John Thomas Select
John Thomas Furniture has proudly been crafting the finest solid wood home furnishings since 1979. We believe in and are inherently committed to offering the most beautiful, long-lasting, affordable home furnishings. Our product is made entirely of Parawood, which is part of the maple family. It is valued for its dense grain, minimal shrinkage, attractive light color and ease of finishing. It is also prized as an “environmentally friendly” wood, as it makes use of plantation grown trees that have been cut down at the end of their latex-producing cycle.
John Thomas tables have ball bearing extension glides making for a seamless transition from smaller to larger dining. Gap covers that ensure our table aprons are continuous and allow for minor table expansion due to drastic climate changes. They are crafted with folding leaf hinges that enable table leaves to store flat, apron stabilizers that ensure strength and stability of a table, and self-storing Butterfly Leaf (Leaves) that save space.
John Thomas chairs are built with leg stretchers to ensure the legs do not loosen from the strenuous and everyday use chairs undergo. The leg stretchers are both glued and screwed in place. They are constructed entirely of solid wood (all parts and components). Our custom upholstery seat options are all manufactured in the U.S.
John Thomas finishing uses only high performance, pre-catalyzed sealers/lacquers understanding that you don’t just stand around and look at your furniture – you use it!
