Larger-than-average people have a difficult time finding furniture to fit their lifestyle needs since most furniture is created with the average-sized person in mind. It is not easy to stuff size XXL sweatshirts into an average-sized drawer, nor is it easy to stuff 40 men’s size XXL golf shirts into one drawer. The answer to the drawer dilemma is found in Norfolk, Virginia, with a company named Big Drawers.
At Big Drawers, plus-size furniture is the norm. Over-sized furniture pieces made of solid wood feature oversize wooden drawers with ample space to hold the 40 golf shirts mentioned above. Chests of drawers are the company specialty but any type of furniture can be custom made to suit any client’s wishes.
Big Drawers is unique; Andy Steinberg, the founder of Big Drawers, recognizes the need for over-size furniture. Andy is a larger-than-average guy who simply wanted a chest of drawers capable of holding all his golf shirts. After searching all over the country for a chest to hold his clothes, he ended up having one custom made. This gave him the idea of turning his love of wood and skills in wood crafting into hand crafting heirloom quality chests himself.
Now Andy considers Big Drawers products his personal legacy. His fine heirloom quality, exquisite solid-wood furniture will last more than a lifetime.
Though chests were the genesis of Big Drawers, any type of furniture can be custom made to order. Woods such as black walnut, zebrawood, canary wood and more are available from all over the globe; most are from managed forests. Reclaimed woods such as chestnut and southern heart pine are obtained from old buildings.
Big Drawers features wooden drawers constructed with traditional techniques such as dovetailing and mortise and tenon joinery. These old methods combined with modern techniques result in an exquisite heirloom quality piece of furniture to complement any décor. Wooden drawers are fitted with under-mount, self-closing, full-extension slides to effectively eliminate the slamming noise most drawers make when closed. The slides also serve to reduce wear on the furniture.
Every piece of furniture built at Big Drawers carries a little of Andy with it, each piece is built with loving care and American pride. Don’t settle for average furniture – Andy doesn’t.
