DRC Presents: Carefree Finishes with Hooker.

Long ago, women put bandanas on their heads, took their carpets out of doors, and beat the dust of the winter into the fresh spring air. That image is long gone–thank goodness! We love the scene in the film Brighton Beach Memoirs where the mother of the house is constantly polishing her mother’s dining room table. It was the 1930s and the chore is done with pride and love. But we’d bet anything she’d be just as happy enjoying a sunny afternoon on the porch enjoying the fresh ocean breezes!

Some of us, however, have the desire to make home a happier place in spring and summer embedded in our DNA. Fortunately, housekeeping in this age of vastly improved, sophisticated furniture finishes and environmentally friendly products is more a joy than a chore.

What makes a more carefree furniture finish? At Hooker Furniture, the age-old dedication of making beautiful furniture is still employed–but with new methods to make finishes much easier to take care of, and innovative construction techniques that keep moisture and temperature changes from affecting furniture. Style and beauty is now married to know-how, and the result is a home that shines bright without hours of drudgery. That leaves us with time to enjoy the ambiance of home and the company of family and friends.

Hooker Furniture finishes receive two to three coats of lacquer for extra depth and long-lasting durability. In this process, the sheen (or, gloss) varies from a high gloss to low sheen, depending on the design of the collection.  Of course, this doesn’t mean that some home care isn’t required. But with some prudent measures, your furniture will be beautiful for years and years.
