To oil or not to oil... that is the question. Try using our filters to see which furniture is finished with natural linseed oil versus lacquer. Many of our customers are in love with the oil finish as it penetrates the wood and develops a deep, rich color that cannot be obtained with other finishes. Oil really brings out the depth of color and beauty of the grain that natural hardwoods are famous for. Over time, an oil finish will develop a rich, lustrous patina that’s beautiful to look at and super-smooth to touch. The downside to an oil finish is that it has to be maintained. You'll need to replenish the oil occasionally, maybe once a year or so depending on the temperature and humidity of your home. If re-applying oil isn't something you look forward to, no fear. A lacquer finish is maintenance free, and also very beautiful. Learn more about our fine furniture finishes and how to care for your bedroom set.
