Keep things simple and stylish with the International Concepts 3-Tier Mission Shelf Unit. This quaint bookshelf's clean lines and warm feel are sure to add a homey touch to your office or living area. This unit features one fixed shelf and two adjustable shelves perfect for housing your favorite classic novels or how-to books, and is impeccably crafted in Mission style from unfinished parawood.
Parawood is actually the wood from rubber-producing trees in South America and Thailand. Prized for its beautiful natural color, dense grain, and minimum shrinkage, parawood is often the wood of choice for high-end furniture. It is also considered an environmentally friendly wood, as it makes use of trees that have been cut down once their latex production has reached the end of its cycle.
The finish options on this shelf unit are only limited by your imagination. Leave it unfinished for a rustic, natural look, stain it or paint it to match your decor, or use your artistic talents to create something unique. Parawood takes finishes exceptionally well, and can easily be made to resemble rosewood, oak, or other distinctive woods for a very expensive look. No matter what you choose, you can't go wrong with this beautiful, durable, and functional accent piece.
