Here MJM Furniture's two drawer modern interpretation of the traditional bedroom mainstay is rendered in charred Loblolly pine; with mitered edges, the undulating texture wraps the case in deep color. As a counter point, the hand-turned knobs and turned tapered legs remain clear and golden. The cabinet is scaled for a place beside the bed or sofa with room for a lamp, several books and a glass of water.

The Charred Collection evolved from the traditional roots of ancient Japanese wood construction, which emphasized a need for rot and bug tolerance while maintaining a consistent structural integrity. MJM Furnitures burning process, based on this model, entails binding three boards into a chimney for a controlled burn over a small firebox. The resulting boards are wire brushed and receive multiple coats of a clear zero VOC, water based finish. This ensures their durability, functionality, and longevity as an elegant and unexpected addition to a space.

MJM Furnitures limited edition furniture is handcrafted from wood with unique stories, shared through traditional joinery and a considered modern aesthetic. Each numbered editions piece comes with a history of the tree and details of the design as well as a commissioned art print unique to each collection. They are proud to say a donation is made to the Arbor Day Foundation for each piece of furniture they build; these donations plant trees and support educational programs.
