Let’s get to
Welcome to a look at Showplace cabinetry for the home office and workplace. While our cabinets are most often found in kitchens, baths and other rooms in the home, you’ll soon see that they can be right at home in the office as well – and for the same reasons: Showplace cabinetry offers quality, versatility, and an almost limitless ability to express personality and maximize space. It can move your work setting above the ordinary. All the while, Showplace offers value that makes good sense on the bottom line. So let’s get to work.

assignment. Today, your home office can be just as important as the workplace office. Showplace cabinetry can make that home office a place of quiet comfort and efficient productivity. In the home office shown at left, the mitered Woodbury door style is bright and cheery in maple, with the understated Cashmere stain. Open areas provide bookshelf space while closed lower areas hide office clutter. Take note of the intricate stacked moldings, fluted vertical elements, and graceful valances crowning the open areas. This is the private first lady’s office in the South Dakota Governor’s Residence. See more from this Residence on the following page.
Similar to the design above, this home office (right) takes on an entirely different personality in rich Showplace cherry. Note the mullioned glass doors and the custom desk design. On the previous page, an unused room has been transformed into a comfortable home office with Showplace cabinetry.
Remember that variation is one of wood’s finest natural attributes. Actual finishes will inevitably differ somewhat from what you see here. 3
A governor’s haven.
When the South Dakota Governor’s Residence was rebuilt Showplace was chosen to supply the cabinetry for the family portion of the elegant structure. The governor’s private home office is shown here. A soaring, semicircular space is embraced by Showplace cherry, including the handsome wainscoting. A custom desk was created with Showplace components, while Showplace base cabinets ring the outer wall. The Residence must serve the governors and public for generations to come. A timelessness was sought, and Showplace cabinetry supplied just that. Most of the rooms were designed with the classic, understated Covington style, in rich, warm cherry. The exception was the first lady’s private office. She preferred a brighter, less formal feel, and Woodbury in Maple Cashmere was the perfect choice (shown on the previous page).

productive. Thereâ€™s a busy factory right down the hall, but Showplace turns this executive office into a quiet oasis of dignified comfort. Showplace Lyptus is used for the desk and cabinetry, as well as for the paneling and trim in the room. Lyptus is an environmentally-managed hardwood that has the appearance of Mahogany and the hardness of maple, yet is a fully-renewable species that does not deplete old-growth forests. When finished in the Truffle stain and accented with Ebony glazing, as shown here, Lyptus has a warmth and character rivaling that of fine cherry.
Classic details support the dignified tone of this executive office, including the fluted quarter-round columns and the Colonial furniture base treatment.

First impressions are important. From the moment a visitor walks in the front door of this buildersâ€™ association headquarters they are welcomed into the homelike comfort of Showplace Lyptus cabinetry in the rich Chestnut stain.

An opening in the boardroom wall (above left) reveals a fullyequipped kitchen, another Showplace Lyptus creation. The understated Covington door style gains added visual interest with subtle distressing and ebony glazing. Note how open areas and glass display cabinets enhance the reception counter, while an array of wall and base cabinets add useful storage space to this important hub of activity (at left).

Call the meeting to order, with Showplace versatility. This bank building conference room is called upon to play many roles. When used for meetings or teleconferencing (as shown above), the setting is made warm and welcoming by a handsome Showplace bookcase creation. Combining closed cabinets, drawers large and small, and open display and bookshelf areas, it is a truly versatile creation. Note how the variations in cabinet height and depth enhance the visual interest of the design.
Adjacent to this conference room, hidden by folding panels, is a fully-functional Showplace kitchen and island. For large meetings, it offers a serving area for refreshments, and a place for participants to gather, chat and relax. With the panels closed, it functions as a break-time and lunch-hour resource for staff.

workplace. This developer is in the business of creating homes for thousands of people, and Showplace cabinetry lends a homelike personality to their facilities. A flowing visual continuity is created by the consistent use of Showplace cherry in the rich Merlot finish. The cabinetry is further enhanced with Showplace ebony glazing, which highlights detail and gives a subtle impression of graceful aging. Showplace facilitates personalization by incorporating custom outsourced pieces into the designs. The hand-carved moldings and capital onlay shown at left were finished by Showplace to match the cabinetry. Also note how the Showplace pocket doors keep A/V equipment tastefully out of sight when not in use. From the spacious elegance of the presidentâ€™s office (at right), to a compact corner unit in an executive conference room (left), Showplace cabinetry adds functionality, comfort and beauty to the workplace.
Showplace cabinetry in this comfortable executive office provides abundant storage, sprawling workspaces, and an elegant, furniture-like flavor. Note how the metal hanging-file cabinets have been incorporated into the design.
