1. Can I buy direct from you?
a. We do not sell direct. Please contact your local dealer for assistance. If you are unaware of whom your local dealer is, please refer to our Dealer Locator.
2. Why is my cherry a different color than the one I saw in the showroom?
a. Cherry is photosensitive and therefore darkens into a deep rich color with exposure to light. The furniture in the showroom has already been exposed to a mixture of overhead lighting and natural light, so the color has matured. Your furniture will look like that in time, depending on the amount of light it gets.
Photosensitivity affects different wood types in different ways. Explore the Wood Types and Descriptions to know more about how sunlight can affect certain woods.
