Staff Celebrates Wally’s 85th Birthday!!

baltimorefurniturestorestaffIf you’ve ever wondered about the secret to living a long, healthy life, you may want to consider the furniture business! As our loyal customers know, the expert staff here at Cornerstone are like the energizer bunny…..they just keep going and going.

This week we celebrated the birthday of Mr. Wally Nowlin. Wally is MICA educated and has spent years working in the top design firms and furniture stores in the Baltimore area. We have been blessed to have both his friendship and his expert help in our workshop for the last twenty years! Wally’s passion for furniture is only surpassed by the generosity of his time and talents to his church and friends over the years.

If you’re in the store on a Tuesday or Friday, please stop in the workshop to say hello to Wally and wish him a Happy 85th!

Furniture Shop on your way to the Maryland State Fair!

statefairentranceIf the State Fair has you visiting Timonium, be sure to take a few minutes to visit us here at Cornerstone. You’ll find a 15,000 square foot store filled with New and Like-new Furniture from the best manufacturers in the country. For people who think Used Furniture Stores are for filling your college dorm room, you’re in for a pleasant surprise! All of our inventory is prepped and polished by our workshop staff and displayed in easy to see room settings. You’ll find Henkel Harris, Ethan Allen, Potthast, Kittinger and more. Use the Manufacturers dropdown list on the left of this page to search our inventory by Maker.

For those people not going to the Fair, Don’t Let the Fair Stop you from Visiting. You can easily get off I83 and get right back on again without hitting any of the Fair traffic. You’ll find that most of the Fair traffic is on the York Road corridor and the majority of that happens at night! So browse our website first. Then make plans to get in the car for a visit. After all, just like the State Fair, nothing beats seeing it all in person.

Consignment Furniture Makes a Statement!

traditionalfurniturefederalstyleDo you want to see a home furnished almost entirely with Cornerstone furniture & accessories? Our own Dena Lorenzi, Cornerstone’s Marketing Manager, posted a group of photos onto our Facebook Page from a recent visit. Here’s what she had to say…….

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the house of a loyal customer. John Blake* has been shopping at Cornerstone since 2004. He loves traditional, federal…-style decor; his space is gracious & exquisitely decorated. Mr. Blake jokingly told me that over a 30 year period he’s refined his taste, ” going from Ford to Jaguar.” His condominium took about 5 years to finish. Mr. Blake spoke highly of Cornerstone’s master restorer Wally Nolan. The gentlemen have been friends for over 20 years. Mr. Blake explained, “Wally has been instrumental with furniture selection & placement, paint colors etc. He’s been a terrific sounding board … a trusted advisor.” Wally is MICA educated & has spent a career working with the top design firms in the Baltimore area. There’s so much eye candy to feast on in this 1,800 sq. ft. home. Each piece has a story; each piece has meaning to Mr. Blake. I am truly grateful for the hospitality of my host. We hope you get inspired! Enjoy the photos.
