The Craftsman design movement of the early 20th century sprang from a desire for practical, honest furniture that countered the filigree and flighty flair of earlier eras. This unique design philosophy demanded straightforward design, and the Modern Craftsman Joinery Cross Nightstand brings this demand into your modern bedroom.
Beneath the nightstand's circular top, the center post is supported by four trestle-style feet banded in the center to form a radiating bouquet. Made of maple and select hardwood solids with sungkai veneers, this USA-made nightstand is finished in a blanched Driftwood shade that's been wire brushed, cowtailed, fly specked and spattered, and topped with wool wax for an effect that's rife with character. The lighter, natural color blends with and offsets any dark piece in the Modern Craftsman bedroom collection (sold separately). It's been over 100 years since architects and designers adopted Craftsman-school style, but it's all yours with this nightstand.
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.
