Metal is a hard, durable material, and furniture made of metal typically requires far less maintenance than wood. Use these tips to get the most from your aluminum or steel office furniture.
Brushed Steel leg plates are finished with a Hand rubbed Oil finish and sealed with a Clear Satin Conversion Varnish finish. With normal use the finish and sealer should never need to be reapplied. Brushed Steel is subject to corrosion, therefore we do not recommend outdoor use in coastal areas, or exposure to rain.
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.
