The Eco Wood Dresser is part of our Eco Wood Collection. It proudly features reclaimed wood, eco-friendly materials, and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Handmade in our Los Angeles facility (yes, just like our Green and Vegan mattress), our Eco Wood Dresser includes easy to open drawers, so no handles or knobs are needed. The clean, modern lines of the design allow the character of the reclaimed wood to shine. Complete the look with our Eco Wood Bed Frame and Eco Wood End Tables. Consistent with our broader company mission, we handcraft our furniture to meet the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.
Solid Douglas Fir is "rescued" from local sources in California, with all of its rich character, blemishes, and nail holes carefully smoothed and plainly on display. We do not use MDF or particle board. The result is a substantial, heirloom-quality piece of furniture that is enhanced, never diminished, with life's little dings and scratches.
Every detail of the Eco Wood Collection has been thoughtfully considered. The solid wood dressers are constructed using the highest quality construction techniques to ensure their longevity and durability. The hand-finished backs demonstrate quality woodworking from every angle. And the solid wood drawers and metal drawer slides have capacity and strength.
There’s no need to secure the dresser to the wall; the low profile of the Eco Wood Dresser helps it stay firmly set on the floor and reduces the risk of toppling over.
Furniture paints and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution because they emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds). In fact, the Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and particle board that are commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens, such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our Eco Wood Dresser is GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions and Formaldehyde Free certified by UL Environment. That means the dresser is scientifically proven to meet some of the world's most rigorous, third-party emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as VOCs, formaldehyde, and phthalates.
As members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest assured that our Eco Wood Dresser is consistent with healthy, environmental-friendly living.
The reclaimed wood used in our Eco Dresser is solid, beautiful and unique, sourced from local sources in California. No trees are harmed in the manufacturing of our furniture, which in turn, helps to protect our natural resources, reduce waste (through reuse and by building quality products that last) and promote sustainability.
We use reclaimed wood from buildings constructed 50 to 100 years ago. These dense-grain, old-growth woods are harder and more durable than softer new woods. When sealed with a zero-VOC wood stain, the resulting color range of each piece is unique, as shown here. Note: we do our best to match the colors when furniture pieces are ordered together, but can not guarantee any consistency when reclaimed furniture pieces are ordered separately. Variances are to be expected, but that is part of the charm.
Because no trees are cut down or transported to a mill, wood waste from building is diverted from landfills. This also reduces emissions associated with the logging, transport, and processing of new wood, while helping to safeguard our natural resources. All the wood we use is certified FSC® C156318. The use of reclaimed wood can earn points toward the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program — a nationally recognized rating system for sustainable building by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
Dimensions & Weights
Shipping & Delivery
Our Eco Wood Dresser is handmade in our FSC® C156318 woodshop in Los Angeles. The dresser will ship fully assembled. White glove delivery and in-home setup is included within the continental United States only. Furniture is not currently available to ship to Alaska and Hawaii. Our shipping provider will contact you directly to schedule your delivery. At this time, furniture and mattress and/or bedding orders can not be coordinated to arrive at the same time.
Solid Wood Construction
Reclaimed (upcycled) solid vintage wood — much of it from old-growth Douglas fir forests in Western North America — is sourced locally from the greater Los Angeles area, where it has been seasoned for decades. Wood previously chemically treated is never used. All of the wood we use will exhibit the character of vintage wood, to include smoothed nail holes, natural patina, fine cracks, and other weathering.
We do not use traditional lacquers or varnishes. These typically contain harsh chemicals and have strong chemicals that can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Instead, our dressers use a zero-VOC ECOS® wood stain, which is organic, non-toxic and odor-free. It conforms to CDPH 01350 (VOC emissions test taken at 11, 12, & 14 days for classroom and office use), as well ASTMD-4236, specifically concerning oral toxicity, skin irritation and respiratory effects.
Safe, Odorless Glues
Our assembly utilizes Titebond® wood glues, which are safe and produce no harmful fumes. They meet the requirements of ASTM D4236 for safe use with arts and crafts and have both been approved for indirect food contact.
Carbon Negative Production & Shipping
Avocado is a carbon negative business. That means we voluntarily offset more than 100% of our emissions, from resource extraction to shipping, by supporting carbon offset projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
Learn More About Our Carbon Negative Initiatives
We operate an FSC® C156318 certified woodshop — in a facility completely separate from our mattress factory, in Los Angeles — which produces wood dust. Read California's required Proposition 65 warning for wood dust.
Return Policy & Warranty
Furniture cannot be returned, except when there are defects in workmanship, which are covered by a 10-year warranty. Keep in mind that reclaimed wood products will feature blemishes, holes, or other scars in the wood as testimony to its age, character, and singular beauty. Please note that reclaimed wood has inherent color variations. If you purchased a reclaimed wood product in the past, it is unlikely to be an exact match of a newer item. That said, all reclaimed wood furniture on the same order will match.
