All of the work that John Strauss Furniture Design, Ltd. manufactures utilizes the best that modern technology has to offer with the traditional jointery and finishing skills that are necessary to craft heirloom quality furniture.
John works with several craftspeople in an atelier to produce the kind of works of art that cannot be found from a factory made furniture company or in those shipped from overseas. These works, made here in the United States, are created uniquely and in limited editions which insures that each piece gets individual attention. The finished piece is marked with a brand heated by fire of the John Strauss Furniture Design logo and dated to insure its value and origin for years to come.
Much of the solid wood that John Strauss Furniture Design uses comes from the Appalachian Hardwood Forest near the Amish region close by John's Ohio Workshop. Passing horse-drawn carriages on his way back to the studio with kiln-dried lumber to create timeless works of furniture is a secret pleasure of the trade in his part of the State.
John has worked with a Midwest veneer manufacturer for years to insure that all of the wood used in Strauss' pieces are of the highest quality and have the most interesting grain characteristics. Real wood veneer is a fine product that has been used in high-end furniture for ages. 21st Century glues and pressing methods are the main improvements on this time-honored tradition that was also used extensively during the Louis XVth period.
Another aspect of utilizing veneer is its "sustainable" nature: many different pieces of furniture can be created from one tree, saving forests. When man-made substrates are used with veneer to insure the stability of the product, these panels are made from SCS and EPP certified 100% recovered and recycled wood fiber content. This material is also SCS and EPP certified to not contain any added formaldehyde and meets approvals for LEED buildings. Attention to our environment is an important part of what John Strauss Furniture does.
All of the finishes used in the manufacture of these fine pieces of furniture meet the highest industry standards for VOC's emissions. You can appreciate the sanity feel and smooth appearance of the furniture without any concerns for y ou interior environment.
