The Hooker Furniture Archivist 5 Drawer Media Chest may look like it's steeped in old-world tradition, but this piece has a design that's all about your modern needs. The body is crafted from solid rubberwood with pecan veneers under a pecan finish. The five-drawer design gives you a flip-up drawer on the top-left side that's got rear-access, making it ideal for AV components. The top right drawer is felt-lined for more delicate objects. The lower three drawer each offer removable dividers. The bottom drawer is also felt-lined to help protect your belongings from nibbling insects. The design maintains a classic style with flush drawer-faces, vintage-style pulls, and tall, lathe-turned feet. Choose from available finish options to make it yours.
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.
