What is your furniture made of?
Amisco is proud to use high quality North American steel, fashioned in Canada and painted with lead-free paint. We use birch, walnut and ash from North American forests to produce our components and tabletops. Our seats are upholstered with high-density polyurethane foam to provide the perfect comfort and durability for many years of intensive use. The seats have a 3/4 po plywood structure meeting CARB formaldehyde emission limits. All our chairs and stools have extremely durable nylon glides, which are suitable for most floor coverings.
Are the Amisco products assembled?
At delivery, all Amisco products will be assembled except for the table bases that will be delivered separated from their tabletops.

What are the characteristics of the 51 Harley metal finish?
The inherent characteristics of this finish allow the darkening of the construction welds and seams to show through, which makes each piece truly unique.
A) Color variations: Paint thickness variation is inherent to our paint application process. The differences in paint thickness cause color variations, which may vary from a light copper tint to a dark brown on the same product. These color changes provide to this finish a warm and unique look.
B) Visible welds: When welding, metal heats up and darkens. Dark spots may be visible around welds, as well as on the face of a sheet metal part opposite to a weld.
C) Weld seam along tubes: A continuous black line may appear along a tube. This is the area where the steel was welded to become a tube. The tube weld seam may appear on any given face of a tube or of a product.
D) Zinc components: Some products have zinc decorative components. Zinc parts are generally of a lighter color than the rest of the steel product.
