The Stanley Furniture Continuum Fret Back Side Chair Amaretto Cherry 816-11-60 is a jaunty traditional-style piece that brings new life to any room you add it. Its angular frame is made from a sturdy combination of cherry hardwood solids and select veneers. The padded seat is upholstered in a pleasant ivory that pairs perfectly with the rich amaretto cherry finish used to protect and emphasize the wood. The chair back features a handsome fret-back design that adds a bit of busyness to the overall design. Sturdy, comfortable, and handsome: everything you're looking for in a side chair.

Stanley Furniture Craftsmanship
Stanley Furniture's main objective is to produce quality and stylish furniture by using the best wood materials, construction procedures, and elegant finishes on their products to help you fashion your home decor the way you imagined. All of their furniture is hand-crafted from quality woods, incorporating other superior materials such as aluminum, glass, plastic, leather, and marble. Every joint is carefully constructed (keeping wood's sensitivity to heat and humidity in mind) allowing for expansion and contraction. All joints are held together with glue and nail.
Stanley's 30-step finishing process starts with an undertone stain that is applied to a hand-sanded piece. Next, the stain is sealed with a wash coat, then hand sanded again with filler applied to pack the wood pores and smooth out the surface. A sealer coat is then applied, the piece is hand sanded again, and hand padded to mellow the tone. From there, a luster glaze is rubbed on by hand, followed by antiquing or distressing also done by hand. Finally, after drying, each piece is hand waxed and rubbed prior to final inspection.
