The difference between something Good and something Great, is the attention to detail
Our family consists of children, parents, grandparents, and many other small barking and meowing friends. When we are building furniture, we do so with our family in mind this is why we use the very best materials and techniques available right now. Success is not necessarily an economic measure for us, it is a measure of love and care and comes in many shades and forms and with lots of features.
We invite you to look inside our furniture and discover some of the features which make our products unique and better than any other furniture brand we’ve heard of. After all, quality is a journey not a destination, we ought to make sure that the journey is pleasant, safe and comfortable.
Yes, this is a term that is often loosely used by other manufacturers who conveniently utilize “wood-like” materials. Our products are made with 100% solid wood and no, MDF is not solid wood. All of our products are constructed from wood boards and blocks which are non-chemically treated to increase inner strength and environmental tolerance. Structural frames have own-dowels in addition to adhesives and/or pocket screws, drawer boxes are made with wood boards and you won’t find any wood substitutes in the construction of a Romina furniture piece.
Romina drawers are constructed with “half-blind” English dove-tails, the ultimate and most sophisticated drawer technique currently available. Drawer walls have “tails” which are housed in special sockets in the adjacent boards. Sockets are mitered at a certain angle so that all boards interlock for a superior joint which do not require additional fastening means. While this is just optional, we do add our organic tree-sap based glue, as well as a few concealed nails to make these drawer boxes last forever and reduce the inner tension factor caused by the inherent expansion and shrinkage of wooden products.
Our finishes complement our manufacturing philosophy of keeping toxic substances away from our little customers. Our finishes do not contain any VOCs, Lead, Phthalates or other hard to pronounce chemicals. All of our finishes are Greenguard GOLD certified thus providing for a clean and safe environment for children.
Our products are available in two types of finishes, Water-based and oil-based. Water-based stains and paints have a naturally high resistance to environmental changes, durability to scratches and sunlight exposure. The oil-based finishes are made with organic oils and organic vegetable based color pigments.
Our case items are equipped with the best systems currently available in furniture manufacturing. Our drawer systems are manufactured in Germany and feature a hydraulic soft-closing operation guaranteed for 80,000 cycles or approx. 73 years. We are going further and incorporating the latest and most efficient technologies currently available in furniture making. All of our furniture (not only cribs) are Greenguard GOLD certified, all of our drawers are standardly equipped with safe-closing drawers and anti-tipping systems. All of our furniture is designed to be your child’s safest and most comfortable place to sleep and grow around.

The under-mount tracks allow for a full extension of the drawer box for maximum convenience. This feature is especially important for bottom drawers where there is no need to reach far into your dresser and try to guess what is stored at the back of the drawer. A very important benefit of the under-mount tracks is not only stability and maximum extension but the drawer never gets “out of square” so the gliding operation is smooth and easy.
Our products are designed and manufactured with our own families in mind. If it’s not good for us, how could it be good for you? We use technology in abundance, but the human factor is of paramount importance in our manufacturing process for it does not have a substitute. The trained eye and skilled hand is always the best tool in evaluating a natural product with inner variations and imperfections. We hand select the wood which will become a top or a drawer, we hand finish each piece of furniture for the most important customer, your family. All of our furniture (not only cribs) are Greenguard GOLD certified, all of our drawers are standardly equipped with safe-closing drawers and anti-tipping systems. All of our furniture is designed to be your child’s safest and most comfortable place to sleep and grow around.
Drawer boxes are designed with a special rear locking hook where the under-mount glide secures the drawer and prevents tipping on a vertical plane. This feature is especially important for children who are natural adventurers and it is not a matter of “if” but “when” they will attempt climbing onto the furniture. Knowing that your drawers won’t detach and fall over thus preventing injuries, means peace of mind and safety at work. We strongly recommend that you secure all large dressers to the wall using our (included) wall anchoring system which, paired with the anti-detachment system make your Romina set, the safest furniture for your growing family.
