Here at our shop, we use only the finest Hardwoods from this region and this fact makes our products much more valuable than anything you'll find elsewhere. You won't find anything with MDF with a convincing veneer that will match the beauty and durability of hardwood at a generic home-supply store, as those are created cheaply abroad. Whats worse is the imported furniture industry standard is a 200%-400% markup.
Unlike our competitors, we are committed to creating a product that will last for generations. Thats why we only use only the finest domestic Hardwoods like Ash, Cherry, Red Oak, Maple, Walnut, and White Oak sustainably havested right here in our region.
Our furniture is made to pass down to your grandchildren.

Ecos Paint was established in 1985 and they are committed to the environment.
When looking at the paint options available for safe, non-toxic paints, we found a few marketed as safe but then realized upon reading their data sheets that they were actually not quite as safe as advertised or worse, we could not find the data at all.
That's not the case with ecos paints, which are completely free of chemicals that are bad for the environment or for you. Its even manufactured right here in the USA in South Carolina.
It was a no-brainer when we decided to use these companies paints.
