White Glove Delivery. This one has always brought a smile to my face as I remember years ago a customer telling me she was rather disappointed. I asked why and she told me that the delivery folks werent wearing white gloves when they delivered her furniture. Well... white glove delivery is just an expression used that indicates the furniture is being handled by moving professionals into your home. This is actually a very premium service that not many online retailers offer due to the high costs of the service. The advantage though is that a professional moving company is hired to pickup your furniture and bring it to your home where two professional furniture movers will bring your furniture into the room you need it and help un-box it. If your furniture comes already assembled then you are ready to go as this service usually doesnt include setup or assembly of furniture. The important thing about this service though is it gets the furniture right into the room where you need it. Much like truckline delivery you can setup a day and time window with the shipping company to schedule delivery.
Handmade Amish Furniture. In fact, most Amish furniture is handcrafted by Amish people living in individual communities whose work is marketed by local or national furniture stores or distributors. Take Simply Amish, for example. This firm is located in Arcola Illinois, and most of the furniture they offer is handmade by craftsmen and women within 20 miles of their distribution center. They use wood from sustainable forests located no further than 500 miles away. This an example of local men and women handcrafting beautiful solid wood furniture, and able to sell it through a central retail outlet such as Simply Amish, which in turn markets the furniture through local furniture distributors and retailers. Thats what Made in America is supposed to mean!
Traditional Chinese furniture demonstrates superb craftsmanship developed over centuries. Lacquer is prominent in traditional Chinese furniture with wood treated to a dark brown or shiny black finish and with hand carved or painted scenery, gold leaf overlay or mother of pearl inlays. Colours used are varied but include red which represents good luck and happiness and yellow or gold which represents health and long life. The peak of Chinese traditional furniture manufacture was the period between the Ming and Qing dynasties. Ming furniture represented simple structure, wonderful craftsmanship and minimal decoration which revealed the natural beauty of the wood. Qing furniture was larger in size and elaborate engravings were popular. Handcrafted traditional Chinese furniture makes a fascinating centre-piece for your home. From wedding cabinets to decorative chests, ornamental stools, two door storage cabinets, side tables and oriental screens, Chinese furniture makes a wonderful addition to any setting and is a work of art in its own right.
