Hardwood Options

Leaman Interiors offers furniture in a variety of hardwoods, but recommends these top five solid hardwoods. Click a wood species to discover the unique characteristics and strengths that come with each wood type. Only carefully selected North American hardwoods are chosen to build our furniture, and we only use harvesting techniques that are best for the environment.

Brown Maple has become increasingly popular for furniture. Mostly distributed from eastern North America, the Maple wood is a smooth, even grained hardwood. The color is commonly white, with a reddish-brown tint and sometimes even dark gray.
Cherry is a smooth, even-grained hardwood known for its warm, rich, reddish-brown color. Cherry may have some mineral streaks, pitch pockets or sapwood. Cherry mellows or darkens with age from exposure to sunlight, and can also become a deep reddish-brown with a golden luster.
Hickory is one of the strongest and heaviest hardwoods available in the United States. Characterized by extreme contrasts of light and dark wood, hickory naturally creates a dramatic look. It can also be stained for a more even look.
Red Oak is one of the most popular hardwoods for timber production in North America. Red Oak color will vary from pale reddish brown to an almost wheat color. Red Oak is known for its open grain with great strength and durability.
Depending on the way the logs are sawn into timber (rift cut, flat sliced, flat sawn, rotary cut quartered) White Oak can have varying looks. Many distinctive patterns emerge: figure flakes, fine lines, pin stripes, leafy grains and watery figures. Color is light to darker gray brown. White Oak that is quartersawn will produce dramatic rays and flecks or flakes that are popular in Mission style furniture or antiques.
