At International Merchants Limited we know how vital it is to pay attention to detail, from manufacture to final finishing. Great pains are taken to ensure that everything fits perfectly, including doors and drawers, irrespective of climatic conditions. Our drawers are made with dovetailed joints and solid wood sides to ensure that they open and close smoothly, using traditional guiders and kickers to run them home-rather than metal runners.
Selection of materials is also important and only the finest timbers and veneers are purchased by experienced buyers, from managed and renewable sources, to ensure that we always make furniture of the highest quality.
International Merchants furniture is hand colored and hand finished to create the variations in shade that enables it sit comfortably alongside original antiques. More than a dozen different processes are involved in the finishing of each piece, including a special lacquer which helps give ‘body’ to the piece. Waxing and burnishing are also an integral part of the finishing, which helps generate the distinctive rich patina that is the hallmark of all our furniture. Our fittings such as hinges, handles and so on are chosen carefully for their durability and good quality.
Our furniture department is experienced and highly competent with a design team at your disposal. Our goal is to render service that exceeds your expectation so our products are exclusive in design and craftmanship. We will be pleased to provide whatever information you need and will be glad to discuss your ideas and designs and make them a realty.
