About Our Cherry Wood:

cherry timber

Cherry has a smooth grain and a strong reddish/brown colour, which deepens fairly quickly. When you first get your cherry bed it may be relatively pale but you’ll find that the colour soon develops and continues to become richer over the years. Small areas of lighter coloured grain sometimes occur and, although cherry is relatively knot-free, small knots or burrs may be present even in the most carefully selected timber – these are part of the natural beauty of wood. We recommend that you don’t place objects on cherry in a fixed position for a long period of time as this can mean the area which has been covered will remain lighter than the rest of the wood, especially in sunlight.

If you are looking to match your cherry bed with current furniture please request a timber sample from us, but please note that wood samples should be taken as indicative of the wood and finish – it is not possible to guarantee an exact colour match.

At Natural Bed Company, for our wooden beds, we only use timber from sustainable sources and never use endangered tropical hardwoods. All our timber is from a legally certified source and purchased under the EUTR (European Union Timber Regulation). Our pine is from Scandinavia and our hardwoods – ash, oak, maple, cherry, walnut and beech are from the USA or northern Europe. Buying timber from managed forests ensures that new trees are planted and the cycle of planting, growth and harvest can continue. We think it is important that the amazing natural resource of timber should be used to make furniture that will last.

Caring for Cherry Furniture:

Unless otherwise specified, our cherry beds are finished in a durable clear soft satin (low sheen) lacquer. This provides an easy to care for and durable finish that doesn’t compromise the natural beauty of the wood grain. We suggest dusting your cherry bed with a dry, soft cloth.

Solid woods may expand and shrink slightly with differences in temperature and humidity. Take care not place your furniture next to radiators or anywhere subject to any excessive changes in temperature or moisture content. If you are using our bedside tables – we recommend that all kitchenware and beverages should be placed on mats and any spillages should be wiped up immediately. Solid cherry furniture may be subject to rough grain protruding from previously smooth surfaces, this is usually caused by humid conditions or a spillage, and is indicative of water being absorbed into the wood and causing the grain to swell.

Cleaning: To clean the wood finish, wipe with a slightly damp cloth and immediately buff with a dry cloth. In the event of more stubborn marks, a solution of mild detergent should be used on the cloth. Silicone based polishes should not be used on the wood as they will build up and leave a sticky residue on the surface.
