Handcrafted in Lancaster County
LuxWood finishes are created with both beauty and longevity in mind. Our furniture undergoes a minimum of a 6 step finishing process that allows the natural splendor of the wood to shine through while protecting it from scuffs, dents, moisture, and household chemicals. Our finish choices allow you to create anything from a clear, natural wood look to a one-of-a-kind weathered heirloom appearance.
These artful combinations of durable finishing and authentic hand craftmanship create beautiful aged-looking finishes. Each of our distressed finishes begins with one of our standard stain colors. It is accented with a variety of character effects and complimented by a hand-rubbed glaze in a flat sheen topcoat. Different looks are achieved by combining various effects. See the effects listed below and on the next page to choose between the Standard or Old World Distressing.
