Caring for Your Piece of George’s Furniture

Caring for Your Piece of George’s Furniture

Caring for your piece of George’s Furniture is not like caring for just any piece of furniture. The finish used on each of our pieces is a durable, high-quality finish—and it is the best we have found for the following reasons:

  • The finish is both heat and water-resistant
  • You do not need to use coasters for hot and cold drinks.
  • Warm dishes will not make white rings on the table (however, when taking items directly from the oven, stovetop, or microwave, a hot pad is suggested)
  • A good rule is: if it is not too hot for your fingers, it will not harm the table.

For weekly care, we suggest:

  • Furniture can be washed with a damp cloth.
  • Duster spray may be used (however, sprays that contain wax may cause an undesirable build-up over a period of time)

For occasional care, such as polishing or to remove fingerprints, use a good grade furniture polish. Our favorite is Old English Lemon Oil, but Guardsman is also a good choice!

It is important to note the following about your piece:

  • The finish will have a chemical reaction if it comes in contact with rubber cement, airplane glue, or similar products.
  • Permanent magic markers and cigarette burns cause permanent damage to the finish.  
  • The finish will scratch and the wood will dent, so be careful not to slide heavy objects across the table, counters, dressers, etc. A staple or even a hard crumb could cause a surface scratch or indentation.
  • This is solid wood furniture, and it can be refinished.

If the damage is a deep scratch or dent and the finish is broken, the damage can be minimized.

  • First, soak the dent with a water saturated washcloth for several hours.
  • Then, while protecting it with a damp washcloth, apply a steam iron to the dent and process will help swell the dent out to the original level.
  • Please call us for advice on this process.

Having been in business more than 47 years, we have already had families who bought a table when their children were small.  Then, when their family was older, they brought the table back to us and for just $250 to $300, we refinished the tabletop to look as good as new.

If you have any questions, please call us!

Furniture That is Built to Last

Furniture That is Built to Last

We often get asked what makes our furniture last so long. Many of our customers own George’s Furniture heirlooms that have been passed down to them—or they themselves plan on passing their pieces down to their children and other family members.

There are several reasons as to why our high-quality, hand crafted furniture is built to last right here in Lancaster County.

  1. Built from strong solid hardwood — Wood is a resource that keeps on giving. Pennsylvania forests are managed and cared for to strengthen and increase sustainability and the quality of our products.
  1. Constructed with the ability to adjust to moisture changes — between seasons and different climates. When the furniture is sitting in your home, the wood continues to move as the seasons change or the pieces move with you to different climates—but you’d never know it. Our furniture is assembled to allow for this movement without affecting its construction.
  1. Crafted by one craftsman with precision and seasoned skill — We do not have assembly lines. The craftsman who makes your furniture onsite will sign and date every masterpiece. Each craftsman takes pride in the personal work that goes into each piece they build—from start to finish. This goes a long way in controlling the overall quality and beauty in your own piece of furniture.
  1. Quality control at multiple points throughout the building process — The initial build of your furniture is by one the craftsman. While being hand stained, each surface of the furniture is checked closely. Final assembly includes hardware and possible lighting. We personally deliver our furniture; this allows us to check it while blanket wrapping it for delivery with one final check at your home while you’re present.
  1. Time tested joinery methods — Our gift to you through our joinery methods is a promise for long-lasting construction. Craftsmen are trained to know the “feel” of a solid joint during assembly.
  1. Durability and life of furniture is taken into account at the design stage before building starts — Each piece is reviewed together by both a designer and a craftsman—and continues throughout the building stage. Our designers enjoy working with you to create your own unique piece for your home.
  1. Maintained temperature and humidity in the wood shop and finishing room — Temperature and humidity levels are taken into consideration throughout the year to keep the wood in a constant stable condition from the building stage, and through to the finishing stage. The wood or furniture never leaves the building between building and finishing. We use humidity control in the building throughout the year.
  1. High grade sanding materials — we use the highest grade of sanding materials to give the perfect surface for receiving a consistent stain. Sanding materials are never overused and our craftsmen have the experience to know when enough sanding is enough.

 

As you can see, a lot of time and care goes into each piece of furniture made here at George’s Furniture. Contact us today or stop by our beautiful showroom!

“Won’t Tip Over” Rocking Chair

“Won’t Tip Over” Rocking Chair

In 1972, when George was young, he tipped his mother’s rocking chair so far back he hit his head! He made it a life goal to create a rocking chair that would not tip. Here at George’s Furniture, our “Won’t Tip Over” Rocking Chair solves this problem!

This rocking chair comes in various sizes and you can even choose the style of arms, woods, and finishes. All of our rocking chairs are the most comfortable chairs you will ever sit in due to their low center of gravity, allowing for a slow and gentle rocking motion. The comfortable contoured seat means no cushion is necessary. The spindle-back style cylindrical bars give plenty of support to your back, ensuring a comfortable and high quality rocking experience.
