If having a French Revolution every few centuries is what it takes to get fine antique pieces like the Elite Vintage Boutique 8 Drawer Dresser, well, we may be open to negotiation. Crafted with design elements that hearken back to Louie Phillipe, this dresser starts with a hardwood body that's given a tone-on-tone finish that combines classic white with a gentle texture to create the look and feel of a real antique. Each smooth-pulling drawer has a dustproof construction and a crystal-like pull that is complemented by the carved details on each drawer face. Two smaller drawers sit at the top, giving you an ideal place for your more precious items. Cabriole legs and a curved apron continue the timeless style all the way down to the floor. For a more complete bedroom, try adding the optional mirror to the top of this wide dresser. The same solid construction and authentic finish are used to create a tall frame that protects a beveled mirror.
What makes this collection elite: The Lea Industries Elite Collections are crafted from high quality materials usually associated with more expensive, heirloom quality furniture. Pattern veneers, inlays, and matched veneer drawer fronts are a few characters that set these collections apart from the rest. The multi-step finishing process begins with hand-selected veneers and involves as many as seven different spray applications and as many as eight additional hand applications. Together, these layers create a high-luster finish that accentuates the wood veneers. All finishes are lead-free, child-safe, and meet US safety requirements.
Solid case construction: Each case in Lea's Elite Collections is constructed with a hardwood frame for extra durability. Protective panels between each drawer help keep clothes dust free. Back panels are recessed and attached by screws, which provides more strength and structural integrity than stapled-on back panels. Anti-tip restraint kits secure the case to the wall to prevent tipping. They are included with all cases 30 inches tall or taller.
Superior drawer construction: Elite Collections case pieces have drawers of exceptional strength and durability. All of the drawers feature traditional English dovetail construction on drawer fronts and drawer backs, providing more strength and durability than commonly used French dovetail or box joints. Drawer parts are hand-sanded and finished with a stained, protective top coat to create a smooth, snag-free interior. Drawer bottoms are reinforced by corner blocks and center rails for greater stability.
The drawers operate smoothly on full-extension drawer guides with steel ball bearings that provide easy, one-handed operation and greater drawer stability than standard center-mounted drawer guides. Because the drawers extend completely out of the case, you have easier access to the contents of the drawer - even way in the back. Automatic drawer stops prevent drawers from falling out of the case. Select drawers include special features, such as aromatic cedar bottoms or removable drawer dividers to help organize drawer contents.
