Fine Furniture Design launches custom casual dining

Protege Custom Dining offers different bases, table top, finish and fabric options

HIGH POINT — Case goods and upholstery manufacturer Fine Furniture Design is offering a custom casual dining program this April called Protégé Custom Dining.

Fine Furniture Protege The Petit Four dining set is part of Fine Furniture Design's new Protege Custom Dining program.
The line expands its dining portfolio beyond its large-scale formal looks into smaller, casual footprints that aim to serve the growing number of open residential floor plans that combine entertaining and living spaces.

Protégé features 14 regular height table base options available with round tempered glass tops as well as quartered oak and black limba veneer tops in 48-, 54- and 60-inch sizes. There are also 20 new chair styles that can be paired with various tables. Tables can also be paired with select inline dining chairs.

The chair frames, table bases and wood tops also are available in any of 32 water-based finishes, while chairs are available in any of more than 200 fabrics and leathers. This includes a number of performance fabrics available from Sunbrella and Krypton.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
