The Willow collection combines soft curves and angles for a contemporary look and feel. Starting with the slightly flared legs, the curved apron and the reverse beveled top, and then finishing with the crescent shaped pull which is stained a rich walnut. These pieces have interest from all sides. This nightstand is constructed out of solid cherry and is made right here in MA. The Willow 1 drawer nightstand also features an open space under the drawer which is perfect for book or magazine storage. Because of the nature of cherry, new pieces will be lighter in color. As it ages, the wood boards darken and increases in character and finally achieves variegated shades of the rich, reddish patina that you associate with cherry in approximately 12 months.
