No one knows cherry wood furniture quite like Harden Furniture. Harden Furniture has been producing high-quality wood furniture since the late 1800s. In the 1930s, they made the move from mahogany, maple, and birch wood to using the native black cherry of local New York forests. To accompany their dedication to using local wood, Harden also implemented a sustainable forestry program, later gaining national recognition for their emphasis on environmental sustainability. Every piece of furniture is designed to highlight the natural beauty of the wood, as they ensure each piece of dark cherry wood is perfectly matched and contains visible natural defects. To further protect the wood and ensure it will last for years to come, Harden employs an 18-step finishing process, making sure the deep cherry finishes are phenomenally strong and ready to become heirloom pieces. Harden furniture designs are often adaptations of period pieces, taking inspiration from early American and European masters like Thomas Chippendale and George Hepplewhite. With decades of experience behind them, Harden perfected their trade and created top notch designs that became a status symbol in America’s elite. Harden furniture can even be found in the White House, as they were commissioned to produce a number of pieces for the First Lady’s office and the Theodore Roosevelt room. All in all, when you’re looking at cherry wood furniture, vintage Harden furniture is a great investment.
