Mission Concepts Refinishes Furniture

History

As craftsmen of fine replications from the American Arts & Crafts movement, we are keen students of the historically correct way to design, construct and finish our Mission furniture. Original pieces from this period are still in use…100 years later! You can be certain that any piece of furniture from Mission Concepts Inc will last well into the century.

Every piece is made of the finest hand-selected Quarter-sawn White Oak and incorporates the most durable construction method known to fine woodworking – mortise and tenon joinery (cherry and mahogany  also available). All through-tenons are pinned with oak dowels to ensure that the joint will never weaken. After hand-sanding and assembly, the furniture is carefully inspected to ensure our highest quality, branded with our logo, and then moved on to the finish department where stain is applied. Our craftsmen will remove stain in certain places to simulate the wear patterns that develop over a long period of time (as on the arm of a chair where your hand will continuously, and lovingly, rub the wood). Once the color is perfected, it is sealed with orange shellac, and finally finished with a coat of hand-rubbed, pigmented paste wax. The effect of our aging process is subtle, but the result is a beautiful piece of  furniture that blends perfectly with fine antiques as well as contemporary furnishings. More durable version of heirloom finish is also available, called “Premiere.”

We offer solid hand hammered copper hardware and cast metal hardware. Office furniture drawers are all equipped with stainless steel ball bearing slides. The spring units used in our seating have hand-tied springs. We use the finest “Grade A” leather both “naked” and “finished”. Naked leather does not have the top coat of pigmentation added that gives many leathers a shiny finish.

From construction methods to materials used, from staining techniques to hardware, every step is taken to ensure that each piece of furniture we make will live up to the wonderful standards set during the Arts and Crafts period and provide you, our customer, with something that will become a cherished heirloom for generations to come. Enjoy!
