This Northern Red Oak Mission System is manufactured from select hardwoods from American forests. Now, this may not mean a lot to most of you, but I think if you compare these pictures of an Oak system to the cabinets you see in most production homes, you can see the difference in grain and color uniformity. This is a hallmark of my company. Onlythe best! I receive lots of calls from my resources in the lumber industry suggesting that they have made a special purchase of Oak that is almost select. I can't entertain the thought of sending you a real Mission Armoire made of anything but what I would put in my own home.
Our standard of production for this system is to request the finish you wish to be applied for the stain coloring desired. The following day we will apply a pre-catalyzed lacquer finish to this system.
Purest from Stickley would suggest I just cheated on what Gustov Stickley would have blessed. My answer is Gustov didn't send any furniture to sit on top on top of a Colorado mountain. For 27 years, we have manufactured furniture to survive the harshest conditions in America! So, when we send something to the Canary Islands, we don't expect a phone call saying, 'the wood has cracked'. It just won't happen. The reasoning I've already explained how we apply finish in the FAQs, but the short version is we seal the wood twice, it can't breathe.
The grain pattern that I'm demonstrating in these photographs is what is called 'plain slice'. We welcome you to get crazy and request water marks, rift grain, or rotary (you'll have to prove to me you want that ugly look!).
The system that we are introducing in this series of photographs is called our basic Armoire. You're welcome to change the design in any manner that pleases your senses. But this is the most popular configuration we manufacture.
This client sent us a drawer from a desk that would be in the same room. We matched the finish and accent hardware.
Measurements of this system are:
21" deep, 66" wide at the waist and 88" tall
Some installation notes: This system can be attached to either the wall or floor. Built into the bridge assembly is a sliding steel bracketing system that will make installation convenient. At the base of the Armoire, at the rear of the enclosure is what we call a baseplate. This allows easy attachment to a wood or carpeted floor.
I suggest if being placed on a tile floor you seriously limit your attachment to the wall. (Repair......)
The accent hardware that we have selected here is from an online company Lee ValleyYou are welcome to change the pattern and order direct from this good company and send your purchase direct to our showroom for attachment at our factory.
