WILMINGTON, N.C., March 1, 2005 — Chadsworth’s 1.800.COLUMNS are featured in the February Issue of HOME Magazine. The Ultimate Insiders Guide to Unique and Hard to Find Home Goods and Services is an annual list of sometimes off-the-beaten-path but always-outstanding home-related products and shops.
Listed under Alternative Building Materials, Chadsworth’s 1.800.COLUMNS PolyStone® Columns topped the list. ‘By merging classical styling with modern materials like lightweight spun-fiberglass and low-maintenance PVC, Chadsworth has produced a collection of stock and custom columns that will withstand the test of time.
Chadsworth’s PolyStone® columns are made of reinforced polyester resin, fiberglass and marble dust, and feature an architectural taper and a classical bead. The Tuscan capitals and bases are made from the same material as the shafts.
No stranger to the readers of HOME, Chadsworth’s 1. 800.COLUMNS PolyStone® Column was the recipient of HOME Magazine’s 2001 American Building Products Award. “The PolyStone® Composite Column was chosen because its design so clearly responds to the demands for form and function required by today’s lifestyles”, said then Editor Gale Steves, “The PolyStone® Column is a classic idea with a twist”.
“Architects, builders, designers, and homeowners tell us that our PolyStone® Column is an excellent product, and is the only choice when extra strength and durability are needed on the job, and we’re glad that Home Magazine agreed,” says Jeffrey L. Davis, the Founder and Principal Designer of Chadsworth’s 1.800.COLUMNS.
