Early mid-century furniture shines when space is at a premium, which makes the Stanley Furniture Vintage 5 Drawer Chest a clever beauty. Its tall, narrow design doesn't require much space, yet offers five deep drawers for ample storage. As beautiful as it is functional, this chest features softly rounded corners, a visually appealing breakfront design, and solid brass knobs with an antiqued finish and coining detail. Crafted to be an heirloom piece, this chest is made of mahogany solids and knotty cherry veneers in a hand-rubbed vintage cherry finish.
Stanley Furniture Craftsmanship
Stanley Furniture's main objective is to produce quality and stylish furniture by using the best wood materials, construction procedures, and elegant finishes on their products to help you fashion your home decor the way you imagined. All of their furniture is hand-crafted from quality woods, incorporating other superior materials such as aluminum, glass, plastic, leather, and marble. Every joint is carefully constructed (keeping wood's sensitivity to heat and humidity in mind) allowing for expansion and contraction. All joints are held together with glue and nail.
Stanley's 30-step finishing process starts with an undertone stain that is applied to a hand-sanded piece. Next, the stain is sealed with a wash coat, then hand sanded again with filler applied to pack the wood pores and smooth out the surface. A sealer coat is then applied, the piece is hand sanded again, and hand padded to mellow the tone. From there, a luster glaze is rubbed on by hand, followed by antiquing or distressing also done by hand. Finally, after drying, each piece is hand waxed and rubbed prior to final inspection.
