Bradshaw Kirchofer furniture is designed to look as though it has been around for years. Bradshaw Kirchofer currently offers 30 finishes. While new, Bradshaw Kirchofer pieces have a rich, worn, weathered feel, reflecting usage over time. They use the finest materials in finishing, and the Bradshaw Kirchofer team undergoes extensive training, so that they may produce the quality of furniture you have come to expect. All finishes are done by hand and reflect hours of hand rubbing. Finishes may vary somewhat, wood characteristics may vary considerably. For these reasons, Bradshaw Kirchofer is unable to guarantee an exact match. Each piece is hand finished with great care and thought to achieve it's own unique look.
Natural signs of aging, nicks, scratches, such as season cracks, shrinkage, distressing are a normal part of this look. Nature is unique and never duplicates, making no two pieces of wood, even from the same tree, exactly alike. Slight color differences between pieces of a collection or even in one piece of furniture may be noticed. Natural stains, knots, wood grains and markings inherent to wood products are considered desirable features. They enhance the uniqueness and beauty of the furniture, and are not to be considered defects in craftsmanship.
Bradford Kirchofer makes every effort to conceal the knots and grains on painted finishes. However, due to natural resins within the knots and grains, Bradshaw Kirchofer cannot completely eliminate them or guarantee to control them. Over time, some sooner than later, the knots and grains may bleed through and discolor the finish. This may be more apparent on light color finishes. This discoloration is not to be considered a defect in craftsmanship. Irregularities in the finishes are not to be considered defects. While finishes are durable, they are not indestructible.
Do not use furniture polish that contains abrasives or ammonia. With Bradshaw Kirchofer lacquer finishes, use only high grade furniture polish, and clean by putting the polish on a clean cloth, then wiping the furniture with the cloth. Never spray or apply furniture polish directly onto the furniture. Bradshaw Kirchofer suggests a writing pad to protect surfaces from scratches on the top of desks. When moving furniture, always lift entire piece off floor before moving it. Do not push, pull or drag the furniture as damage may result.
