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.
