Solid cherry wood furniture, made in France

French wild cherry furniture

The wild cherry is a tree found in Europe, the Caucasus and Western Asia, where it grows spontaneously. Its other names are bird cherry or wild cherry.  It is a highly prized wood, especially for cabinetmaking, but also for stair railings and pipe stoves. Its grain is very delicate, with varying shades of gray and pink. Its grain is very fine. Used extensively in the manufacture of cherrywood furniture, it is now associated with a brown wood characteristic of the shade used to finish Louis Philippe or Louis XVI Directoire furniture. 

This wood is naturally light in color. This allows lighter, lighter shades to be applied to modern cherrywood furniture in a very contemporary style, very different from antique cherrywood furniture. 

Maison GONTIER produces its solid cherrywood furniture exclusively with wood from French sustainably managed forests via PEFC-certified sawmills.  You can customize the finish of our cherrywood furniture with the shades on our digital color chart, or suggest special shades.
