Grothouse Lumber debuts Paul Grothouse tables

(Germansville, PA) – Grothouse Lumber, a premier manufacturer of custom-built wood surfaces, is proud to unveil the Paul Grothouse Collection of solid wood tables and food preparation surfaces. The heirloom-quality tables will be marketed under the Paul Grothouse name and will be available to the trade in early spring 2010.

The Collection includes three distinct classes of custom tables: The Infinite customizable series; The Tavolo dining series; and the Taglio series of kitchen preparation tables. Each table is built by hand using solid wood components, resulting in individually-crafted legacy pieces designed to last generations.

“This is a truly unique product line for the design trade,” stated owner Paul Grothouse. “These tables allow designers to create a table that complements an existing design rather than being confined to a stock table design. Their clients are not longer forced to settle for a table that doesn’t fully integrate into a space.”
The Infinite series includes a carefully chosen selection of dining table components assembled to appeal to any design aesthetic. Each table can be configured using a variety of sizes, wood species, base styles, leg styles, apron styles and edge treatments to achieve a truly unique finished product. A fully-illustrated catalog featuring thoughtfully laid-out drawings and design components helps guide designers in the design and selection process.

For those seeking a truly dramatic aesthetic, the Tavolo series of dining tables is composed of uniquely designed selections by Paul Grothouse. With an intentional nod to organic and architectural influences, the pieces are carefully constructed to the customer’s size requirements, using the wood species and finish choices selected by the client. The clean, elegant lines of the tables will add a touch of sophistication to any interior.

The Taglio series of kitchen tables provides a functional work surface cleverly designed in a modern yet classical style. Each piece artfully integrates innovative storage and smart design, breathing fresh style to any chef’s kitchen.

Each table is custom sized and manufactured to the same exacting specifications as the Grothouse line of wood bars, countertops and butcher blocks. All tables are available in a 3-4 week lead time and can be finished with Grothouse’s exclusive Durata® permanent finish or a food-grade oil finish. Custom color stain matching is also available upon request to match existing interior décor or cabinetry.

“Designers have limitless design possibilities with these tables,” explained Grothouse. “They can select from more than 60 wood species, various construction styles, edge profiles and more to design a table that is truly unique to their clients.”

This product line will be sold exclusively through the professional design trade.
