Ashley company products are finished using lacquer paint. Lacquer is the official name nitrocellulose lacquer, and it is made from nitrifying cotton (nitrocellulose) which is a natural material as the main raw material. As it is made of natural materials like Japanese lacquer, it is easy to familiarize with wood and has a characteristic that taste comes out enough to wear it. In Japan, urethane coating that consumers do not need maintenance is common, as they are generally not aware of the maintenance of furniture in general. On the other hand, natural finishes such as wax and oil finish and lacquer paint are often used in Western countries to make use of wood in modern times. Repeated maintenance such as waxing, deepens the old color and taste called patina, it will change and transform to a more beautiful piece.
Antique processing is given to Ashley's furniture. Wooden products can have scratches and wormholes holes etc. after many years. By painting above the wound of the furniture, the paint accumulates on the scratches and the edges and becomes a dark color, and a unique texture comes out. The Ashley Company applies an antique processing called Distressing (distressing) on antique furniture and this process has been used on new furniture for many years.
