Stickley Roadshow a Huge Success

May 19th, 2012

We’d like to thank Mike Danials and our wonderful clients for making our 1st ever Stickley Roadshow a huge success!  Not only was our Roadshow the first of the 2012 tour, but is was also the official launch of the Stickley Roadshow Facebook Page!

The evening started at 6:30 with hors d’oeuvres, wine and some good conversation.  Many of the attendees were already  part of the Stickley/Finesse family and used the time to share anecdotes with Mike and our staff.

Mike’s lecture was packed with information which I will not even attempt to recall here.  Among other things, he covered a touch of history, what to look for when antiquing, how to care for fine furniture and what sets Stickley apart from other manufacturers.

An impromptu contest was held where the first person to “like” the fb page won a Stickley 2011 Wedding Mirror.  It was a tense moment as smart phones flew out of pockets and handbags.  After some furious touch typing one lucky attendee emerged victorious and claimed her prize – which was promptly signed by Mike (no doubt increasing the value at least a 100x.)

At the end of the meeting early RSVPers were rewarded with a chance to win $2,500 in Stickley merchandise. We were very happy to see Kris and Chelsea and their young family claim the prize.  Now they’re hooked for life! :)

On behalf of our staff and their families, I’d would like to thank our fabulous clients for a wonderful evening and for supporting local business and our community.  We know there are many choices out there and we appreciate your support.

Orbital Table designed by Pininfarina & realized by Calligaris

May 12th, 2012


From the legendary Italian firm responsible for iconic Maserati and Ferrari masterpieces, comes a new collaboration with Calligaris of Italy.  Introducing, the Orbital Dining Table.

Unveiled at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2011, the Orbital Table was the Interior Innovation Award Winner for 2012, a prestigious title awarded by the German Design Council.

From the Pininfarina webpage,

Orbital was designed and developed with a solid, harmonious base: the rigid polyurethane column which can be painted black or white, makes the structure extremely stable, while the large central opening gives it lightness and character.

The new highly transparent glass top reveals the ingenious automatic open


ing mechanism with its metal arms. This uncluttered, minimalist system supports the two glass extensions which open simultaneously from under the table with a fluid, circular movement.

Fully open, the table can accommodate ten seats. All the metal parts are painted with the new Matt Silver finish, with an opaque silvery effect that enhances the whole.

Stickley Fine Upholstery

April 29th, 2012

If I were to ask the average person what comes to mind when they hear the word “Stickley,” the most common responses would probably be: Mission, Arts & Crafts, Oak or maybe Morris.  It might surprise you to know that after Mission, Stickley Furniture Co’s best selling category is  Upholstery.  You might also be floored by the range of sophisticated styles available and the virtually unlimited scope of  customization.

We are so impressed with the product, that we are in the process of adding another 3000 square feet to our Stickley Gallery – just for upholstery!

Stickley Upholstery – like all Stickley product- is built to to the absolute highest standards.   For those that appreciate specifications, here is what’s under the hood:

  • Sold hardwood frames with double-doweled joints – Usually maple, joints are double-doweled wherever possible for strongest frame possible.
  • Marshall Unit Backs – Most companies use single density foam in tight-back applications.  Stickley uses wrapped coils wrapped in foam for resiliency and comfort.
  • Eight-way hand knotted spring system.  Other manufacturers will boast about their eight-way hand tied spring system.  Stickley actually hand knots each tie which ensures the comfort design will maintain its consistency.
  • All skirts are hand-mitred for a light, elegant and tailored hang.  No tack strips or cardboard here.  The feet have levellers to ensure the skirt will fit precisely with various floor coverings.
  • Four-way center matched or flow-matched where applicable.  This is perhaps the most amazing feature of Stickley Fine Upholstery.   If the pattern has a dominant motif, it will be centred on the cushion backs and inside arm of the piece.  If the pattern does not have a dominant motif, it will be flow matched so that the pattern flows unbroken even across seams and cushions!  INCLUDING ACROSS SECTIONAL PIECES! This really must be seen to be appreciated.

Its possible to pay a lot more for your upholstery, but its our opinion that you cannot find better quality.

For more details, watch the short video below.  It explains things a lot better than I’m able to :).
