Stanley Furniture has gone back to the basics with The Classic Portfolio. The kind of basic that remains as such because of its timeless and foundational lines, proportions, and shades. If this furniture could talk, it would tell of the kids that stored their treasures in the back of the bottom drawer; and how years later, those same kids came back each Thanksgiving to hide behind it to pop out and make Dad jump, just because it gets him every time. It would tell of the one time the dog ran into the house and jumped on it but Mom soon laughed it off, because furniture is meant to be used. Ownership lies in the ties to the furniture, the character it is given. The visible wood grain, the intricate designs in the metal hardware, all traditions made into options in The Classic Portfolio by Stanley.
European Cottage is just that: the small rural feel of classy, comfortable cabin life, but in the high grassy corners of Europe. A quiet, quaint, quintessential cottage.
