This 1919 political cartoon about the Paris Peace Conference shows Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France, inviting German delegates to sit at a conference table with spiked chairs, manacles at each seat, and platters of cactus and nettle. The cartoon reflects German fears that the Treaty of Versailles, created at the conference, would mean harsh terms towards Germany.
Stoneline recently completed this credenza and bookcase for a private home in Asheville, NC.
“I commend your crew. The delivery was quite professional and compact. We appreciated the phone call from Bart, zeroing in on the timing, as well as his complete and confident assembly of the unit. I guess that goes with being one of the craftsmen involved in construction.
“That brings me to the piece itself. Absolutely beautiful, exactly what I had anticipated since I had visited your factory earlier and had seen some pieces first hand, fits into the decor of our home perfectly — these are just a few of the expressions of satisfaction that Michael and I uttered after your crew left. I’m sure they were aware of how pleased we were, as we were oohing and ahhing the entire time they were here! A well-chosen piece,artfully designed, and constructed with quality and precision. I could go on and on. Thank you for creating this unit which we are proud and lucky to own. “
Stoneline Designs recently completed this custom designed Bamboo Office Suite for a client in the Chicago area.
The client wanted his home office to feature sustainable materials as much as possible. We adapted our Axis Office line for him, using rapidly renewable bamboo veneer over NAUF (no added urea formaldehyde) MDF substrate, with a water-based low VOC finish, to construct the drawer boxes. The leg plates are 33% recycled aluminum in our Bright finish, and the I-beam support rails are also 33% recycled aluminum with a powdered finish.
The office suite includes a desk and a 3-part credenza. The credenza was custom designed to fit the angled wall in the office space, with a lowered center which the client uses as a computer desk. The desk and credenza both have custom designed drawer boxes, and our Patterned “Scratched” Glass tops, with a bamboo veneer top in the center section of the credenza and custom arced ends on the two glass top pieces.
This detailed photo of the desk shows the Bright Aluminum texture on the leg plates, Patterned “Scratched” Glass top, and bamboo drawers.
