Sheffield Dulles Showroom Manager, Randy Shannon, Assists IUP Students in Furniture Design Challenge

Sheffield designers are passionate about what they do and often spend their free-time pursuing their love of design, furniture, and art. Randy Shannon, designer and manager of our Dulles showroom, is no exception, recently working with students at Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a design challenge. Below, Randy explains the project and his experience at IUP. He also included some gorgeous photos of the final designs!

The Sutton Bench

 

Over the past several months, I have had the opportunity to work with Advanced Woodworking students at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP).  The University offers undergraduate and graduate classes at The Wood Center at IUP.  Students can receive undergraduate and graduate degrees in various media, including Wood.

 

During the spring semester of 2016, Advanced Woodworking students were challenged to design a bench that would embody the history and design of the University.  To be called the Sutton Bench after the first building on campus, this item was to reflect the architectural history of the campus without being a reproduction piece and also the bench should use locally harvested Oak, a popular symbol of the University.

 

Throughout the course of the semester, students worked individually and in teams to design a number of different bench designs.  From these, a final bench design was created incorporating elements from different pieces.  For the end of the semester, students produced a final Sutton Bench, which was officially unveiled to the University on May 5, 2016. The President of the University and the University Trustees were present for the unveiling, as were the students and other members of the University community and the public.

 

The finished Sutton bench is built of locally harvested Oak and its design elements mirror the Italianate architecture of John Sutton Hall.  This is most apparent in the bench leg design, which is an inverse of the cupola atop the University building.  The back panel has been laser etched with photos of Oak trees on campus.  The photos were taken on April 27, 2016 so the etching can be dated precisely for those interested.  Additional Sutton Benches will be constructed and it is hoped that the sale of these benches can be used to support additional equipment and activities at the Wood Center.

 

It was a lot of fun for me to have this experience because I got to work with young, enthusiastic artists and I was able to contribute my ideas to the final design.

High Point Furniture Market — Spring 2016

It’s that time of year again! Our Sheffield Furniture & Interiors design team just got back from their trip to High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina. While they were there, they scoped out some of this year’s hottest new designs and trends and kept us up to date with beautiful photos. We spotted a few new color trends—for example, we noticed repeating themes of emerald, navy blue, and gold in various displays throughout the market—and we are loving 2016′s palette.

 

Check out some of our favorite photos from our design team’s trip and let us know what you enjoyed seeing most!

 

All the best,

 

Amanda Y. and the Sheffield Furniture & Interiors Team

Behind the Scenes — Design Boards

When our designers are working on a project, they put together design boards—collecting fabrics, patterns, floor plans, and accessories and gathering them together in one gorgeous display.

 

Some of our Rockville designers shared photos with us so we can see what they’re working on now. These beautiful works-in-progress give us a nice preview of their final product. Take a look and see for yourself—you may even find some inspiration for your own interiors, too!

Time for Outdoor Furniture!

This past weekend, the cloudy, gray Pennsylvania days made summer weather feel far off, but the rain and gloom transformed into a gloriously sunny week. Now, spring is in full bloom and soon we’ll be out in our backyards for family barbecues, poolside lounging, and warm evenings under the stars!

 

To help shake off the winter months and get into the spirit of the upcoming season, I gathered some photos of my favorite outdoor furniture from our collections at Sheffield Furniture & Interiors. I hope you enjoy them and find some inspiration for your own backyard escape, too!

 

(Don’t forget! April 4th is the last day to order Brown Jordan and have it arrive in time for Memorial Day. So, if you haven’t gotten your Brown Jordan orders in yet, make sure you order before April 4th!)

Welcome Century Furniture!

Century Furniture has come to Sheffield Furniture & Interiors! We’ve welcomed their furniture into our showrooms, and now we’re welcoming them on their visit to our Malvern showroom to meet our design staff. We are so please to have Century aboard, as both their furniture and their people are top quality. Alex Shuford, president of Century, is the third generation of Shufords to lead Century Furniture and has upheld the core values of the company and continues to push it forward to the highest levels of quality, craftsmanship, and environmental responsibility.

 

As a family company, it is no surprise that Century Furniture is a very family oriented company and cares very strongly for their community. Craftsmanship and care for the individual has been a part of Century’s philosophy from the beginning, as is clear in the founder’s, Harley F. Shuford, Sr., own words: “We strive to make furniture of such impeccable quality that it brings joy not only to the people who own it, but also to the craftsmen who build it.”

 

We were so excited to welcome them to our Malvern showroom this October, and we look forward to our continued relationship with them.

Take A Seat

We have some exciting news! We will be joining designers from all around the Philadelphia area in the annual IFDA (International Furnishings and Design Association) Take a Seat charity exhibition and auction. We, like the other designers, will be designing and donating a chair that will later be sold to benefit local charities. We’re absolutely thrilled to be participating in this event, so we decided to document our chair design process and share our excitement with you.

 

Our Chair selection for the IFDA event is the Louis XVI chair by Hickory Chair. We chose a simple reupholstery to demonstrate how drastically customizations, such as fabric selection and finishing, could change the character of a chair.

 

Sheffield-Furniture-Chair-Before

Original Louis XVI chair by Hickory Chair

 

First, we stripped off the old fabric, and then we hand-painted gold detailing on the legs to accentuate the gorgeous design and flow seamlessly with the gold in our selected fabric.

 

Sheffield-Furniture-Take-A-Seat-1

 

Our craftsmen take great pride in their work, carefully hand-painting and upholstering every detail

 

Sheffield-Furniture-Take-A-Seat-2

 

We decided to give the chair a royal flair by selecting a rich red fabric and sophisticated gold pattern to cross the surfaces of the seat and back.

Each selection—from the fabric to the gold highlights—was made to accent the unique, attractive qualities of the chair’s design. We opted for a contrasting back fabric to bring out the deep, royal red tones of the pattern. And on the front, we had the welt cord folded on a bias to subtly accent the pattern. Our chair, Imperial Design, will be auctioned on October 16th at the Take a Seat charity auction.
