Every piece made with E&G Amish Furniture is coated with a Catalyzed Varnish to protect the furniture. This catalyzed varnish will protect your new Amish furniture from 150° F and 24 hours of water damage, such as a water ring left from a glass. This varnish is applied to every piece from dining to occasional furniture, and creates a glossy finish, which can be changed to high gloss or matte, depending on the look you want to achieve.
