One advantage of made-to-order furniture is choice - the ability to pick the wood, species, finish color or a size you need to suit your home. Swartzendruber Furniture Creations gives you the choices you need to furnish your home the way you’ve always dreamed.

The most popular woods (quartersawn oak and cherry) for Prairie and Arts & Crafts furniture are shown below. Choose quartersawn oak in a darker finish for a period look, or go to a lighter color for a softer feel. Natural cherry gives a clean, up-to-date look that gets more beautiful with age.

If you aren’t sure what the difference is between regular and quartersawn oak, take a look at our Oak Primer.

Want something different than what is shown here? Don’t hesitate to ask! We also offer plainsawn red oak, walnut, mahogany and maple, and have entertained requests for woods from around the world. Choose from up to 50 designer stain colors on each wood. We can also create a custom finish color to match existing antiques, the woodwork in your home or furniture from another manufacturer.

You don't have to choose your finish color here. This is just a sampling of the options. We will send you samples when you place your order.
