We are a very small Family business with only 5 staff between two locations. We do it all from office work, design, fabrication and installation. We have been blessed since this past spring to be very busy with several long stints where we worked 20-30 days strait with no days off. While we love blogging our customers come first.
Not to worry we have a long list of blog subjects we will be posting soon.
My understanding is that this line was previewed at Mick DeGulios’s downtown Chicago showroom during KBIS 2010. I didn’t make it there but photos are just getting out on Siematic’s second take of the Beaux Arts line.
A cleaner transitional look with the introduction of polished metal and metal framed doors.
This is a two part post enjoy the Pics. Photos via Siematic and Kitchen Hip.
The Nashville Parthenon was built in 1897 for The Tennessee Centennial and International Exposition. Extensively rebuilt in the 1920’s. Located in Nashville's Centennial Park. Replicas of the Elgin marbles were are cast from the originals which are in the British Museum. I have been to the British Museum twice and they are amazing but there are people that would like to see them return to their original home.
The interior has a recreation of the statue of Athena. Sculpted by Alan LeQuire in 1990.
The basement of the building houses an art gallery. (Does the real Parthenon have a basement?) The gallery has a permanent display of paintings, the “Cowan Collection” which spans the years 1765-1923.
The Parthenon was recently used in the movie Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
The Documentary "Louis Sullivan: The Struggle for American Architecture" comes to St. Louis! I've been waiting for this film to come to St. Louis. It has been touring the country for some time. It will be showing SundayNovember 14th at the HI-POINTE Theater. The architectural firm of Adler & Sullivan built four projects in St. Louis and three of them still stand. Frank Lloyd Wright and George Elmslie worked on these projects as young Draftsmen. St. Louis is also home of "The Sullivan Collection" at SIUE in Edwardsville and the St. Louis Library owns the original tracings of the Wainwright Tomb. I'll be front row center....can't wait!!!
