The Laredo collection is handmade authentic Mexican Rustic Furniture direct from Puebla MX. All lumber is kiln dried eliminating cracks and checks. Only the best solid pine is used in the construction. Tops, backs, and drawer boxes are solid wood. No plywood or particle board. The hinges and drawer pulls are all hand-forged iron, drawers feature dovetail construction and sturdy wood on wood routered drawer glides. Combine the rough sawn dark stained finish, travertine star and hand forged hardware and you have unmistakable southwestern look.
