Much like its namesake, the Whiskey Barrel bedroom collection has an artisanal quality which makes its surroundings warm and inviting, with a style that improves over time. Crafted of knotty oak veneers and poplar solids, Whiskey Barrel is rendered in aged gray/brown finish or a darker roast finish, which is enhanced by a uniqe wire brushing and timeworn distressing process.
The signatue piece is the sleigh bed, which is framed by wide, graceful posts capturing a bent panel. This panel is constructed of solid wood slats, which give the bed an honestly planked effect. The sleigh bed is available with either a traditional bent seigh footboard, or a highly functional storage platform footboard.
Case pieces are generously scaled, with usefully proportioned bottom cedar lined drawers, featuring Elite series self-closing ball bearing drawer glides. Thick tops, wide pilasters, and bracket base rails frame the dresser, chest and night stand. Classic ring pulls, designed especially for this collection complete the look of the case pieces. The collection is rounded out by a beautiful landscape mirror with wide, mitered frames.

About Vaughan Bassett
Based in Galax, Virginia, Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company manufactures bedroom furniture. In 1919, two men, B.C. Vaughan and J.D. Bassett, Sr., both of whom were from Bassett, Virginia, first founded our company. Mr. Bassett, Sr., and his brother, C.C. Bassett, also founded what today is well known as Bassett Furniture Industries.
Employing about 700 people in factories based in Galax, Virginia, and Elkin, North Carolina, we are extremely proud of the fact that 100 percent of our furniture is crafted here in the United States by American employees. In fact, Vaughan-Bassett is now the largest manufacturer of wooden adult bedroom furniture in the United States.
Most of the furniture we manufacture consists of wood solids and wood veneers grown and harvested near our plants in the Southeast. Pine, oak, maple, cherry, ash, poplar, birch and beech are the primary species used in Vaughan-Bassett's bedroom collections.
Our number-one priority is providing our customers with unmatched service, quality and value. In short, nothing makes us happier than to make it easy for our customers to feel at home.
Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company is committed to manufacturing its furniture in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner. Through its "One for One" program, Vaughan-Bassett has contributed 150,000 tree seedlings in 2007 to the Virginia Department of Forestry.
The planting of these 150,000 maple, oak, ash, pine, poplar and applewood trees allows the replacement of every tree used in the production of the company's bedroom suites.
Since 2007, over 1 million trees have been planted by the Virginia Department of Forestry through this program.
Bettina Ring, a Virginia state forester, writes: "Your idea to plant one new tree in Virginia for every tree you harvest each year is sustainability at its best."
Vaughan-Bassett has also installed $2 million state-of-the-art rough end systems in each of its two factories. These computerized rough end systems have increased the lumber yield by over 20 percent, thereby significantly reducing the number of trees needed to produce furniture.
Vaughan-Bassett is a leader in the "Buy Local" movement. Over 99 percent of its lumber comes from within 500 miles of its factories - 80 percent from within 200 miles, reducing the carbon footprint associated with the transport of primary raw material.
Vaughan-Bassett is a founding member of the Sustainable Furniture Council and is committed to a program of continuous improvement of its systems, striving to be an industry leader in producing environmentally responsible bedroom furniture.
