WHY BUY UNFINISHED FURNITURE?
Primarily because the good folks at Unfinished Furniture Expo need to eat. Additionally, we offer higher quality wood furniture than what is typically found in finished item stores (assuming you can still find a brick & mortar store). Factory finishes often conceal defects or blemishes in the wood. At Unfinished Furniture Expo, we understand the difference and are selective about what we sell. Quality wood furniture purchased today can be used and enjoyed for a lifetime.
Another good reason is the consumer can pick any color to match your decor. Finished furniture items from manufacturers can change colors over time, or even from lot to lot. This can make it difficult to match colors when adding new furniture items to your house. At Unfinished Furniture Expo, choosing a matching piece is easy. We carry easy to apply wood stains and clear finishes sold in numerous different wood tones and colors. We also have a full palette of chalk and milk paints. We're ready when you're ready to add a new item to your home. It will look just like the previous pieces you've purchased.
At Unfinished Furniture Expo, you have the largest selection to choose from. Buying from finished furniture manufacturers limits you to the styles they offer. When you buy unfinished furniture, you can mix and match different pieces from different manufacturers. Then stain them the same color assuring that they will all match!

DOES YOUR FURNITURE NEED ASSEMBLY?
In most cases, yes, the items need simple assembly. Some stools, stools, benches, etc do come assembled and will be noted in the descriptions. Instructions and all hardware, etc. will be included in the box. The customer will need to supply simple hand tools and wood glue (recommended).
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO GET MY MERCHANDISE?

WHAT IS PARAWOOD?
Despite common misconceptions, Parawood is not two pieces of wood. However, Parawood serves our world in more than one way beyond its wood. It's a great example of how we can fully utilize a natural resource. Parawood is the tree from which latex is harvested. For twenty-five to thirty years, the Parawood tree is "tapped" (the same manner syrup is obtained from a Maple tree). Beyond this age, The Parawood tree ceases to produce sufficient quantities of latex and is cut for the manufacturing of fine furniture. For every tree cut, a new tree is planted as a replacement, harmoniously maintaining a natural balance.
Now, more than ever, being environmentally conscious and responsible is a part of our lives, business culture, and ethos. Manufacturing processes, waste management, the use of natural resource all affect our world and quality of life.
Unfinished Furniture Expo recognizes that though home furnishings are a necessity, they too can have a positive or negative impact on our environment. For this reason, as well as the physical beauty and quality of Parawood, many of our furniture is proudly crafted from this extremely dense, plantation grown hardwood.
IS THERE PARTICLE BOARD IN ANY OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
NO! Our products consist of solid wood and in some cases, pine or birch plywood in certain bookcases, home office and entertainment pieces. These are used for stability reasons. There is absolutely no particle board in our furniture. Some larger furniture items may contain plywood for added strength (industry standard). NO PARTICLE BOARD is used in any items. If you have any questions regarding a particular item or issue, please call us at 1-800-597-3500 or write at email@example.com and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
IS USING OUR CREDIT CARD ON YOUR SITE SAFE?
More than likely (unless we get cross-ways with the Axis of Evil, then all bets are off). We do not store any of your credit card information (that is all handled by our payment processor Shopify, the best in the biz) and we will never share your personal info with anyone else.
