About this item
Excellent for larger families or to accommodate more guests, the Shaker 7-Piece Dining Set is also an attractive choice for any dining room. It's made from rubberwood, an eco-friendly hardwood that comes from trees cut down at the end of their latex-producing life cycles; these trees would otherwise be burned or used for fuel. Rubberwood has a dense grain and readily accepts finish, making it a natural choice for furniture. The dining chairs have fabric seat cushions to provide you and your guests comfort, and the five-step finishing process ensures that this dining set will provide beauty to your home for years to come.
About Atlantic Furniture Founded in 1983 as Watercraft, Inc., Atlantic Furniture started as a manufacturer of pine waterbed frames. Since then, the Springfield, Mass.-based company has expanded to Fontana, Calif. The company has moved away from the use of pine and now specializes in imported furniture made of the wood of rubber trees.
The Benefits of Eco-Friendly Rubberwood Prized as an environmentally friendly wood, rubberwood makes use of trees that have been cut down at the end of their latex-producing life cycle. The trees are removed by hand and replaced with new seedlings. In the past, felled rubber trees were either burned on the spot or used as fuel for locomotive engines, brick firing, or latex curing. Now the wood is used in the manufacture of high-end furniture. It is valued for its dense grain, stability, attractive color, and acceptance of different finishes.
Atlantic's Unique Five-Step Finishing Process Each product in the entire line is finished with a high-build, five-step finishing process. After a thorough sanding, a wipe-on sealer is applied, followed by a tinted sealer to even the grain and color of the wood. Additional sanding prepares the surface for the first base color coat, more sanding, and a second base color coat. After a final sanding, the finish coat is applied. This process produces a beautiful and durable finish that will last for years.
