Carpet Workroom from Final Touch Interiors aquires new portable Carpet Binding Maschine

As our customers are ordering more Carpet Runners and Area Rugs for their Homes, we realized that our Carpet Workroom needed a new portable Carpet-Binder to improve our efficiency when working on the Job. Our old Carpet Binder just was not up to the Job anymore.
After talking to several Suppliers, we decided to get the new NC Millennium 2005 portable Carpet Binder.
Carpet Binding MachineHaving bought from NC in the past several Products, like for our Drapery Workroom and our Carpet Workroom, we have been always very satisfied with their products and especially their customer support. And also their proximity to our Business Location was a big factor too.
Especially we have been very satisfied with their industrial TPB Carpet Binder. This workhorse is the world’s most capable carpet binder. It binds up to 3 inches, applies fringe, and even sews on serging tape. This bobbin-less, self oiling machine requires minimum maintenance and binds 4-5 times faster than conventional carpet binders. Powered by 2 independently driven clutches, this double puller handles dense, tough backed carpets with ease. The TPB is a lifetime machine designed to withstand multiple daily shifts in our Carpet Workroom. One of my best in investments, to get all Carpet Binding Jobs nice and perfect done.
Now to get back to the portable Millennium 2005; it is a quite interesting Binder which is bobinless, no more bobbins, just two large Spools of thread. It accommodates several different kind of Binding Tape including serging Tape an important factor.  And its speed is a phenomenal 23feet per minute (1380 feet per hour) on Cove Base. Last week we took the new Baby out for a run on a large Job. Instead of being on the Job for 2 days or having to bring the Carpet to our Workroom (an unnecessary step) to get the individual pieces bound, we got it done in one day. Not only was the Customer happy that we finished the job so fast, also my carpet installers were quite happy with a big job done so efficiently.

Workroom for Draperies-Upholstery-Shades and Pillows

We finally did some extensive remodeling of our workroom in which we manufacture our Draperies, Shades, Upholstery and Accessories. It took me quite some time as it involved a complete makover during the normal operation of work.
I finally can give my upholstery men his own large workspace to do his upholstery work on Sofas, Benches, Chairs, Ottomans etc. Moved the noisy air compressor out of the workroom into an enclosed area, so nobody is bothered by the noise any more.

Our beloved large drapery table which uses a custom measuring system from OB/Masco went back into the centerstage of our operation again. On this table we cut, measure and pin our Draperies in a very efficient and very accurate way.

Due to more work for swags and jabots, we changed now to the heavy use of Velcro. I got that idea when doing work on a boat, as on this particular job we could not use any nails or screws. But we still had to hold the window treatments in its place, that how I started to use Velcro. It comes in any shape and style.
For swags and jabots it does not matter in the production any more, if they are for a drapery pole installation or mounted on a board installation, or just for a free flowing Swag/Jabot treatment on top of a window or door.
Recalls or remakes don’t exist with this particular system either. Further it gives us an edge in a faster production. We always love that. This all is only possible with the use of a german work room system, which includes large commercial steam ironing stations.
Drapery Work RoomAnyone who knows about ironing fabrics will understand how difficult it is to get wrinkles or marks out of any kind of textile fabric, even at home when ironing the husbands shirts.
This irons work with heavy steam and their ironing sole can be adjusted to a lower temperature. Above problems can be elliminated without any big hassles.
It is also a snap now to apply blackout linings to any kind of window treatment like Roman Shades etc.
Great also in attaching any kind of Trims or Tassels to Draperies, Balloons, Roman Shades or any kind of valances we have to manufacture.
Even by the creation of custom decorative pillows which are delicate with their intricated patchwork, embroidery etc. it is very efficient and easy to use.

bathroom-sink-in-a-box-hidden-by-makro-1a.jpg

A powder room hidden in a box - what will they think of next? Hidden, by Makro of Italy, was designed by Giulio Gianturco. The box is made from thermo treated wood in Hemlock finish - both nautical and reminiscent of the travelers' trunks of times gone by. The sink basin is Corian, the taps stainless steel. There's a light, a plug, a drawer and a mirror with a magnifier - what more could you ask for? Perfect for a make-up station or a hidden sink in the bathroom. When closed, Hidden becomes an elegant box, highlighted by the fine wood grain. Even just as a box, it's gorgeous! But imagine the surprise when your guest lifts the top and finds the perfectly contained wash station. And the best part? Closing the lid means you hide any mess - the fastest clean up in the world!

From Marchi Cucine of Italy comes this stunning retro-look kitchen, dubbed St. Louis, and new for 2014. Isn't it just peachy-keen? Made of lacquered woods, this kitchen stands up to the fine quality that the Marchi Group is known for, world wide. The rounded corners and pastel colors are such a flashback in time - we can just see the 50's family, gathering around for a meal. But at the same time, it has a modern flair -- isn't it just a little bit Jetsons? And aren't those rounded-corner windows in the cupboards just charming? And we love the porthole windows on the oven, with it's mesh screens. This room just screams Buddy Holly, Elvis and the gang. What a blast from the past. Time to pull out your grandmother's recipe for macaroni and cheese and get cooking!


Astonishing Faucet with Clear Glass Spout: Axor Stark V

13 Apr 2014 at 2:08pm
astonishing-bathroom-faucet-by-hansgrohe-1.jpg

It's like a science lesson and a stunning bathroom faucet rolled into one. Until it is turned on, it's another glass faucet spout. And then, the magic begins. When the mixer is turned on, a water vortex is created -- and sent rushing up the glass spout where it cascades out like a waterfall. And you can see the whole thing. In a partnership between Hansgrohe and Axor, the Axor Starck V was born(designed by Phillip Starck). The incredible faucet is available for regular drop-in sinks and vessel sinks (as a single hole installation) as well as a two hole installation. No matter which you choose, you'll spend a lot of time watching the mixer create the vortex of water and send it along for your use. A transparent process, and one we have never given much thought to, will now endlessly fascinate you. It's almost a shame to hide it in the bathroom!
