From our Spring 2012 Issue:
Greene & Greene Inspiration
Heirloom quality craftsmanship, hand-selected materials, painstaking
finishes. These works from Craftsmen Hardware may be new, but their attention to detail is a time-honored story. Inspired by the iconic chandelier in the Gamble House dining room, this stunning piece, the Gamble Dining Chandelier, is made from African Mahogany featuring ebony inlays as well as amber iridescent copper-foil artglass. Adjustable leather straps allow for the preferred hanging heights.
The Westmoreland Lamp, an original Craftsmen Hardware tower lamp in the Greene & Greene style, is made from African Mahogany with Ebony inlay featuring tapered posts, arched upper rail, lower-rail cloud lifts and an amber background with white iridescent copper-foil artglass. Custom projects are always encouraged. Learn more at the website.
Open the Door to Timeless Design
It’s those finishing details that make all the difference in a home—especially when the details look this good. These distinctive elements are part of the new Taliesin DesignTM cabinet and furniture hardware collection, born out of a partnership between the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Reveal Designs. Elegantly honoring the legacy of America’s legendary architect, every piece is handcrafted in the USA and constructed of only the finest quality materials, such as beech and walnut, stainless steel and bronze.

Wrightís Imperial Design for Your Table
In 1923, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel was one of the few structures in Tokyo to survive the Great Kanto Earthquake. Sadly, it did not escape the wrecking ball a half-century later. This iconic china, designed by FLW for the hotel’s Cabaret Room, was recreated in 1984 by Noritake to honor Wright’s genius and Tokyo’s lost treasure. Unwind in Time has acquired all known remaining sets of this fine China, now available until supplies run out. Every piece of the seven-piece place settings features the Imperial Hotel logo applied in 18-karat gold, sure to start many lively conversations around your table.
Gleaming Bronze for Maximum Curb Appeal
After searching for a mailbox to complement the solid bronze entry lockset on his vintage home, Dan Plishka realized that the design he was looking for just didn’t exist—so he made his own. By studying the vintage designs of the Arts and Crafts era, Dan created his own classic design, and Blue Water Bronze was born. This handsome mailbox is now available in both cast bronze and powder-coated aluminum. Timeless simplicity, functional style. For dimensions or to learn more, visit the website.
