Tear Sheet Tuesday: Summer recipes, NYC X Design & Furniture Porn

Gloria Graham-Sollecito

Welcome to another edition of the occasional series I call Tear Sheet Tuesday.  We launched last Tuesday.   If you want to catch up you can do that right here.  In a nutshell, I tear what strikes my fancy throughout the week and I share that with you here.  It could really be anything. It's all inspiration!

Perhaps today's tears will inspire you to cook, lounge by the pool or get busy creating an office you really want to work in!  Let's get started.  First off, my Cooking Light hit this week.  I wanted to be good and feature this...

However, THIS is what really looks yummy to me.  Both are super summer meal inspirations and can be found in the current May 2017 issue of Cooking Light.

In addition to recipe fantasies you can indulge in a little design dreaming this week if you happen to be in the Big Apple.  NYC X Design is going on right now and it's open and free to the public through May 24th.  This is the fifth year of this international event where you can attend talks, product launches, exhibitions and more all over NYC.  For more info click here. 

Needless to say I have plucked some coolness from the pages of The Official Guide to NYC X Design, from the Editors of Metropolis.

 

I guess I'm into the walnut wood  finishes with a little lounging mixed in these days.  Mark my words, beautiful stained wood grains will be the next big cabinet look, as soon as white Shaker runs its course (which could be never). 

Last but not least, I know you didn't forget the furniture porn I promised you ;).  I have been eyeing this incredibly beautiful burled wood console for a really long time.  This week's sale catalog from Williams Sonoma came in the mail and BAM!! There it is on sale.  Should I? I really love it.

So that's what I have for you this week.  Please send me YOUR tears so that I can see what's inspiring you and feature it right here. Also, don't forget to leave a comment.  I'm getting lots of emails and I'd love for you to share your kind words right here.

Don't miss a post.  Sign up (upper right) to have them personally delivered to your inbox.

Upholstered lines, architectural woodwork and custom furniture for offices, hotels, and homes remains under the name Stow/Davis. Headquarters remain in Grand Rapids, but production moves to newly acquired plants in Indiana, Colorado, and Ohio.

PERSONNEL
The company was originally formed by the partnership of Russell Stow and Thomas Haight. Stow, who also served as mayor of Grand Rapids, returned in 1907. Haight sold his share to George Davis in 1885. Davis remained an officer of the company until 1922. Edgar W. Hunting became an officer of the company in 1896. The firm was reorganized in 1936 by Peter J. Wege, Walter Idema, and David D. Hunting, all of whom also played an important role in the establishment of Steelcase, Inc. Also involved in the 1936 reorganization was Robert Bennett, who served as president into the 1960s, and expanded the company’s offerings in the area of total interior decoration planning.
Edgar R. Somes, a prominent Grand Rapids designer, created some designs for Stow & Davis circa 1900 – 1901. Arthur E. Teal, who also served as a designer for Stickley Brothers, designed for Stow & Davis in 1918 and 1919. Giacomo “Jack” Buzzitta began working for Stow & Davis in 1936, and became the first full-time product designer on staff of an office furniture manufacturer. In addition to his role as head designer, which he held until his retirement in 1975, he also produced some of the miniature sales samples that were carried by company salesmen. George Reinoehl designed the 1960s walnut and chrome “Predictor” line. Interior designer Alexis Yermakov was commissioned in the late 1960s to create the “Electa Series”. Don T. Chadwick designed Stow & Davis’ award winning “Series 1000” line of occasional tables, sofas, and chairs, which was introduced in 1973.

