All Shãka Studios furniture is finished with professional grade finishing materials. We have spent the past 15 years perfecting our unique proprietary finishing techniques.

ShaKa Studios finishes are museum quality, and “a finish unlike any I have ever seen,” as one client extoled. Our finishes are extremely durable while emitting a feeling of warmth and subtleness. This gives each furniture piece its’ artistic balance and unique personality. There are a wide variety of colors, combinations, and options to choose from, and each piece is tailored to your personality to give you that one of kind piece that was made just for you.

All swatches are photographed and have been edited to show detail. Computer monitors vary, therefor we highly recommend ordering finish samples prior to placing your bed or TV console order.

Finish samples are available for $5/swatch and may be returned for merchandise credit within 30 days. All physical samples that are ordered will be shipped out within seven business days. Custom samples are made to order and may take longer. When reviewing your sample please keep in mind that wood is a natural material, slight variations occur in texture, color, grain configuration and stain acceptance. Because of this, we are unable to guarantee the finishes will be an exact 100% match.

ShaKa Studios Finish Definitions

Crackled Finishes
Crackled finishes are intuitively and lightly crackled to give that worn aged look of paint shrinkage and separation. We do not over crackle our furniture; we only apply crackle in areas of the furniture that would naturally crackle over time. Some color pigments crackle better than others. Lighter colors will crackle easier and larger, whereas darker color will crackle smaller.

Distressed Finishes
If crackle isn’t your thing, then our standard distressed finish is for you. Layers of paint are intuitively distressed, aged, then top-coated with rubbed effect lacquer to give a soft hand plus the strength of lacquer.

Distressed Stains
If you are looking for that worn, aged look in a stain finish then a distressed stain finish is for you. We intuitively distress each piece using a medieval-like tool that we have developed for this particular use. Doing a little banging here and there and some distress sanding, plus a little glazing and shading, we are able to give new wood the warm natural look of aged wood.

Premium Stains
Premium stain finishes have no distressing of any kind. They are considered premium because of the time consuming prep work that is involved, and the eye to detail that they demands. Premium finishes are best on hardwood furniture items like our cherry beds, or solid maple mid-century modern media center.

Premium Painted Finishes
If you wish to have a solid color painted piece, such as a solid kettle black cannonball bed, or a solid white pencil post bed, then a solid color Premium Painted finish is a good option for you. Just like the premium stain finishes, there is time consuming prep work involved and a keen-eye to detail demanded. There is also a 7 to 10 day curing time due to the layers upon layers of finishing materials that are applied.

We hope this will give you the information and options that you need to pick the finish that is right for you. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to convo or call us at 281-826-2337.

Our Mission is to offer a wide range of artistic goods that are in balance with nature, body and our souls. Not just for the here and now, but for the past, present and future.

We sincerely hope you enjoy all that ShãKa Studios has to offer.
