Riverside’s products are designed and constructed for use in the home and are generally not intended for rental, commercial, institutional or other applications not considered to be household usage.
Riverside uses furniture construction techniques and select materials to provide quality, durability, and value in our products and allows us to meet the wide range of design and budget requirements of our customers. The construction of our core product line consists of a combination of cabinetmaker hardwood solids and hand-selected veneers applied over medium density fiberboard (MDF) and particle board. MDF and particle board are used in quality furniture for surfaces that require stability against the varying environmental conditions in modern homes. The use of these materials allows Riverside to design heirloom quality furnishings that are not only beautiful, but will increase in value through the years.
Dovetail joinery is the cabinetmaker’s choice for making drawer joints that won’t pull apart over the years. Riverside® craftsmen dovetail joints both in the front and the back of the drawer. We spend a little more time here so that drawers will hold “stuff” for years to come.
We take great pride in the little things…like how easily a drawer opens and closes. Heavy duty steel roller guides offer superb weight-bearing capability as well as smooth operation. Many drawers and doors, like the file drawers in desks, pocket doors in armoires, and printer and keyboard trays in computer workcenters, feature premium heavy-duty drawer guides that provide extra heavy-duty weight-bearing capability and effortless opening and closing with ball-bearing extension slides.
You’ll appreciate the multiple-step application of Riverside’s furniture finishes. You see, the more hand operations there are in the application of a finish on a piece of furniture, the deeper and more lustrous the finish will remain during the lifetime of its enjoyment and use. Our finishing processes involve several steps of hand sanding, applications of several types of finishing coats, padding and polishing.
