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.

Used Henkel Harris, Used Maitland Smith and More!

mahoganysideboardandchairsAs many of our customers enjoy their Week at the Beach or go School Supply Shopping, everyone at Cornerstone is busy preparing more Great Used Furniture to fill the store!

The picture here shows a snapshot of the activities from just one afternoon in our workshop. You see Mr. Nowlin polishing a set of Used Maitland Smith Chippendale Chairs. Behind him is a Like New, but Used, Henkel Harris Mahogany Sideboard with beautiful inlays. What you can’t see is the wonderful French Country Table by our dock door. This Round Henredon Table is a real eye catcher. Other hard-working staff members are shown in the picture helping to keep it all moving.

The next time you stop by the store, be sure to take a peek in the Warehouse and see this all for yourself. Because while everyday brings something different, you can be assured that at Cornerstone you’ll always find High Quality Pre-owned Furniture in Like New Condition from America’s Top Manufacturers. That’s because even in August, everyone at Cornerstone is thinking about furniture!

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.

Baltimore Magazine Article

Cornerstone Featured in Baltimore MagazineWe are thrilled to be named one of the Region’s Best Consignment Shops by Baltimore magazine in its July 2011 issue. Thank you to Christianna McCausland who writes about Cornerstone- “Specializing in high-end brands in traditional styles, this is the spot for name-dropping- think Henkel Harris, Biggs, and Stickley. These folks know what they’re getting when they take consignments, too. There’s an antique expert on staff to separate the real deal from the reproduction and an on-site workshop to maintain and polish all pieces. Cornerstone’s website is constantly updated to show current inventory so shoppers can e-snoop before they shop.”

The kind words certainly didn’t go unnoticed by everyone here at Cornerstone, where we all believe that Luck is what happens when hard work and good fortune meet! Thank you again to Christianna and everyone at Baltimore Magazine. We’ll continue to work hard in our quest to be Baltimore’s Furniture Store.
