Our Malibu Wood Dresser is uncompromising. We use sustainably-harvested maple and matte-gold handles to build the four-drawer dresser. Maple’s natural patina delivers a warm, elegant beauty. The hardwood is also incredibly durable, eco-friendly, and resilient. Our craftsmanship includes soft-close drawers and dovetail joints that provide exceptional quality and strength. We build it all in our facility in Los Angeles, where we marry traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology. No nasty, VOC-emitting (volatile organic compound) glues or finishes — we build the Malibu Dresser with the greater sustainability mission powering Avocado Green Brands at its forefront. The shop’s FSC®-certification validates that we meet the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility. Free delivery and in-home setup included.
Because of its abundance and shorter life span, maple is one of the most sustainable timbers. It’s also extremely durable and long-lasting, because it’s a hardwood. Our timber, like all our forest products, is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (C156318). The authority on forest certification, the independent nonprofit has 25 years of sustainable forest management experience. An FSC®-certified company manages forests in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring it sustains economic viability.
We consider every detail in the Malibu Wood Dresser. From the high-quality birchwood soft-close drawers to the dovetail joints that add durability and strength, our sturdy, real wood dresser is both elegant and exceptionally well-made — a true heirloom that will last generations. We don’t mass produce these dressers — they’re artisanally made to order for you in our FSC®-certified shop in Los Angeles.
Complete your bedroom with our matching Malibu Floating Bed Frame and Malibu Wood Nightstand. Like the dresser, we craft the bed frame and nightstand in Los Angeles with FSC®-certified maple. The pieces also feature birchwood, soft-close drawers, as well as matte-gold finished handles. Their elegance and exceptional craftsmanship is unmatched.
Furniture paints and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution. Many are toxic and emit VOCs. In fact, the Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and particle board commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our Malibu 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.
Avocado is a certified B Corp and a carbon negative business. That means we voluntarily offset more than 100% of our emissions, from resource extraction all the way 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. We also power 100% of our factory with renewable energy sources.
We believe in a circular economy that accounts for the life cycle of our products. That’s one reason we always use natural, biodegradable materials. What’s more, our GOTS certified California factory, which we power entirely with renewable energy, is on its way toward a Zero-Waste certification, meaning almost nothing gets thrown away. We recycle or upcycle all our material byproducts. The effort is consistent with our mission to set a new bar in environmental and social responsibility.

Dimensions & Weights
Shipping & Delivery
Our Malibu Wood Dresser is handmade in our FSC®-certified (C156318) facility in Los Angeles. The dresser will ship crated. In-home delivery and setup is included within the continental United States only. Furniture is not currently available to ship to Alaska and Hawaii. In-home setup does not include hauling away your old furniture. 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
Wood: 100% Solid Maple
Origin: Made in Los Angeles, California
We do not use traditional lacquers or varnishes, which typically contain harsh chemicals and have strong fumes that can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Instead, our bed frames use a zero-VOC ECOS® WoodShield 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 ASTM D4236, 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.
We operate an FSC® certified wood shop — 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.
Warranty and Return Policy
All furniture sales are final, with the exception of any defects in workmanship. Defects in workmanship are covered by our 10-year warranty.
