Mahogany, oak, and fir are classic examples of wood furnishings often available at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too. The unique qualities of the wood grains are coveted by those who appreciate stain-grade furniture. The scars and patina tell an unspoken story of how these pieces were cared for and traveled from one home to another over time. Run your hand across the surface and imagine the life stories it holds. The wear on pulls and latches indicates a much loved and used piece of furniture that has lived a good life.
Tables and desks offer a surface for everyone in the household to utilize whether gathering for a meal or doing school work or office projects.
Dressers are a staple in virtually every home and have come out of the bedroom and into the kitchen, covered porch and the main entry. Easily one of the most sought after items in any of our stores, when you find the design you like place it on hold. It’s likely to be gone the next day.
For those who live in a loft or industrial building an oversized dresser on locking casters becomes a partition to define an area and can easily be relocated to give a fresh look to a space.
Novelty items are great conversation pieces and can be used in a variety of ways.
Cabinets, sideboards, and wardrobes come in all shapes and sizes and allow for ample storage behind wooden doors. From classic panel doors with brass hardware to decorative pieces with heavy embellishment and trims you’re sure to find something to fit your personal style.
Sideboards once used only in the dining area often find new life by dropping a sink into the top surface and enjoying a very unique vanity for the bath!
Tall wardrobes and cupboards often house the stereo components and the television. It’s always amazing to see these primitive pieces come in store and find yet another home a century later.
Join us every day from 11AM to 6PM and take a moment to search out your favorite wood grain pieces. Be open to viewing furniture with a fresh perspective of how you might use it in an alternative way. With proper care these furnishings will happily serve another century. SHOP SMART. SHOP STARS.
