Wood furnishings are sustainable and environmentally friendly when they’re made from ethically-sourced wood. Ethically and sustainably harvested lumber is fair to the environment and those living nearby: this is why we take care to offer products made with it. All style, no harm.
You may be wondering how to best use wooden pieces in your home. Great places to employ wood furnishings include the den and dining room, and other areas where a little elegance can go a long way.
Color-wise, darker woods create a richness and polish that’s second to none, creating a striking elegance. Lighter woods can be used to create contrast without being too stark, and also play nicely off light.
Wood’s versatility is evident even in a small sample of our offerings:

Keeping wood surfaces brilliant isn’t difficult. Regular dusting and wiping with a damp soft cloth will keep wood surfaces looking their best. You may need to wax and re-oil when the lustre begins to dim, but that shouldn’t be too often.
At Sklar we do our utmost to ensure all the wood furnishings we have are sustainably sourced. It’s a point of pride and one of the ways in which we do our part for the earth. Also, for each wood piece we sell, we donate one tree to the National Forest Foundation.
