Starting in 1979 in Arizona, 2nd Ave Design offers couture services in iron lighting and home accessories. With the largest selection of styles, hand finishes, shade options and crystal choices, 2ND Ave can create exactly the look you want. When you buy from 2nd Ave. Design, you can feel confident that you will receive a quality product made to your specifications, delivered in a timely manner. Their handcrafted iron products grace homes and hospitality facilities all over the world. The history of 2nd Ave starts in a Philadelphia snowstorm when Sheldon Nitzky, an independent lighting sales representative, decided it was the final straw. “That’s it, he said, “We’re moving to Arizona and I’m starting a high-end, lighting showroom and mail order business.
Arriving in Arizona, Sheldon discovered that the Wild West mentality was still riding high. No one wanted to sell this newest pioneer any product for his showroom. Angry, frustrated and needing to earn a living for his family, Sheldon said, “If no one’s going to sell me product, I’m going to make it myself!” The very next day he bought $2,500 worth of used sheet metal equipment. Serendipitously, an out-of work, sheet metal worker came knocking at the door.
“Can you make lanterns?” asked Sheldon.
“I can make anything if I have a pattern.” Said Steve. And so it began.
Within a short time, Steve and Sheldon’s lanterns were seen on the finest homes all over the Wild West. Another fortuitous event happened which changed the company forever. A master blacksmith from Germany arrived looking for employment. He and Sheldon collaborated to design iron products from the most exquisite of classic European designs. A forge was ordered from Germany and the blacksmith began to ply his trade. Now, exquisitely turned chandeliers came from the small factory and the fires of the forge ignited a passion for creating beauty and superior product. Once again, another terrific moment of serendipity happened when a lighting representative visiting Arizona from Dallas invited the small company to show their product in his showroom at the World Trade Center. The overwhelming reception the company received at the show determined the next step forward for 2nd Ave. Design. 2nd Ave. Design launched a national product line in 1987 playing a major role in heightening the growing recognition of American-made, handcrafted products. Here's their product listing: ACCESSORIES, BAKERS RACKS, BATH LIGHTS, BEDS, CEILING MOUNTS, CHANDELIERS, COCKTAIL TABLES, CONSOLE TABLES, DINING TABLES, END TABLES, ETAGERES, LAMPS, LANTERN/FOYER, MIRRORS, PEDESTALS, PENDANTS, POT RACKS, SCONCES, SCREENS, SUITE LIGHTS, TABLES.

For over a hundred years, A. A. Laun has specialized in making quality occasional furniture that can help you create a warm, comfortable feeling for your home.
Their commitment to craftsmanship, style, and good value began in 1892 when German settlers in Wisconsin formed a small company located midway between Milwaukee and Green Bay to provide jobs for the young people in the area. Woodworking or furniture making was the natural choice because of the local abundance of good lumber and their cabinet-making heritage.
Today that tradition still lives on. A.A. Laun continues to craft quality all-wood occasional tables, curios, entertainment centers, and accent items from northern red oak, American red cherry, and character-marked maple -- in virtually all styles and finishes. The relaxed feel of country, the classic elegance of traditional, the clean lines of contemporary, or the simplicity of shaker are featured at an affordable price. They make innovative expandable tables that unfold into dining units that can seat eight. They offer a hi-lo cocktail table that looks great in front of your sofa but can also be raised for entertaining. Each of their collections offer tables with ample storage capacity. And, they make some collections with tough wood-grained plastic-laminate tops that suit the needs of active young families. All of their tables have a durable lacquer finish that highlights the beauty of natural wood.

