The life of a piece of upholstered furniture begins with its frame, and the type of wood used will have a bearing on the quality of the final product. We use Beech as the tight graining allows for pegs, screws and tacks to be set securely.
The wood must then be assembled into a sturdy frame – the more rigid the frame, the better. Joints are where one piece of frame wood intersects to another part of the frame at an angle. This must be reinforced with blocks or dowels for extra support to prevent loosening over time.
