Solid Wood Collection
Davis Furniture’s Solid Wood Collection illustrates a commitment to sustainable harvesting practices and craftsmanship. Available in a variety of solid-wood options including elm, oak, sycamore or walnut, each piece begins as a single-sourced trunk consciously chosen at the end of its lifecycle. Trees up to a hundred years old are selected within European forests and are aptly granted new life with these products. As the timber is harvested, two saplings are planted to continue the legacy of their predecessor. Once the logs are processed, great care is taken to guarantee that any unusable elements of the trunk are used in a purposeful manner to ensure a zero-waste harvest. The cut lumber is then stacked in the exact formation of the original tree and air-dried. Every board is carefully monitored for two years until each piece achieves the perfect moisture equilibrium needed for lasting construction. After this extensive curing process, Swiss craftsmen select their material from a single tree and individually configure the timber to provide the basis for each piece of furniture. Finally, each product is then finished with either clear lacquer or linseed oil, which allows the true beauty and depth of the wood to be realized.
