Create the perfect writing and working space with the Stanley European Farmhouse Chivalry Split Top Blond Writing Table & Chair Set. The spacious table features a durable cast metal base and split-top valet. And you'll love the side chair's European-inspired charm stems and finish options. You can choose between terrain, a hand-waxed coffee-like color complete with artisanal hand distressing; or blond, a natural, close-to-the-wood matte color with a cream-hued accent glaze. With both finishes, you'll see hand-rubbed, burnished, and distressed effects that all combine to give the wood a unique personality. Curves abound in this European-inspired side set, which is crafted of white cedar solids with white cedar and ash veneers. The seat's bowed slats are specially curved to cradle your back and shoulders, while the X-shape tapers seamlessly into the curved, peg-style legs. And let's not forget the Super Comfort seat. It's double-padded for double the comfort, upholstered in an oatmeal linen fabric, and dressed up a bit with antique brass tacking.
The European Farmhouse Collection
Each piece of this unique European Farmhouse collection looks and feels like a prized antique store find, those once-in-a-lifetime discoveries that give your home its unique character. Eclectic accents and colors blend and complement each other like old friends, without being too "matchy." Hand-waxed colors like dark coffee, chalkboard black, and honey blond enrich the Dutch white cedar veneer. Run your fingers across the silky sheen to feel the authentic antiqued distressing, then tickle the Old-World dangle pulls as if this furniture has long been part of your family.
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.
