AFFORDABLE, SUSTAINABLE, SAFE
The City Dresser is part of our affordable City Collection — we handcraft each piece in our sustainable, FSC® certified (C156318) Los Angeles woodshop from solid, responsibly harvested beechwood. The modern design features simple, yet sophisticated elements like soft-close drawers with rounded and recessed pulls. It’s a stunning piece you’ll love having on display. We give the dresser its natural tones with non-toxic ECOS® wood stains in a brown or clear blonde finish. No nasty, VOC-emitting glues or finishes. Ships fully assembled.
100% SOLID WOOD
No particleboard. No fiberboard. No toxic finishes or stains. We handcraft the City Dresser from 100% solid, sustainably harvested beechwood, an abundant hardwood. A combination of water-based ECOS® stains gives it a dark color similar to walnut, or choose our clear, light finish that will brighten any room. The result is a high-quality, eco-friendly, and affordable piece of furniture.
The City Dresser will look great anywhere. That’s because we individually craft the dresser using the highest quality construction techniques to ensure longevity and durability. The solid wood legs provide sturdy, reliable support and soft close drawers minimize stress on the furniture, prolonging its life and ensuring it endures for years to come.
STUNNING, NON-TOXIC FINISHES
Our eco-friendly finishes enhance the City Dresser’s natural patina — without compromising the planet. We use safe, non-toxic materials that don’t emit nasty VOCs or odors. Select either a rich, dark brown stain or a clear, blonde-hued finish for your City Dresser. Both finishes reveal the rich character of the wood. Sleep better knowing your dresser is non-toxic, made with ECOS® wood stains and Titebond® wood glues, which are safe and produce no harmful fumes.
NO ASSEMBLY REQUIRED
Don’t worry. The City Dresser ships assembled, so all you have to do is find the perfect place for it. That’s it. No tools, craftspeople, or manuals needed.
BETTER FOR YOU AND THE PLANET
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 is commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens, such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our City 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 City Dresser is consistent with healthy, environmentally friendly living.
In 2019, Avocado Green became one of the first Climate Neutral Certified companies, effectively making our business carbon neutral. A year later, we took it a step further by going carbon negative — offsetting more carbon emissions than the company generates. Avocado works with Climate Neutral to reduce its emissions, then we measure and voluntarily offset more than 100% of the rest 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. But we know offsets aren’t enough. That’s why we also advocate for legislation that will mitigate climate change and protect people and the planet.
In 2020, Avocado became the first bedding company to have its Landfill Waste Diversion rated Validated by UL. In 2021, we developed more products made with upcycled materials to further limit our waste. Now, we have an entire line of furniture made with upcycled wood remnants from our Los Angeles facility. By being intentional about our materials and manufacturing, we’ve achieved an overall waste diversion rate of 69%. Our goal is to achieve our Zero Waste to Landfill certification by recycling more than 80% of our waste. Implementing zero-waste practices and reducing our impact is essential if we want to make meaningful strides in the fight against climate change and ensure a better, healthier planet for future generations.
