Nearly all fine wood furniture is constructed with veneer wood species over a solid hardwood underlying base. Wood veneers are not to be constructed as an inferior construction method, as veneers add significantly to the appearance and durability of the finished product. Veneers have long been used in fine furniture making and are stronger and more durable than solid wood. By resisting shrinking, swelling, warping, and cracking due to humidity and other environmental changes they create a stable finished surface. Many of the exquisite surface grain patterns found on high end furniture would not be possible without the use of veneers. High quality cabinetry construction details are still joined with the centuries old mortise and tenon method, which securely fastens pieces of wood, creating a stronger joint for lasting stability. Doors and drawers are constructed with a precise, tight fit to prevent gaps and sagging, enhancing their appearance and structural strenght.
This is a pre-fabricated coiled spring unit that is made into a single piece tied together with wire of varying gauges, and then dropped into the seating area of the sofa, loveseat, chair, or sectional frame. This is a faster and less expensive construction method than eight-way hand tying, but since it uses vertical helical coils, it offers some of the same quality features. The sinuous coil seat construction method is designed with regularly spaced sinuos wire attached to the front and back frame of the upholstered furniture, and then each unit of wire spring is tied together horizontally. This is the fastest and cheapest method of seat construction.
