A sign of careful attention to interior detail, felt-lined drawers protect your belongings from nicks or scratches caused by knocking against hard drawer walls.
Plates grooves, usually found on china display shelves, safely keep plates standing tall and in place so that you can put your favorites in view. Whether your plates are heirlooms, wedding gifts, or a piece that you picked out yourself, displaying them is great way for your interior design to reflect who you are.
A smooth finish on a drawer's exterior creates a polished and refined look; while one on the interior prevents splinters or snags.
Dust-proof panels may be located between each set of drawers and at the base of the case, or sometimes just at the base. These panels prevent circulation of dust particles and thus protect the contents of the drawers.
Unlike typical glass tops that break into dangerously jagged shards if damaged, tempered glass crumbles into tiny pieces.
Allowing smooth, directed drawer movement and alignment, side guides are wheeled tracks along the side of drawers that guide the drawer along the inner wall.
Levelers keep your furniture sturdy and protected from premature wear when the floor below your furniture is not level. These useful pegs screw into the bottom of your furniture's legs, adjusting each corner to a balanced height.
One of the strongest and most decorative joinery methods, interlocking dovetails maximizes storage space and ensures drawers won't loosen with years of use.
As resilient as our wood pieces can be, they still require protection and care to safeguard their timeless beauty.
At Havertys, we take many steps to ensure the quality and life of your furniture. These methods used on our wood pieces increase strength and durability, while offering an infinite variety of color, texture and beautiful effects.
Used to reinforce joints and provide support to the piece as a whole, dowel pins are inserted into a drilled hole and secured with glue. A good dowel joint employs a fluted dowel, which prevents air pockets from forming in the glue, thus keeping the wood from splitting.
Tongue-and-groove joinery, common in flat surfaces, allow pieces to fit together so that the seam is not visible. One side of a wood piece has a slot (groove) cut out along its edge and a thin, deep ridge (tongue) protrudes out of the opposite edge.
Corner blocks at the joints of wood frames increase sturdiness and durability. This method of joinery support offers the best strength and practicality.
Mortise-and-tenon joints are a variation of a tongue-and-groove joint, and are used in table legs, chairs, chests and dressers to provide added strength. The narrowest end (tenon) of one piece of wood fits into a hole (mortise) in the second piece of wood. The joint may be glued, pinned, or wedged to lock it in place.
Adding dimension, color, character and smoothness to the wood, a multi-step finishing process also preserves the wood's natural beauty. This wonderfully enhancing process is highly desirable, and found in the finest furniture.
Antiqued technique creates a handsome, vintage, timeworn look on new furniture by applying a coat of stain and allowing it to dry completely. The stain is then removed from selected areas, usually edges and corners, using fine-grit sandpaper giving it a faded appearance.
