Sophistication comes in fine details with the wood paneling effect of the Hale series. Center planks of wood, blend with the cross-grained back surface, to create an effect that is both distinguished and imaginative. The Hale series comes laminated in varnish, with an antique espresso dark brown stain, and requires assembly. Wipe clean with either a dry cloth, or something intended for wood furnishings. The set does not include a mattress or box spring. Box spring is required.
