Most log furniture will simply bow and warp as it dries and shrinks from the controlled environment of your home. Adding extra weight such as sitting on it will assist in this undesirable process.

The reason is usually the instability of the lumber. These natural logs will usually continue shrink 20% to 35% more once they are in the environment of your home. This allows the slip joints to shrink and almost always bow and twist. If the weight of your mattress were also being supported by these semi cured logs it could add additional bowing and warping.

Designer Leather Furniture

We only use the best Full Grain Leather available from American tanneries. Full-grain leather or top-grain refers to the upper section of a hide that previously contained the epidermis and hair. The hair and the epidermis have been removed from the hide/skin. Full-grain refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed or snuffed (otherwise known as Corrected) in order to remove imperfections (or natural marks) on the surface of the hide, although is never perfect. The grain remains in its natural state which will allow the best fiber strength, resulting in greater durability.

The natural grain also has natural breathability, resulting in greater comfort for clothing. Rather than wearing out, it will develop a natural patina and change in its appearance over time with some cracking and splitting. The finest leather furniture and footwear are made from full-grain leather. For these reasons only the best hides are used in order to create full-grain or top-grain leather. Fine art high end fabric is available for all custom furniture. Order your designer furniture hand made custom for you at Scottsdale Art Factory - call 1-800-292-0008.
