Hi, I’m Tor, furniture finish designer at
Pottery Barn. Pottery Barn starts with responsibly harvested
wood for each piece of furniture.
Our finishes are custom blended by hand. To achieve the utmost clarity and depth,
we slowly build the color of the finish in multiple layers.
This allows for more grain clarity and richness. Our painted finishes are inspired by
found objects from around the world. The finishes are artistically crafted using
multiple layering techniques of hand distressing, burnished raw edges, texture and glazing
to create a warm, vintage patina.
