Materials & Care

We take great pride in sourcing the best materials available. All our furniture is hand built by Brandon and his team in our wood shop in Chicago, IL with responsibly sourced materials.

All in the Details

Our cabinets are made with a mix of solid hardwood and real walnut veneer. The cabinet cases are made using the highest quality FSC certified 15 ply baltic birch core with a thick A-1 grade real wood veneer. This allows us to offer a very stable, high quality cabinet at an affordable price.

Professionally Finished

Our cabinets are finished with environmentally friendly, low VOC water-based paints, stains and topcoats. Department Home cabinets are professionally sanded and prepped for coating by our experienced team. Each cabinet has a smooth spray finish, which highlights the natural wood grain of our cabinets.
