Stance offers new drum table for intensive use environments

KITCHENER, Ontario – Stance Healthcare has launched Resilia, a new version of their drum table surfaced with Marmoleum. The launch was made before its showing at NeoCon.

Resilia was designed for behavioral health facilities and was intended to be durable and easy to clean. A steel plinth base has added weight to protect the table from damage. The Marmoleum surface material, typically a flooring product, improves durability. The table also features concealed fasteners and tamper-resistant glides.

According to Carl Kennedy, Stance president, the table was designed to exceed the durability and safety requirements of behavioral health facilities.

Kathy Ireland line expands into commercial furniture with BBF

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. -- Bush Business Furniture has announced that Kathy Ireland Worldwide has expanded into the professional office with a pair of commercial furniture collections through a partnership with BBF.

The new Echo and Method lines were displayed at NeoCon in Chicago. They represented the debut of Office by Kathy Ireland. By extending its reach into BIFMA-grade products, the line strengthens a longstanding relationship with Bush Industries Inc., the manufacturer that operates multiple brands including BBF.

Since the partnership began in 2010, Kathy Ireland Office by Bush Furniture has topped $100 million in sales with a focus on products for the home. The new commercial designs bring fashionable looks and professional quality into today’s rapidly changing workplaces.

“Whether you’re a work from home parent, small business owner, entrepreneur or new business startup, we value your needs for fashion forward, reliable office furniture to fit your unique style and personality,” said Ireland. “We also respect your budget, the spaces in which you work and desire for durable, flexible solutions that promote growth and productivity.”

 

Featuring a contemporary design, Echo gives commercial office furniture an inviting residential look to reflect customers’ personal and professional styles. The collection includes desk and storage solutions finished in pure white to blend into a modern small business or remote workspace.

The other new introduction, the American-made Method collection combines metal and wood to celebrate mid-century modern style. Designed with an urban appeal meant for a start-up, loft or creative space, the desk and storage products come in cocoa oak and white finish options. Both collections also include ergonomic height adjustable standing desks. See http://www.bushfurniture.com/.
