NEW! Natural Wood Dresser
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
The Natural Wood Dresser is part of our Natural Wood Collection. It proudly features reclaimed wood, eco-friendly materials, and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Handmade in sunny California (yes, just like our Green and Vegan mattress), our Natural Wood Dresser features easy 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 Natural Wood Bed Frame and Natural Wood End Table. Consistent with our broader company values, we handcraft our furniture to meet the highest standards of safety and environmental responsibility.
GLORIOUS RECLAIMED WOOD
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 don't 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.
QUALITY IN THE DETAILS
We've thoughtfully considered every detail of our Natural Wood Collection. 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.
LOW PROFILE DESIGN
There’s no need to secure the dresser to the wall; the low profile of the Natural Wood Dresser helps it stay firmly set on the floor and reduces the risk of toppling over.
A GREENER CHOICE
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 Natural Wood Dresser uses none of these materials.
As members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest assured that our Natural Wood Dresser supports healthy, environmental-friendly living.
SOLID WOOD, NOT PARTICLE BOARD
The reclaimed wood used in our Natural 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 building quality products that last), and promote sustainability.
OLD GROWTH DURABILITY
We reclaim most of our wood from buildings that were built 50 to 100 years ago. Because it is mostly dense-grain, old-growth material, our reclaimed wood is harder and more durable than any new lumber. New lumber often contains sapwood, and as a result, is less dense (because it comes from younger trees), contains larger & looser knots, and exhibits a higher moisture content (making it more prone to warping, twisting, and bending).
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 of the woods we use are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). 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).

Solid Wood Construction
Reclaimed (upcycled) solid vintage wood — much of it from old-growth Douglas Fir ecosystems in Western North America — is sourced locally from the greater Los Angeles area, where it has been seasoned for decades. Wood that has been previously chemically-treated wood is never used. All of the wood used will exhibit the character of vintage wood, to include smoothed nail holes, natural patina, fine cracks and other weathering.
No traditional lacquers or varnishes are used, which typically contain harsh chemicals and have strong chemicals that can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Instead, our dressers 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 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.

PLASTIC OCEANS INTERNATIONAL
People buy 500 billion plastic water bottles worldwide every year. More than 90 percent of all plastics are never recycled. The result? Eight million tons of plastic dumped in the oceans annually. The consequences are devastating — diminished ecosystems and wildlife as well microplastics in our own food and water systems. That’s why Plastic Oceans International is on a mission to end plastic pollution. Through advocacy, activism, education, and science, the nonprofit hopes to change the world’s attitude toward plastic and thereby influence public policy and consumer and corporate behavior.
