Guy Chaddock: Past, Present, Future

The new Guy Chaddock Monterey collection crafted in distinctive Quartersawn Oak was a big hit at the October 2016 Market. Available in a new palette of exclusive wire brushed finishes, Monterey affords a world of choice to interior designers. Or so we thought!

Chaddock heard you. We are happy to announce that the Monterey Collection is also available in Maple, and at the same price as Oak – no up charge! As you know, most furniture makers are simply unable to offer a change of wood species within a collection. Chaddock is ready, willing and able – a result of our made-in-America manufacturing model and a company culture that seeks to please.

Monterey Maple dining table tops are an especially robust offering. They are available as planked tops (with scoring), smooth plank top (no scoring), inlaid plank tops (planks and lumber bands scored), and smooth inlaid plank tops (lumber band scoring only).

While a change of wood species may seem like a simple thing, in reality, it’s not. Maple and oak, for example, accept stains and finish treatments very differently. To be sure your Monterey orders – whether in Maple or Oak – are exactly what you want, please note two special ordering parameters:

  • Your approval of a strike off panel required on all Maple pieces with Wire Brush finishes. Why? Oak and maple respond to our wire brushing technique very differently.
  • Quartersawn Oak pieces may only be ordered in wire brushed finishes. Chaddock standard or premium finishes may not be specified. Color changes are significant and unpredictable. We cannot guarantee your satisfaction, so they are off the table!
