What is The fiber used in the Pillows/Beds/Bedding Made of?
StaminaFibre is a proprietary blend of polyethylene and polypropylene, which is then processed through our custom-made Hammermill machine which gives StaminaFibre the feel and performance of Down.

Many factors influence our sleep but two of the most important factors are what we rest our heads on and what we cover ourselves with. A pillow must be soft, yet provide adequate support for the head and neck; and a duvet must be light, yet warm. Many people seem to think that this kind of comfort is only possible with down.
From within, our fibre bridges the comfort gap between natural and synthetic, creating innovative and comfortable solutions for bedding, body support, decorative pillows and upholstery cushions.

How are the frames made?
An Engineered inter-lock frame is used. Structural strength is a must so this style of frame has vertical part construction, solid side panels, modulus of elasticity, minimum number of joints which decreases joint failure, I-Beam construction, oriented stran board with extra strength made exclusively with hardwoods. As well the frames had temperature variance to help eliminate problems that can occur with temperature and humidity change, no warping, bowing, twisting and splitting.
What kind of springs and coil are used in the furniture?
Our standard seating is made up of heavy gauge no sag springs. Each spring is spaced no more than 4" apart and linked together laterally so they work in concert to provide a consistent seat. To ensure an even seating at the edges of the sofa we use 2 heavier gauge springs spaced 2" apart.
For the ultimate in long lasting comfort we offer the traditional eight way hand tied web & coil seating. In this time honoured method, heavy duty coil springs are tied by hand in a web with eight knots per spring linking each spring to the next. This method relieves stress on critical points in the frame ensuring unrivaled quality comfort and longevity.
Are your pieces made when ordered?
All of our furniture is bench made and each piece of furniture is upholstered by the hands of one artisan from start to completion. Our craftsmen work on one piece at a time and take great pride in their work. Fine upholstery is an art form that is developed and acquired over years of training and experience. Much like a well tailored suit, fine upholstery is in the finer details and can only be appreciated by discerning eyes.
