Forget raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. We’re talking snails and puppy dog tails, here! The Paula Deen Guys line from Universal Furniture offers rugged-looking, smart designs that are built to last your little guy as he makes the journey toward manhood.
Complete with media-ready, safety-conscious Smartstuff™ features, this line will help the adventuresome young men in your life recharge and gear up for their next adventure, wherever it may be.
The Look of Things
Paula Deen created this line with her grandsons in mind — and they’re made of the same things as your sons. If the definition “noise with dirt on it” seems appropriate, the roughhewn, already distressed appearance of Paula Deen Guys will have you breathing a sigh of relief.
For the traditionalist in you that likes furniture throughout your home to have a sense of unity, the classic styling will not disappoint. Deen begins with the naturally mineral-streaked Poplar, indiginous to her home base in Savannah, Georgia. The artfully uneven planks and deep Molasses finish suggest the look of reclaimed lumber or softly aged antiques without compromising stability or style.
The Lasting Things
When it comes to furniture designed for kids, there’s often a gimmick of a character or some other means of attracting children’s attention. Once parents shell out the money, though, they’re often disappointed about the relative quality of kid-specific brands.
Paula Deen Guys is produced by Universal Furniture using many of the same time-tested foundations of quality furniture.
If anything, the children’s lines take extra precautions to ensure safety and durability — especially with your “all boy” in mind!
You can choose from the Reading Bed, Panel Bed, or Bunk Beds, each including a plywood slat roll foundation for stable, safe support under whatever mattress you choose.
Storage pieces include drawers with English dovetailing and have been tested to 50,000 cycles.
The Little Things
They each include full-extension metal drawer guides and built-in drawer stops and boast a self-closing, soft-closing design. Additional stability and safety protocol include screwed-in back panels, anti-tip restraint hardware, adjustable levelers in case of uneven surfaces, and metal pins. Add in lead-free finishes, softened corners and edges, and carefully sized openings to help avoid entrapment, and you have an ideal setup for the first “big boy bed” through the young adult years.
As his adventures become more sophisticated, your rough-and-tumble guy will appreciate pieces like Jack’s Chest, Matthew’s Media Chest, and Henry’s Desk, all named for Paula Deen’s grandsons. Each includes a unique built-in light, charging station, and/or cord-management system to help store and manage his electronic tools.
The rustic look, lasting construction, and little details all set the Paula Deen Guys line apart from the competition. We hope you and your son will love it as much as we do!
