“A family business is always personal. When my mother, father, and I make decisions about Saloom Furniture it is with the understanding that we are shaping and cultivating the relationships we have with other people across the country that share our passion for design, quality, and customization. We are a small company located in the hardwood forests of central Massachusetts. Over the last three decades we have created a home here, not only for ourselves but for our craftsmen and women, and for creative freedom. Our designs come from the imagination of Peter F Saloom, my father and the founder of this company. It’s no secret that his design work stands out in a market that can be painfully homogeneous at times. It’s the extra experimentation we are willing to undergo that gives us this edge, the extra prototype, the final nuanced alterations. These are the values that make Saloom such a unique entity in the American furniture manufacturing industry. This is what gives us great pride.”

The biggest problems with solid wood furniture are caused by moisture moving in and out of the wood. A full envelope finish provides comprehensive moisture control, perfect for our ever changing Canadian climate, and keeps these issues to a minimum.
A catalyzed conversion varnish top coat contains more solids than a catalyzed lacquer resulting in a finish with better resistance to water, chemicals, and scratches.
Brass leaf pins and receptacles insure precision alignment of table halves and leaves. The leaf gap covers give a clean appearance with no empty gaps in the table apron.
Solid wood table slides provide ease in opening and closing of extension tables. Pedestal tables feature reciprocating double geared slides.
Mortise and tenon joints with locking grooves corner blocks are used on all chair joints. These joints are super strong and long lasting as there are no screws to come loose.
The seat cushion sits atop a strong layer of suspension webbing instead of a plywood board. This keeps the seat soft and comfortable no matter how long dinner lasts.
