2-Drawer Le Inspiration Script ChestItem#: HN-HOOK1006
The 2-Drawer Le Inspiration Script Chest knows you. Inspiring adjectives describe you: witty, vibrant, bold, romantic - all in French - applied with an elegant hand across the entire chest. Scrolling drawer pulls match the graceful curves. The body has two drawers with compound curves, constructed of extra-strong engineered hardwoods with an impressive veneer that has a silky-smooth antiqued ivory finish. Cabriole legs stand graceful as a dancer. The interior is finished as well, a sign of the best quality craftsmanship. Perhaps it is too beautiful for words.

Construction of Hooker Furniture
Hooker Furniture chooses solid woods and select wood veneers over wood frames to construct their high-quality pieces. By using wood veneer, pieces can be given a decorative look that can't be achieved with the use of solid wood alone. The veneers add beautiful accents of color and design to the pieces, and are placed over engineered wood product for strength. All Hooker wood veneers are made from renewable resources and are located primarily on the flat surfaces of the furniture, such as the case tops and sides.
Each Hooker furniture piece is finished using up to 30 different steps, including 13 steps of hand-sanding and accenting. Physical distressing is done by hand. Pieces receive two to three coats of solid lacquer to create extra depth and add durability to the finish. Each case frame is assembled using strong mortise-and-tenon joints, which are then reinforced by mechanical fasteners and glue. On most designs, end panels extend to the floor to add strength and stability. Panel-style furniture features strong panel and frame construction to help avoid warping.
Your Hooker furniture features finished case interiors to eliminate unsightly "raw wood" and to help protect items you may store inside drawers or cabinets. Drawer parts are given a urethane or lacquer finish to create smooth action and durability. All drawers use dovetails, either English or French, for years of problem-free use. Drawer bottoms are constructed from plywood and attached to the plywood drawer sides via the use of hot glue and/or wood glue blocks. Most drawers are full width, depth, and height to provide the maximum amount of storage space.
