All About British Traditions
Imagine taking something old and making it new? It would create unique pieces which you would cherish forever. Now, imagine you could take that concept and apply it to furniture!
That's what British Traditions has done. They carefully hand-craft furniture to look like it's an antique! The products they create are each in themselves truly unique and one-of-a-kind. They focus on creating hand-made furniture for you to enjoy. Each piece is hand-made in America by craftsmen who enjoy what they do every day.
Each piece is made of kiln-dried wood and manufactured in a humidity-controlled facility and are constructed with quality in America. Each piece of furniture has the option of many different hand-applied finishing options. This creates more individuality and customization for each piece. The finishing never looks the same on two products.
Finish: "English Pine Light"
This finish is crafted from a pine wood that has been sanded and waxed. The English Pine Light pieces age into a deeper color and the knots in the wood will darken. Periodically, it would be good to wax each piece which will build up over time and give the piece an aged, waxed patina.
Finish: "Galway Crackle"
This finish gives a fine crackle with a subtle distressed look. British Traditions uses an 11-step hand-applied finishing process using a single color over a dark base coat. It focuses on minimal distressing to achieve the antique look.
Each piece is crafted and finished in Missouri, and due hand-made quality, it can often take up to 10 weeks to receive an item. However, when you factor in the quality and the passion in each piece it makes the wait not so bad. You are getting a high quality, made in America piece of furniture that was crafted with two hands, just for YOU!
These handmade items are crafted in many distressed weights and over 25 color options! Shop our collection here.
