January 2017


CEO MESSAGE

A very busy factory
2017 is barely underway and it is already looking like a great year. Our factory is swamped with work, and not just any work - some amazingly diverse projects. CEO John Wall offers you a glimpse inside of the factory and what it means for WallGoldfinger as it enters its 46th year. The best is yet to come


PROJECTS

Bursting with appeal

We showed you this table last month in progress in our Trends section and named it among our top projects. This veneer wonder is now complete. See the results

PROJECTS

Exceptional veneer, finish and design make these pieces standouts
This beautiful collection of furniture designed by Darwin Branded Environments left the factory on Jan. 9. You may recognize the table from our last newsletter where we named our best projects and talked about its beautiful veneer. Now see the finished product

NEWS

Coming in 2017
We're excited to soon announce two new product lines, the Engage (shown above) and Fuse. Both are conference table lines with matching credenzas that capture what designers and clients have been telling us they want ... a thin top, narrow base with lots of leg room, hidden technology and sleek design. We can't wait to show you more in the coming months. Until then, in case you missed our humorous look at the making of this table, here it is again.

ADVANCEMENTS


Veneer supervisor named
Congratulations to Elgin Slayton, left, a 20-year employee of WallGoldfinger, on being named veneer supervisor. Elgin previously worked in veneer for 15 years before transitioning to the finish department for the last five years. Here he consults with estimator Randall Edwards, right, who also worked in veneer for many years. WallGoldfinger often promotes from within. With his many years of experience, high skill set and work ethic, Elgin was a natural choice for the job.

Summit bridge
Summits have been used in every room from the café to the boardroom. One unique use is the Summit bridge design, which places Summits between two fixed tables. One fixed tabletop slides a couple of inches to access the Summits. Move the Summits to engage an operable wall and create two meeting spaces or leave the Summits in place for one long meeting table fit for the boardroom. The Summit bridge

'THIS OLD HOUSE'


Go (way) inside the Vermont Danby marble quarry
Our John Wall "just happened" to catch an episode of "This Old House" recently and was excited to see a segment visiting the Danby marble quarry near us here in Vermont - a stone we regularly use in our furniture. "This Old House" nicely segments its footage so you can watch just the visit to the mine. We've added some arrows to help guide you. Our screen shot above is about halfway through the footage and takes place a mile inside the mine as large blocks are being cut. Click the image to go the show. If our link has expired (because it looks like it might), Google "This Old House Vermont Danby." It is definitely worth a look.
EMPLOYEE ENDEAVORS

A look outside the factory

Vermont affords its residents many opportunities to grow and give. A couple of our employees raise backyard chickens to provide fresh eggs for their families. Their varied flocks produce eggs in many sizes and colors (not unlike our tables). If Pantone needs help identifying next season's colors, we offer this inspiring palette of browns, whites and pale blues straight from the nesting box, courtesy of our Communication Director Robin Palmer's affectionately named Little Lady Layers.
