When we say the Grand Continental Barolo Nightstand has organic style, we mean it - laid into this small table's top is a striking blossom design around which the piece naturally blooms. Classic lines, dramatic detail, and artful aging lend the table additional vintage appeal, and a curved storage drawer makes it practical. We wouldn't blame you at all for taking it out of the bedroom for use in the living room's full view.
This nightstand is crafted with durable maple solids and white ash burl and maple veneers, given a well-loved look with multiple distressing techniques including hand-rasping, cow tailing, rock denting, fly specking and spattering, and wormholing. The warm brown decorative finish melds ochre, chestnut, and burnt sienna shades with gleaming gold striping.
The stylized blossom motif tabletop is balanced by a stacked, urn-shaped pedestal base. A curved center drawer is finished with a nickel-plated brass ring pull. Coordinates with other Grand Continental collection pieces.
The Grand Continental Collection
Stanley Furniture's Grand Continental collection has a rich heritage inspired by the best of Italian Rococo and Baroque periods, with a generous dash of Spanish and Portuguese spice. Sensuous serpentine curves wrap around hand-carved accents, intricate trim and dazzling brass hardware. Aged veneers glow through the hand-rubbed satin finish with an impressive variety of complementary wood tints. Hand-painted striping and Gesso textures look like the personal touch of a craftsman, because they are.
Stanley Furniture Craftsmanship
Stanley Furniture's main objective is to produce quality and stylish furniture by using the best wood materials, construction procedures, and elegant finishes on their products to help you fashion your home decor the way you imagined. All of their furniture is hand-crafted from quality woods, incorporating other superior materials such as aluminum, glass, plastic, leather, and marble. Every joint is carefully constructed (keeping wood's sensitivity to heat and humidity in mind) allowing for expansion and contraction. All joints are held together with glue and nail.
Stanley's 30-step finishing process starts with an undertone stain that is applied to a hand-sanded piece. Next, the stain is sealed with a wash coat, then hand sanded again with filler applied to pack the wood pores and smooth out the surface. A sealer coat is then applied, the piece is hand sanded again, and hand padded to mellow the tone. From there, a luster glaze is rubbed on by hand, followed by antiquing or distressing also done by hand. Finally, after drying, each piece is hand waxed and rubbed prior to final inspection.

Assembly Difficulty Level
Do not place your furniture in direct sunlight and/or a damp area. Arrange your furniture so it is not placed in front of or over heating or air conditioning vents. Avoid placing furniture directly under windows. Be careful not to place plastic materials (place mats, lamp bases, notebooks, etc.) on your furniture. Certain plastics have ingredients that may react with and damage the finish. Occasionally rotate accessories so they do not remain in the same spot for extended periods. Avoid creating marks on your furniture by placing a piece of felt, cloth, or leather under accessories. Lift objects from the top surface rather than dragging them across the finish when moving them. Use a protective pad when using your furniture as a writing surface (especially when using a ballpoint pen). Wipe up spills promptly. Water left over a prolonged period of time will cause white spots in the finish, and alcohol, perfume, after-shave, and medicines can cause severe damage to the finish. Dust frequently with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. To remove accumulated dust or old furniture wax buildup, use a soft, lint-free cloth which has been dampened in a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Dry thoroughly using a clean, lint-free cloth, and then apply furniture polish, wiping it in the direction of the wood grain. It's recommended that the furniture be polished every six months.