WWII brought many changes to the family farm of the 1920's, the most important being the tractor. But to a man who made a living selling horses to farmers, the need to diversify was becoming a matter of survival. So in 1950, at the age of 54, Arthur Houde went into partnership with a cabinetmaker to start up a furniture factory in the small town of Laurier Station in Canada. The following year he brought his son Paul, in to replace his partner and manage the business. Father and son shared the same vision of success. By the late 50s and early 60s, the company employed 25 workers and had a loyal Canadian customer base. It was incorporated under the name AP Furniture Industries, the initials of the two owner's first names, Arthur et Paul. From the beginning, AP Industries specialized in inexpensive imitation wood furniture for the mass market supplying such major chains as Woodhouse, Légaré and Sears. This high-volume production boosted sales and allowed the company to continually modernize and reach into new markets. By 1972, the company was unionized, operating another furniture plant, a sawmill and an upholstering plant and reaching even stronger into the US market. Daniel Benjamin was named general manager in1984. As the first manager from outside the family, he gave AP Industries a new orientation. Soon three quarters of production was destined for the US market. The imitation wood line of products was dropped in favor of higher-end collections designed for young families and children.

Adams Furniture has been trading for over 20 years, originally being based in London. Specialising in antique and country furniture, the dwindling sources of antique furniture forced a move into supplying authentic copies of original pieces. These copies are made from carefully chosen reclaimed timber and supplied to an international base of trade clients and now make up over 75% of the company’s total sales, perfectly complimenting the stocks of antique furniture still held by Adams.
Because of the many years of experience in the antique business, Adams feels that the range of designs and, particularly the finish, are very hard to beat. These strengths are coupled with extremely competitive prices and realistic delivery dates. The unique selection of styles and finish at the best price are coupled with the belief that there should be no compromise to quality.
One of the more recent developments in the furniture that Adams supply, is the conversion of antiques bought from all parts of the British Isles and Europe. Selected items are used to convert into the more practical items of furniture which suit today’s demands, without losing any of the authentic look.
Adams’ location in Huntingdon, England is located in a central position (one hour from the Newark Fair and one hour from London) and comprises of over 40,000 square feet of warehouse and showrooms. We are pleased to be able to arrange for clients to be collected from any of the major airports with London Stansted situated just 40 minutes away.
Although Adams Furniture try to hold as large a stock of original hand painted antique furniture as possible, any potential customers are encouraged to send us a shopping list of any items that they are looking for, so that we can then work to that list, thereby avoiding those all too frequent disappointing buying trips. There is no obligation to purchase any of the stock that we prepare.

Country oak to contemporary, American Drew offers wood styles to suit any taste at the mid-range prices. Good designs, good construction, good prices; in short, exceptional value. They may be best known for their Cherry Grove traditional collection that has been around since 1960, however, they have a competent staff of designers who have kept pace with what consumers are asking for in the 90's. Most recently they have picked up the license for Bob Mackie and Jessica McClintock. Collections offer bedroom and dining room selections and some also have occasional wall units and entertainment centers. Since American Drew dropped their MRP policy in July of 2002 I have considered them a Furniture Magazine Best Buy because of their selection, style, quality and price in their class ( mid price, mid quality). That makes them a great value.

They started their company over a decade ago with the idea that great looking, comfortable leather furniture could be custom made and delivered to customers in 30 days. They saw a retail situation where retailers were having to stock leather sofas to satisfy the desire to receive new furniture fast. At the time, customers were given a choice between black, cream, burgundy, or navy for a sofa they planned to sit on every day and have for at least 10 to 15 years. Not exactly a lot of options. American Leather offers 13 different styles of leather in over 70 different colors - from rich, deep browns to bright, bold banana; sleek, silver grays and bright, ruby reds. And best of all, they deliver it within 30 days. You get what you want, when you want it. Each piece is built to customer's individual requirements and shipped in 2-3 weeks. Although they have grown considerably, they still produce each puiece, one at a time, to the exact specifications of the customer. American Leather is the exclusive distributor of the Stetson brand leather upholstery.

