How to Choose the Right Distressing and Finish Style for Your Furniture

March Legend furniture has a distinct, distressed appearance that adds character to any space. But what exactly does "distressed" mean? And what options does March Legend offer? In this blog post, we'll take a closer look.

Distressing is a technique that's used to give furniture an aged look. It involves creating intentional wear and tear that mimics the natural aging process. March Legend offers three different levels of distressing, each with its unique look.

The first option is Spring, which features light distressing. This means that the furniture will have some wormholes, dings, and light rub through around the edges. The Spring option is perfect if you want a subtle, understated look. It's ideal for those who want to add a touch of character to their home without going overboard.

The second option is Summer, which features medium distressing. This means the furniture will have ample wormholes, dings, and medium rub through all over. The Summer option is more dramatic than the Spring option but still not overwhelming. It's perfect if you want a rustic look that's still refined.

Finally, there's the No Distressing option. This means that the furniture won't have any added distressing but will show the natural characteristics of the wood and grain. The No Distressing option is ideal for those who want a more natural look. It's perfect for those who want to showcase the beauty of the wood without any added embellishments.

When choosing a distressing option, it's important to consider the overall aesthetic of your home. If you have a more modern, minimalist style, go with the Spring option. The Summer option might be better if you have a more traditional, rustic style. And if you want a more natural look, the No Distressing option is the way to go.

In addition to the distressing options, March Legend also offers a variety of finish styles for their furniture. These finishes allow you to customize your furniture to fit your style and home decor. Let's look closer at the different finish styles offered by March Legend.

1. Classic Finish- The Classic furniture finish is a timeless and elegant way to add character to any room. This finish is achieved through careful hand rubbing, which gives the furniture a beautiful, aged appearance.
