found in cheaper furniture will frequently split and crack. You’ll find no pine furniture frames in the quality furnishings at Mister Robert.