One of the oldest sustained furniture companies in the world, Arthur Brett traces their roots back to 1870 when Jonathan Brett founded the company making furniture alongside his six sons. One of the sons, Arthur expanded the business into making reproductions of antiques, his life's passion. His family's expertise in restoring antiques gave the company the knowledge needed to produce new pieces fashioned on the scale and techniques of the originals. Over the years, they have grown as one of the premier manufacturers of high-quality, reproduction furniture as well as a natural move into contemporary furniture both stylish and practical. Features: dining, bookcases, upholstery, desks and writing tables, boardroom and conference tables, console tables and paneling.

Any discussion of Arthur Brett is not complete without mentioning Bespoke commissions. Bespoke produces custom pieces of furniture sold all over the world for people who appreciate the sheer quality of what may be perhaps some of the finest furniture made in the world. Whether a one-off dining chair painstakingly researched and hand made to match a long-discontinued antique set, a media center for an international corporate boardroom, leather seats for the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square or a V.I.P. table made of six varieties of rare, exotic veneers for a middle east conference center, Bespoke takes great pleasure and satisfaction in making what others can only dream of.

The story goes that some college students started making furniture out of old shipping crates. Their friends told their friends who told their friends, and before long a whole new look in furniture had been invented. Barn Door capitalized on that look with what is commonly called "crate" furniture. Virtually indestructible, it boldly goes where no furniture ever dared go before; into college dorms, kid's bedrooms, hunting cabins, rec rooms. Now you can even get sleep sofas, wall units and computer desks. Hey, do your whole house in it. Why not? Basement, living room, attic, why not even in the back of your new mini-van? Take those back seats out and voila! You've got a true utility vehicle. Available in two finishes. Barn Door also has a commercial/contract division.

Traveling around the world, from enchanting Java to the Serengeti, Kenneth and Dee Ann Bauer retrace the steps of the British and Dutch colonists in search of the original antiques of that era. These select pieces are then recreated using century old wood working techniques of the master craftsman. Bauer is the exclusive licensee of PGA clubhouse furniture.

Founded in Ontario, California in 1971. That's California not Canada. Wonder how many times they hear that? With the exception of the herringbone tabletops (which are white oak), all the wood on their furniture is Western Alder. Western alder is a close or fine grained hardwood similar to Cherry, Birch and Maple. It has a density or hardness comparable to Appalachian Soft Maple. It is extremely uniform in its light tan or honey color, and there is no color difference between heartwood and sapwood. This makes Alder much easier to match and finish, because kiln dried Alder presents no problem with sap, mineral streaks, dark color or stain. Every piece we manufacture is carefully milled and assembled authentically in keeping with the trends and techniques of the period. A few modern materials have been incorporated for practical reasons (i.e. to avoid shrinkage and warpage in unstable climate regions.) Mortise and tenon and dovetail joints are used where possible. Raised panels and tongue and groove planks are framed freely in dadoes on doors and panels to enable the wood to expand and contract during season changes. They use the term "bench made" to indicate that each individual piece is assembled from beginning to end at the bench of a skilled craftsman. This creates a sense of pride of craftsmanship and improves consistent workmanship dramatically. Their metal drawer slides are manufactured by Accuride who has a long history for providing the best quality drawer slides in the industry. Decorative hardware such as hinges, drawer pulls, locks, and escutcheons are all imported from France especially for Bausman. The secret that sets their look apart from our competitors is in the distressing. Surprisingly the training that goes into the distressing is as important and time consuming as that of the actual furniture construction. Products include: armoires, entertainment centers, kitchen chairs, tables, occasional furniture and some upholstery. This text was adapted from information provided on the Bausman and Company web site.