PRODUCTS
The company began as a manufacturer of kitchen and dining extension tables. In 1889 the company produced its first custom and production boardroom tables, a product which remained one of the company’s specialties for more than a century. By the 1890s Stow & Davis offered a large range of library, office, and dining tables, including oak pedestal tables. A 1907 article in The Grand Rapids Furniture Record described Stow & Davis as the “largest exclusive table house making medium and high grade dining and office tables.”
A 1911 article from the Grand Rapids Herald states that no hand carvers were employed at the factory, because of the “remarkable simplicity” of its machine-made tables. Circa 1916 advertisements promoted Stow & Davis’s ability to produce suites of bank furniture for major clients. They generally included large Adam or Colonial Revival style boardroom tables, wood and leather executive and swivel chairs, and traditional wooden desks in oak or “dull” mahogany.
In 1928 Stow & Davis introduced the first wood and steel framework desk in the wood furniture industry. This method of construction was soon incorporated into all its bank and office furniture suites. Lines with names like Grand Rapids, Kent, Nottingham, Colonial, Baronial, Georgian, Adam, Jacobean, Gothic, and Florentine were make of walnut, mahogany, and oak during the 1920s and ‘30s, in traditional period revival styles.

Developed in the late 1930s, the Harwood, Croyden, Rapide, Metro, Beacon, and Moderne, and Progression lines, and successive versions produced in the 1950s and ‘60s known as Progression II and III, featured wooden case pieces in walnut of blonde satin finish and leather chairs or sectional seating. All of these lines were characterized by Art Moderne lines, curved tops, rounded corners, and streamlined hardware. The related Nordic suite was made with bleached or gray-silver mahogany veneers. During World War II Stow & Davis manufactured functional wooden desks, chairs, and even bunk beds for naval vessels.
The Custom Executive, Predictor, Sigma and Transition office groups of the 1950s and ‘60s consisted of International Modern style free-standing desks, credenzas, conference tables, and occasional pieces of wood with exposed steel frames, chrome hardware, and leather or fabric upholstered seating. The American Colonial, Italian Classic, Kent, York, Georgian, and Sherwood lines continued the offering of more conservative mahogany or walnut executive furniture, with historical English or Italian influences.
The biomorphic “Bubble Chair,” produced between 1965 and 1970, had a rounded nylon upholstered form on a chrome or aluminum pedestal base. The “Electa Series” was introduced circa 1968, and featured freestanding pieces with rigid International Modern chromed steel frames, which supported interchangeable panels of walnut, textured vinyl, or smoked glass. Harty desks, design by M.F. Harty circa 1974, featured massive slabs of rounded walnut floating atop a base of mirror chrome steel. The “Triangle” chair, designed by Robert DeFuccio and produced from 1975 to 1985, won numerous awards for its continuous triangular frame of bent plywood.
The “Free-Dimensional” furniture and wall system, and related “Cube Desk” series, were designed by Warren H. Snodgrass, and introduced in 1974. Finished in a combination of wood veneers, plastic laminates, metals, and fabrics, these were the first open office plan lines offered by Stow & Davis.

OTHER SOURCES
The Grand Rapids Public Museum has a large archival collection, which includes catalogs, furniture plates, awards, upholstery samples, and other materials relating to Stow & Davis, as well as many pieces of Stow & Davis furniture and sales-sample miniatures. The Public Museum also owns The Jack Buzzitta Archival Collection, which includes many plates, design drawings, and interior photos of bank and corporate installations by their most notable designer.

MARKS AND LABELS
In the 1910s the company name was printed in upper-case block letters, with the ends of the first and last “S” extending above and below the name, containing “GRAND RAPIDS” and “MICHIGAN”. During the 1930s and early 1940s the name was adapted to italicized upper-case block letters, with the ends of each “S” still extending above and below the name. After World War II the “S” and “D” were printed in script, and the lines above and below the name ceased to be connected to the letters. Pieces manufactured between 1953 and 1962 may carry the trademark of the Executive Furniture Guild of America, with the emblem of an eagle surrounded by the words “Prestige, Character and Integrity”. Stow & Davis’s logo from the 1950s until 1985 was a streamlined upper-case “S” attached to a “D”. After Steelcase’s acquisition of Stow/Davis in 1985, all Steelcase wood products were sold under the Stow/Davis or Stow & Davis name. In 1992 the ampersand was dropped from the name.
