Just because your furniture is really, really, really good-looking doesn’t mean it hasn’t been designed and built to use! Please don’t put us in your ‘good room’ to just sit there and look pretty. We use quality materials, along with meticulous attention to detail, so your Christopher Blank piece will stand the test of time.
So, you’ve nurtured your design, fed it form and function, now you finally get to meet it in person and bring your new baby home. You stare at it with love heart emoji’s in your eyes, and then the panic sets in. It’s so beautiful, so defenceless and precious. What the frick do you do with it now?
The answer is; you care for your timber and treat it with a little respect. Don’t get us wrong, it’s hardier than it looks, a little roughhousing is fine, but try not to drop it on its head, ok?
If you follow our simple steps your piece will last so you can pass it down to some lucky bugger you really like.
Timber is a natural material with varying grain detail, colour and finishes. Christopher Blank’s philosophy is to always honor the integrity of the materials we use, especially our timber. Timber will naturally shift slightly, especially in warm climates and environments where temperatures change frequently from hot to cold or vice versa. Make sure you carefully choose the placement of your piece, and keep it out of direct sunlight to avoid discoloration. And don’t put it outdoors where it isn’t protected from the elements – you wouldn’t put grandpa outside in the rain without a jacket, would you?