The Big Fish story begins with a serendipitous meeting of Melissa Van Hise, the owner of Big Fish, Inc., an art distribution company, and Roger Miles, the owner of a retail framing business. Their companies were merged and the new Big Fish, Inc., a framed wall decor manufacturer, was formed. When Big Fish, incorporated in 1989, it was a small shop representing artists in the Southeast. Today, Big Fish is an international framed art manufacturer distributing for artists from all over the world. At Big Fish, talented designers incorporate innovative framing techniques with a variety of images including hand-colored prints, limited editions, and posters, to create products that are not available from other sources. Hundreds of new trends setting designs are released semi-annually. Big Fish has journeyed abroad several times in the last year, successfully finding exclusive sources for new mats and moldings that are not available here in the States. Some of the most recent and most popular framing techniques are the addition of many hand-made frames, as well as gesso mats imported from England. These pieces create a look that is truly one-of-a-kind. According to Melissa Van Hise, owner and CEO, "We have a formula that really works. We have unique images and a great line of moldings for a fair price. Plus we offer incredible service and very efficient delivery. In June of 1999, Big Fish shifted gears again, and moved to a new location in Laurel, Maryland. We added lots of new offices (and personnel to match), and more than doubled our design and production areas. With our new facility, we hope to give you even faster turn around time, and with the added personnel, even greater attention to your individual needs.

BOMBAY FURNITURE
P.O. Box 161009
Fort Worth, TX 76161-1009
Tel: 800.829.7789
The Bombay Company began in New Orleans in the late 1970's, when a man named Brad Harper began selling inexpensive reproductions of 18th and 19th Century traditional English furniture. He advertised his mahogany-finished butler's tables and nightstands in magazines, then shipped the unassembled items to customers, who put them together in their homes. The name Bombay was Harper's idea. He associated the most glorious days of the British Empire with India, and its crown jewel, the city of Bombay. In 1978, Canadian Robert Nourse purchased the rights to develop The Bombay Company in Canada, which included access to the overseas supply channels Harper had established, mainly in Taiwan. Mr. Nourse decided to put Bombay's products into small stores in shopping malls. He believed the concept would attract "impulse shoppers" looking for an attractive product at a very good value. And because unassembled furniture took up so little space, the company didn't need a lot of extra storage room. Bombay's ready-to-assemble furniture also provided immediate gratification: customers could walk out with what they wanted rather than wait weeks for delivery. In 1980, Mr. Harper sold his mail-order business to Tandy Brands, Inc., a holding company in Fort Worth, Texas. Realizing the huge potential of the Bombay concept, Tandy Brands wanted to own the concept for all of North America and, in 1981, bought the Canadian rights from Mr. Nourse, with Nourse continuing to manage the Canadian operation. Bombay's recipe for success was convenience, value and fashion. Customers rapidly adopted the concept due to its fashionable, take-with product.
The Bombay Look
The style and tone of Bombay reflects a sophisticated look featuring classic and traditional furniture, as well as coordinating accessories and wall decor. Bombay quickly migrated away from merely reproducing antiques and began designing its own proprietary home furnishings while remaining true to the roots of its traditional style. The result was a unique, fashion focused and desirable product line. Responding to customers' requests beginning in the early 90's, Bombay expanded into larger pieces of furniture. Staying current with customers' needs and everyday lifestyle changes, Bombay now offers complete collections focused on the rooms that are most relevant to the customer---the home office, bedroom, dining room and family rooms. In the Fall of 1997, Bombay took an innovative step across the country with the introduction of an updated palm tree logo and the opening of new and/or renovated stores, reminiscent of turn-of-the-century mercantile buildings. The new look is much more in keeping with today's retail environment and results in a more pleasurable shopping experience for our customers.

Brandt started in 1901 in the Hagerstown, Maryland area. The company went out of business in 1985, but a few years ago, a couple of former employees bought the company and restarted production. Many of my readers write me asking about Brandt furniture they've inherited or purchased at estate sales. I regret I can't tell you any value for your furniture, my expertise in is new furniture. I've included the factory contact information, but I can also tell you they won't know the value of your furniture either. They'd like you to buy new pieces from them! There is one anecdotal story about Brandt that made them infamous. In 1953, at the height of the Cold War, Julius and Ethel Rosenburg were executed for treason. The only concrete evidence presented at their trial was a photograph of a Brandt table, in the hallway of the Rosenburg house, which was supposedly used to photograph nuclear secrets which were then passed on to the Soviets. The Rosenburgs claimed their innocence, the Brandt company said they could have done without the negative advertising and the story is still around today.

