Some things are better when they’re done by hand, and when it comes to maintaining that antique look and feel with your antique furniture, a hand rubbed finish is often the solution. Actually, the first application of oils to the finish of a piece of furniture is a wonderful moment, as a hand rubbed finish instantly enriches the color and enlivens the furniture, creating a depth and beauty that’s difficult to create via other methods.
At Pace Furniture, our hand rubbed finishes are ideal for a wide range of furniture types and materials, and our goal is to help your furniture retain that antique and beautiful look.

What is a Hand Rubbed Finish?
Often, one of the most effective ways to duplicate an antique look is through a hand-rubbed, penetrating oil finish. By rubbing the oil into the furniture’s finish, you’ll give your furniture an enlivened, enriched look, similar to what the antique looked like when it was first created.
In general, a hand-rubbed finish is similar to a polish, as we rub the furniture with fine (or very fine) abrasives, and then buff with lambswool, cloth, or felt as a final step. Although there are several ways to achieve a beautiful hand-rubbed finish, it is essential to remember that a careful, skilled hand is necessary to ensure a perfectly smooth finish. Depending on the furniture and its material, we have several different oils and other finishes to choose among to achieve a slick, eye-catching shine.
