Stone 2 Furniture® creations get notice and appreciated for their creativity, enduring beauty and durability. The following are just a few of our reviews and comments from satisfied customers.
“I got your postcard in the mail today and its timing was perfect. I am looking for new pool furniture and a bistro would be perfect under our pergola by the pool.
I have purchased from you in the past for my office. The chairs still get as much attention as our mineral collection which surrounds them. Back then I felt the chairs would best express that our geologists really know rock. It takes time to convince visitors to sit and once they do its hard to get them up again because they are so relaxed and comfortable.
I look forward to the same thing happening to me by my pool.”- Hal Coon, Dallas, TX
“Our outdoor furniture is doing great! Our decision to purchase your furniture was the smartest decision we could have made. No maintenance! We can just enjoy it without having to fuss over it. It looks great year-round!”
Best regards, Melissa Dowling
“It was great to see you and meet your lovely wife Jill at the Evergreen festival. Ever since we purchased our first stone chair from you we have been waiting to expand our secluded patio so it could fit a second chair. As you can see from the enclosed picture the patio is finished and we are ready to replace that tacky plastic chair with a matching chair for Rebecca. All our family and friends love to relax up on the patio in the big stone chair. They can’t believe how comfortable it really is. We can’t wait to hear that Rebecca’s chair is done so we can sit up there together on Sunday mornings and read the paper or spend a late afternoon watching the sun set behind Pikes Peak.” Mark Harry, Colorado Springs, CO
Dien and I meet Dwayne at the Beaver Creek Art Festival and liked the looks and “ great comfort feel “ of his patio chairs. We had 4 chairs and a coffee table bought before the opening of the first day of the festival. We needed “heavy” outdoor furniture for our patio in our Dallas high rise condominium. Due to wind gusts in the downtown “canyons” this was a must. Dwayne delivered them personally on his way to a Houston event. Upon delivery, he did a great job on setting the furniture up and claimed that if it blew off our patio he would personally come pick it up!!! Rest assured, it is today exactly where he left it. We would highly recommend his work from a beauty, practical and conversation art piece. All of our guest are highly impressed. —Buddy Clarke, Dallas TX
I met Dwayne and Jill while on business and vacation in Park City, UT in 2009. I fell in love with his Stone furniture creations the moment I saw them. I had recently converted our outdoor furniture to all iron furniture with no cushions. It is about the only way to keep furniture out in the elements. Living in Texas is very rough on outdoor furniture. The heat and relenting sun shortens the life of cushions and paint dramatically. I had kept his brochure and signed up for their newsletter which I read every month. I was trying to decide exactly what my first purchase would be. Since I was not ready for new furniture, we decided on a memorial bench for a side courtyard and garden that my wife keeps in memory of our late son. When I showed her what Dwayne and I came up with, she was elated. Dwayne had it etched exactly like we wanted and made sure it was crated and shipped carefully. We put it in place in 2011 and are continuing to create a space around it. It is truly a beautiful way to remember a loved one.
After this purchase, Dwayne and Jill created their Wine Buddy tables. I, again, fell in love with them and knew exactly how many I wanted. We purchased 5 to compliment our furniture areas by our outdoor fireplace and under our porch. They are perfect for everything. I had one damaged in transit and worked with Dwayne to get a replacement stand that was bent. No problems. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with these fine folks. They will do everything in their power to please you and make exactly what your heart desires. I actually cannot wait for my iron furniture to finally wear out. I want a stone furniture sitting area around my fireplace one day. Thank you Dwayne and Jill. Working with you has been a real pleasure. Best of luck in the future.—K. Ferris Daingerfield, TX.
“I’ve been excited about your furniture since seeing pieces during an Art Fair in Jackson WY several years ago. What a pleasant surprise to discover how comfortable the chairs and benches really are! You produce an excellent product which is esthetically attractive as well as functional. I might add enduring to that list, too.” – P L Sorensen, West Des Moines IA
“Best wishes to all those who create such great products!”
“After visiting a friend in Missouri, I absolutely fell in love with Stone 2 Furniture!!! This furniture is well built to withstand the weather and much more durable than anything I have ever seen! The looks are unique and elegant, yet rustic and comfortable! I will be getting a set in the very near future of my own! I have asked my friend if I can visit just to relax in her Stone 2 Furniture patio set again, lol! If anyone is looking for comfort and durability this is perfect!! “—Amy Johnsonville, IL
“When someone first sees the Stone Furniture the comments generally are how terrific they are for the setting. In other words that there was a certain fit with the Mountain and the location. When the furniture is used, the surprise is the unexpected comfort of the combination of mass and stone into the furniture. The comfort comes from, in my perception, the furniture being built with a sound understanding of the engineering needs. It also interfaces well with the human utilization and the use of appropriately selected sound/strong materials. In addition, the furniture can be expected to last in what can be a harsh environment for a long time. Finally, the combination of size, mass, natural materials results in an unexpected beautiful set of furniture and a satisfied customer.As one might expect, the size and weight almost requires a one time placement. This was also appropriately and satisfactorily considered and placed on delivery. “—G. Montry Evergreen, CO
My tables came the other day and we love them! They are “wicked awesome” (as we say here in Boston)! Carol, my wife was blown away by them. The stands look like branches or a vine….they came out better than I expected. So thank you for doing such a great job. Now I have some Dwayne Cranford originals at my house! All my best to you and your family. Sincerely. Derek