British Traditions is a manufacturer of authentic European country repoduction furniture.
Founded in 1988, British Traditions is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. Their market niche is making new furniture that looks genuinely antique and offering it at very reasonable price points. That coupled with an emphasis on design and an attention to detail sets them apart from their competition. Their London Library cabinet, a top seller introduced three years ago, requires nearly 150 individually-applied pieces of moulding. Sturdy mortise-and-tenon construction and dovetailed drawers are standard; tables feature handsomely designed and detailed turnings. The company also offers more than 20 standard finishes, ranging from a hand-applied, traditional English wax finish through painted and distressed alternatives to the currently popular "crackles", to "faux" finishes requiring as many as a dozen separate applications. British Traditions has been uniquely successful in combining the best the past has to offer with a modern production approach to meet the needs and desires of today's furniture buyer.

January 1, 2002, British Century Designs Ltd. (of London, UK and Fairfax, VA) changed their name to BritishFurniture.com to reflect their expanding business.
The factory in East London was founded in 1946 by Jacob Leigh, an established Master Cabinet Maker, as were his forbears. From comparatively small beginnings the firm has grown into a successful business where 3 generations of Master Cabinet Makers have worked together to continue a tradition of quality and service in the field of English Reproduction Occasional, Accent and Dining Room Furniture. The Leigh Family traces there heritage back to the famous Russian Birch groves, in which they used to manage for the Czars. Today the factory receives much of its wood from those same forests!
The Collections:
The English Reproduction collection comprises over 200 different items including: Dining Room Furniture, Bookcases, Wine Tables, Hall Furniture, Secretaries and Desks, Occasional and Accent Items. In addition there is an ever-expanding Home Office and Home Entertainment Collections as well as models exclusively made for storage (e.g. video, audio tapes, compact discs). The factory in London has the ability for its contracts division to produce items of furniture to its customer’s specifications, whilst retaining the authentic traditional appearance of true English Reproduction Furniture. Many successful projects have been completed around the world including: Hotels, Offices, Bars, Restaurants, Clubs and Conference Centers.
The collections offered by BritishFurniture were originally developed for the better department store trade, and sold exclusively through larger department stores in Europe, Japan and the America’s. However, it was determined that there was an opportunity to serve the designer and smaller home furnishing dealers, whom could not purchase large containers of furniture, by establishing a warehouse in North America. BritishFurniture also goes another step further than most “Name Brand” better furniture companies. Because each item is individually bench crafted, their customers do not have to wait 6-12 months in order for the factory to save money by doing a large run. Often, Special Orders ship within 12 weeks or less.

Outdoor and patio furniture in various metals for residential and contract use. Brown Jordan was started in 1945 by Robert Brown and Hubert Jordan. Their design concept was to make new and innovative furniture that was built to last a lifetime. Today, Brown Jordan continues in that tradition. Not only do they continue to win design awards for their innovation and beauty, but their quality of construction is recognized as one of the best in the industry. There are restrictions to their warranty because so much of their furniture is used in commercial settings but for the residential user you can figure on this warranty: Aluminum frame and finish- 15 years, resin and wood- 5 years, wrought iron= 1 year, straps- 5 years, fabrics- 1 year. We are not a Brown Jordan dealer and are not involved in the pricing, displaying or quoting of product specifications about Brown Jordan. Brown Jordan is a division of Brown Jordan International

