The phrase "curio cabinet" comes from a shortened form of the word curiosity. The Tribeca Loft Cherry Double-Pedestal Executive Desk by Kathy Ireland is the perfect place for all the curious things you have laying around the home office. This desk features two glass "bookend" cases for displaying anything from rare books to autographed baseballs. The double pedestal provides six drawers in two different types, each with a different function. The top two drawers on both sides are utility drawers, with dividers for small office supplies like staplers. The bottom two drawers are lockable vertical files for your important documents. The middle pencil drawer can be converted to a keyboard drawer. The drawers have superior-level construction with ball bearing glides and strong joint connection that can accommodate 50-pound loads. The desk is made of cherry/elm wood solids, a combination of cherry and elm; and cherry veneers, a thin layer of cherry attached to a stronger "mixed" piece of wood for strength and durability.

To care for your furniture, wipe with a soft dry cloth. Microfiber cloths are recommended. To remove fingerprints and other residue, we advise that you use EcoLab's Endust. To reduce residual finish odors when new, lemon-scented Pledge by SC Johnson is recommended. Both Endust and lemon-scented Pledge could be found at local drug stores. We also advise that you spray these cleaning products onto the cloth that you will use to wipe the furniture. It is best not to spray the cleaner directly on the finish. Use coasters to protect the surface from liquids. If your furniture becomes scratched or marred, furniture touchup pencils, which come in a variety of colors, are available in most hardware stores and can be used to repair minor scratches. Avoid placing furniture directly near heat or air-conditioning outlets. Exposure to extreme temperature variations can damage any fine wood furniture, including variations caused by humidifiers, heat vents, and fireplaces.
