The Acme Furniture Carine 7 Drawer Dresser with Optional Mirror's bright champagne finish, shimmery front panels, and mirror inlaid accents add a touch of glam to the dresser's transitional style. The dresser has seven drawers - three smaller ones and four larger - to keep all of your clothes and accessories organized. English dovetails, center metal glides, and safety stops ensure these drawers will function smoothly. Add on the optional matching mirror to make it even easier to get ready in the mornings. Both pieces, mirror and dresser, are constructed from a combination of rubberwood, acrylic, and engineered wood to make this dresser is as durable as it is chic.
The Beauty and Benefits of Rubberwood: Prized as an "environmentally friendly" wood, rubberwood makes use of trees that have been cut down at the end of their latex-producing life cycle. The trees are removed by hand and replaced with new seedlings. In the past, felled rubber trees were either burned on the spot or used as fuel for locomotive engines, brick firing, or latex curing. Now the wood is used in the manufacture of high-end furniture. It is valued for its dense grain, stability, attractive color, and acceptance of different finishes.
A note about wood composite or engineered wood: Often referred to as MDF which stands for medium-density fiberboard, this type of wood composite is made of compressed wood fibers and has several benefits, including affordability, consistency, and resistance to warping or rotting over time.