Solid wood furniture, made in America. There are fewer and fewer companies that can proudly make that claim anymore. Based in in Whitefield, New Hampshire Brown Street enjoys a long history of making quality solid wood furniture in bedroom, dining room, entertainment centers, occasional and home office. Features include dovetail drawers, pegged doors, mortise and tenon joints and solid ledger panels... isn't that how good furniture should be made? With the flood of imports hitting the country and the increasing loss of companies that produce furniture in the U.S, one wonders how Brown Street can survive, much less compete. The answer lies in their committment to traditional New England standards, state of the art technology and a loyal base of customers. One of the most delightful things about the company is the available variety of stained and painted finishes, fifteen at last count. You can't get that option with import furniture. Colors include varying shades of pine, oak and cherry with a few premium painted colors available for an additional charge. You will especially appreciate Brown Street when you compare the price of their furniture to some of the sorry-quality stuff we see in the mail order catalogs and the large furniture chains. No, I don't get paid by Brown Street, but it does irk us to see what you folks are having to pay for junk, when there are still great companies like Brown Street out there consistently making good furniture for good prices. Hence - a great value!

Canadian manufacturer of dinette and dining room furniture. I believe they are one of North America's leading solid wood casual dining manufacturers. They are often imitated but never duplicated. Several of the world's leading brand names with custom color casual dining collections use Canadel to make their products because they know the company makes the best products for the best price. But if you want to cut out the middle-man, just buy it direct from a Canadel dealer. All items are availble in your choice of solid birch or select red oak. Select is a superior grade of lumber and is more expensive than birch which explains the upcharge when selecting oak. Choices include traditional, contemporary and country designs that are durable, stylish and easy to live with. There are many exceptions because of design limitations or with everything, but generally here are some of their many options:

  • 8 table leg options
  • 8 pedestal base options
  • 39 antiqued or distressed matte finish colors at a 10% upcharge
  • 23 colors of stain
  • 16 painted (solid) colors for birch - there are application exceptions
  • over 2000 atble options with 333 different chairs
  • 61 china bases and matching tops
  • all chinas available in 38:, 48:, 54" 60" or 72"
  • china styles have matching corner cabinets, pottery cabinets, dry goods pantries and servers
  • all furniture is hand-sanded, hand crafted and hand rubbed
  • all finishes are baked on catalyzed lacquer finishes fortified with nitrocellulose to resist marking and scratching
  • English dovertail joints are standard
  • table tops are 3/4" thick solid wood
  • wood table glides are standard on rectangular and oval tables
  • steel ratchet gear glides are standard on pedestal tables
  • over 99 counter (24") and bar (36") stools available
  • many more options and choices are available depending on the style
  • Corian and Zodiaq tops
My only complaint with Canadel is that they have the most restrictive Internet policy I know of. Dealers are not allowed to give out prices via email to their customers, or even mention on their own websites that they are a Canadel dealer. I understand their rationale, to protect their largest dealers who don't want you comparing prices.

What began as a simple business deal between a brassware importer in Mississippi and an exporter in Taiwan has since evolved into one of the leading manufacturers and importers of upscale home accents and reproductions. It all started in 1977 when Mr. and Mrs. G.L. Edwards decided to create a brassware gift and home accessory import company in Jackson, Mississippi. That same year, Simon Shen formed a brassware export company in Taipei, Taiwan and quickly became one of Castilian Imports' vendors. After a solid 12-year business relationship, the Edwards sold Castilian Imports to Mr. and Mrs. Simon Shen. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Shen relocated the company to Houston, Texas and set about expanding and enhancing its offerings. By 1992, Castilian Imports had moved out of the giftware sector and into home décor with a growing selection of higher-end home accessories. New mediums were also introduced into the line as brassware was soon joined by crystal, glass, wood and silver. To communicate the new direction and versatile product selection, the company initiated an aggressive sales and marketing campaign in 1992, which was followed by the launch of a national advertising campaign in 1997. The industry obviously liked what it saw as Castilian Imports experienced exponential sales growth during the period - more than 800% between 1992 and 1999. Further strengthening its position in the home accents market, the company opened its own national showroom at the International Home Furnishings Center in High Point, NC in 1999. By this time, Castilian Imports was also represented by its regional sales force through showrooms in other major mart buildings across the country, including AmericasMart Atlanta, the Dallas Market Center, San Francisco Market Center and the L.A. Mart. Today, Castilian Imports is in the process of expanding its facilities to keep pace with the rapid growth. A 10-acre site in Houston was acquired in 2000 and construction to begin in March 2002 on a new office and warehouse. In addition, the company continues to fine-tune and enhance its operations to insure that customers always receive the quality designs and customer service that have become the company's hallmarks.

