Abner Henry and Stanford Furniture
The J. Banks Collection is a line of casegood and upholstery pieces designed by Joni Vanderslice and manufactured by Abner Henry and Stanford Furniture. Joni’s inspiration for the pieces comes from her continuous travel to different regions for J. Banks’ projects. Looking to fill a niche she felt was vacant, the designs are comfortable, functional and timeless. Meant to be utilized in both contemporary and traditional settings, as well as residential and hospitality venues; Joni plays with scale and proportion. Luxury without pretense, attention to detail, and a blending of the old and new are signature elements that are found within the J. Banks Collection. The collection is available nationwide to-the-trade and through high-end furnishings retailers.
J. Banks Design collaborated with Kravet to create Tanzania – a line of ethnically inspired performance fabrics and trims inspired by Joni Vanderslice’ s many trips to Africa. The graphically stunning patterns and textures emulate traditional African tribal designs. The patterns and textures of Tanzania beautifully mimic Kente clothes from Ghana, wood carvings from Zanzibar and the colors of the Serengeti Desert. Kravet has committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from the Tanzania Collection to The Valentine Project. For more information, visit www.valentineproject.org.
