Cristo Rey has developed several finish processes that are remarkable for their complexity, high quality and attention to detail. Every piece of our furniture is carefully hand-distressed, sanded and then finished in a multi-step process that includes a top coat of high quality polyurethane lacquer. Originated in Europe, these finishing processes are oriented to bring out the true grain of our knotty alder wood. The end result is a beautifully finished, heirloom quality piece of furniture with a unique character and an unmistakable hand-made touch.
The following are sample images of the finishes that are available for our collections:
Alder / Mesquite Combination
Alder / Beerwood Combination
*Please Note: The images of the finishes are photographic representations and are intended for reference only. An actual finish sample should be reviewed prior to final selection. Please contact your regional sales representative or our Customer Service department to order finish samples or to arrange for a private viewing. In addition, please take on account that finishes may appear different in a wood sample than in a complete piece of furniture. Our products are hand made of natural solid wood. Thus, reasonable distressing, color and tone variations are common and should not be considered as product defects. On the contrary, it is those slight variations that make each piece of Cristo Rey furniture completely unique.
