Mark Richardson: The Gift of Time


All of the wood exterior doors in this new collection from Simpson Door Company were designed by leading architects; this latest collection includes award-winning architect James L. Cutler, FAIA.

An elegantly sculpted side and a sleek, simple side provide total design flexibility in this reversible, Italian-crafted fireclay sink from Lenova.

Using the same LED technology as high-definition televisions, this thin (.55 inches thick) light fixture can be flush-mounted on ceilings, walls, or under the counter.

This prefabricated wood shearwall from Simpson Strong-Tie offers structural support comparable to narrow steel shearwalls, with greater flexibility and lateral-force resistance.

Three vortex light elements form the points of a three-dimensional triangle in this chandelier from Derek Marshall Lighting, with a fourth vortex in the center 6 inches lower.

This drop ceiling product offers the look of a custom-crafted three-dimensional ceiling at an affordable price.

Schluter introduces this tileable covering support for its Kerdi-Drain product line, which in turn complements Schluter-Kerdi or other bonded waterproof membranes.

Installation is fast and easy with these oversized shingles, measuring 39 inches by 14 inches with a 6-inch exposure for easier measurements.

Sterling’s line of Vikrell bath and shower products are now Greenguard Gold-certified and can contribute to indoor air quality and the well-being of consumers.
