  "THE NOTABLE FEATURES in 
the Chromewald furniture, designed 
by Gustav Stickley, are the decorative 
distinction and originality of design 
and above all the beautiful finish 
which is in fumed antique in blue or 
gray or brown: 
  "When one sees the Chromewald 
furniture one does not think of a spe- 
cial type or period or school of de- 
sign, but rather of warmth, harmony 
and artistic ensemble: 
  "It has been said to resemble most 
intimately the beautiful finish of a 
century-old violin." 
From the G;and Rapids Artisan Record. 
  CORNER CUPBOARDS like the 
one shown at the right would add a 
charmingly decorative color note to 
even the most luxurious of rooms: 
Though there is a suggestion of quaint 
old fashioned grace about it, it is de- 
cidedly modern in line and in its in- 
troduction of color: Equally interest-

wald settee: Here is ample opportun- 
ity for bringing it in harmonious color 
relation to a room in both covering 
and pillows.
