Stash your stuff in the eco-friendly Windsor 7 Drawer Dresser. This contemporary solid hardwood dresser comes in your choice of lovely finishes, each completed with a high-build, five step finishing process. This process assures you a rich, long-lasting, and durable finish for years to come. The solid hardwood used to construct the dresser comes from the Rubber Tree, which is used to produce latex as well as high-end furniture. Once the tree reaches the end of its latex producing days, it is replaced with a seedling and the older tree is used to manufacture quality furniture and other goods. This type of wood is valued for its dense grain, durability, naturally attractive coloration, and its ability to accept a variety of different finishes. The dresser comes with seven drawers and a two drawer cabinet, as well as an optional mirror.
About Atlantic Furniture
Founded in 1983 as Watercraft, Inc., Atlantic Furniture started as a manufacturer of pine waterbed frames. Since then, the Springfield, Mass.-based company has expanded to Fontana, Calif. The company has moved away from the use of pine and now specializes in imported furniture made of the wood of rubber trees.
The Benefits of Eco-Friendly 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.
Atlantic's Unique Five-Step Finishing Process
Each product in the entire line is finished with a high-build, five-step finishing process. After a thorough sanding, a wipe-on sealer is applied, followed by a tinted sealer to even the grain and color of the wood. Additional sanding prepares the surface for the first base color coat, more sanding, and a second base color coat. After a final sanding, the finish coat is applied. This process produces a beautiful and durable finish that will last for years.
