10 reasons why The Urban Collections is an incredible value

Dovetail Drawers

The front and back corners of each drawer feature English dovetail joinery, which produces a drawer strong enough to withstand a lifetime of openings.

Floating Spacer Balls

We place these rubber ball bearings inside the frames of all floating panels, which allow the panels to expand and contract naturally without causing warpage, splitting or rattling.

Solid Wood Tops
& Side Panels

Solid wood tops and side panels are a signature of heirloom quality furniture. Every case piece we make – whether a small media chest or a tall armoire – features only the best solid wood top and side panel construction.

Corner Stability

Case furniture features reinforced wooden corner blocks to add strength to your furniture and prevent it from racking when handling or moving furniture.

Graduated Drawers

All of our cases are designed with drawers that increase in size from top to bottom. Although more difficult to design, the result is a truly stylish and sophisticated look. In addition, all drawers extend fully for maximum storage capacity.

Solid 5/8" Finished Drawers

Interiors finished with 2 coats of Catalyzed Conversion Varnish. Each drawer is sanded smooth providing a clean look and the ultimate protection for your clothing.

Smooth Glide System

Smooth operation and full access to the entire drawer is achieved by our fully extended Accuride ball-bearing glide system. Drawers are attached at the sides onto solid wood; no plastic or staples are used in our construction.

Framed, Fitted Back Panels

A wooden panel is framed and screwed into the back of each case for added strength and to eliminate racking. Pocket screws are used for easy access and removal of the floating top. Then we ad that extra step and completely finish the fitted back panel of each case piece in the same exact stain used on your masterpiece. At The Urban Collections, we do not take short cuts.

Bolt Rail and Slat Supports

Each bed features a dovetailed, solid wood slat support system that rests in a cast-aluminum alloy fitted frame snugly. Each slat has a stained wooden support leveler underneath, and the entire support system is attached to 5/4" solid rails that match the species and stain of your choice. This old-world technique provides stability and strength that will last a lifetime.

Stain & Finish Quality

Our Conversion varnish delivers the best long-term quality, hands down. It provides unbeatable durability when exposed to many solvents, household products, food items and oils. The highest solid content of conversion varnish offers a denser wear surface to protect the wood. This coating is extremely clear. The silky feel of our conversion varnish is unmatched. Conversion varnish is chemically cured, as opposed to air drying, which gives a tighter molecular binding, protecting your furniture against solvents and water. This type of coating is not intended for "disposable" furniture. It is designed to safeguard the beauty and integrity of heirloom quality wood products.
