Timberlake Cabinetry featured in 2013 New American Home at IBS

New American Home 2013 Great Room

The New American Home 2013 great room features Timberlake Lausanne Cherry Java and Spice cabinetry.

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, is the featured cabinetry provider for The New American Home (TNAH), the annual showcase house of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) presented in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, NV, January 22-24, 2013. TNAH is considered the premier venue for new design trends, products and technology for builders, remodelers, architects and designers.

Timberlake® cabinetry is incorporated throughout the 6,721-square-foot desert contemporary home designed and built by Blue Heron. Fifteen rooms feature the classic, clean lines of the Timberlake Lausanne® slab door in deep Cherry Spice, Java, and Maple Espresso and each is used in innovative ways. Several rooms also include cabinetry with the recently launched CushionClose® Hinge Option, resulting in a soft, gentle closure every time.

The great room and kitchen are unified into a single living space by a striking 47.5’ run of Cherry Java and Cherry Spice cabinetry, which also shapes the fireplace surround and media center while providing ample storage. In the kitchen, aluminum-and-glass doors are a gleaming example of the current two-tone design trend.

The home also reinvents the wine room with multi-dimensional cabinetry used as a focal point. In the library, Timberlake wall cabinetry becomes floor-to-ceiling horizontal shelving. Floating base cabinetry creates a light, sophisticated appeal in all of the home’s baths.

Timberlake and Blue Heron designers collaborated on every step of the process. “It’s almost product development,” says Blue Heron architect Michael Gardner of the partnership. “We took the traditional kit of parts and used them in innovative and unique ways to showcase the possibilities.”

Timberlake will be hosting a customer/media event and guided tour celebrating the completion of the home on January 22, 2013. Customers and members of the media will have the chance to tour the home and meet with Timberlake executives and staff.

Sponsored by the Leading Suppliers Council of the NAHB and Builder Magazine, this marks the 30th year The New American Home has been featured alongside the International Builders’ Show.

Advantages of Maple Wood

Timberlake Sonoma Maple Espresso

For generations, maple wood has been the highly regarded choice for furniture, flooring – and cabinetry.  You’ll find gleaming maple tables in antique shops, and still-glowing floors and cabinets in historic homes.

What are the Advantages of Maple Wood?

  • Maple has a fine, consistent grain that makes for a handsome, uniform appearance, and it sands to a glass-smooth finish with ease.
  • A hallmark of maple is its warm consistent shading that takes stains beautifully.  Even today’s popular near-noir shades show a rich, deep, even tone.  Prefer paint?  The fine grain of maple assures a smooth appearance when your favorite hue is applied to the wood as well.
  • Maple is one of the harder hardwoods.  It’s stronger and more durable than other woods, so it takes everything life throws at it – and looks beautiful for years to come.

Affordable Maple: That’s the real beauty.

We hear a lot of builders say they’d like to offer maple cabinetry, but they’re afraid of the cost.  Some spec birch instead and – unfortunately – they’re discovering “the poor man’s maple,” is a poor substitute due to the lack of durability and quality once birch cabinets are installed in a home.

The good news is that we are making solid hardwood maple cabinetry affordable for homeowners. Because of our buying power, we often purchase maple at the cost others pay for lesser woods.  Plus, you know it’s domestically sourced from verified sustainable sources – less carbon emissions from domestic transportation routes and cost to the environment.

And, the wood is only a small part of the cost to deliver cabinets.  We negotiate better pricing on all the elements – from plywood, to hinges and delivery boxes.  And, we strive to run the tightest manufacturing process to reduce waste and scrap, so you know you’re getting a product that has been made with care for the environment from start to finish.

The combination creates a striking impact and welcoming warmth. The new shade, first introduced in August 2010, can now be found in the Sierra Vista®, Durango®, Capistrano®, Yellowstone®, New Haven, Rushmore®, Wyoming®, Lausanne, Cumberland®, Sonoma®, Scottsdale® and Tahoe® collections.

Embracing the trend of rich, warm, dark colors in furniture design, Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, introduces Espresso, its darkest finish for Maple cabinetry. Espresso is available in six collections within the Timberlake® Portfolio® and Portfolio Select® Series.

The near-noir Espresso finish creates dense, dramatic coloring, yet brings out the natural grain of the Maple hardwood. The result is a look that’s striking, elegant and cosmopolitan. The new shade was launched in August of 2010 in the Capistrano®, Sonoma®, Cumberland® Square, Scottsdale® Square, and Tahoe® Square door styles. It will be available on Timberlake’s new Lausanne™ collection when it debuts in March 2011.

“More than ever, we see homeowners drawn to the darker shades in all types of home decor,” says Laura-Jo Boynton, Brand Marketing for Timberlake. “With our Espresso finish Timberlake expands the palette, opening new options in design thinking. For example, Espresso adds depth to today’s contemporary home designs and also complements transitional looks. It moves effortlessly from the kitchen to the living room, dining room, bath, home office, and throughout the home. Espresso is another fresh, chic Timberlake style that gives homebuilders the elements to create a custom-built look.”