Handmade wrought iron furniture built in much the same way it was generations ago. The first thing everyone looks for in metal are occasional tables, and Charleston Forge has them: traditional, contemporary, and eclectic. But they also have Baker's racks, bookcases and TV stands in contemporary and traditional designs with metal, glass and oak shelves. Also choose from sleigh beds, canopy beds and poster beds, Shaker style barstools with swivel seats, contemporary dining chairs, quilt racks, settees, pedestals and much more. An all around line for the hot look in metal. Available in 10 metal finishes, 7 oak finishes. Custom colors are available as well as custom metal work. Charleston Forge recently invested in a finishing system which, according to their president, "is not only 100% environmentally safe, but will also provide the most durable baked-on finish available." The story of how this company rose from near bankruptcy to leader in the metal industry is an inspiring tale that should be in the Reader's Digest. Their blood, sweat and tears have produced a great product made with integrity and pride. This company made a fine reputation the old fashioned way- "They earned it." They especially deserve your consideration today because of their committment to continue manufacturing their products, at a competitive price, in the U.S.. Although price is certainly important when considering your next purchase, you should also consider that in this category especially, metal, the flood of inferior quality imports is making companies like Charleston Forge prove to be an exceptional value.

Although they only started in business in 1994, Chatham Furniture is already putting pressure on older, more established companies because of their emphasis on making solid wood furniture, in the U.S., at great prices and in a good selection of styles. The list of their construction features is impressive: 3/4" solid wood tops, sides and drawer fronts - no veneers. Tongue and groove construction and extra strong mortise and tenon joints. Corners are mitered for invisible joinery, their bases are a full-base construction, something not usually seen in this price range. All drawers are sanded, stained, sealed & lacquered inside with a snag-free finish that protects your clothes. Chatham uses solid brass hardware, not plated and a floating construction, a technique that prevents warping and "racking." Those are just some of the hidden details which give each piece its own unique look, a hand-made quality at a mass-assembly price. For the full list of quality features check out their web site.

Some of you kids will be too young to remember this, but back when the Beatles were hot it was also groovy to sleep on a waterbed. That's when Classic Corporation got their start, 1971, a great year by any standards. Everyone should experience a king-size single bag waterbed at some time in their life just to see how far we've come. It's like visiting Colonial Williamsburg, or Historic Deerfield, or an old Spanish Mission. "Wow," the kids say, "people actually lived like that?" Yes, and they thought it was bad. (Bad as in the sense it is used today, bad means good.) Anyway I digress. Classic Corporation was one of the leaders in the industry back then making waterbeds and waterbed products. You don't see too many waterbeds these days, and you see even fewer waterbed manufacturers. Fortunately, at least with one company, the concept of floating off to sleep on a cushion of water, or even air, has been kept alive. In 2000, Comfort Classics underwent a reinvention of itself to become Classic Sleep Products. A company driven by technology, innovative products and doing what they know best - sleep. They introduced a new line of latex and elastic memory foam mattresses in eight levels of comfort and price. The top mattress is covered with the finest cotton products from Belgium and filled with Joma wool from New Zealand. Check out their site for a dealer in your area. Although you probably haven't heard of them, they compete head to head with the best advertised names selling adjustable air mattress and adjustable beds, yes they also make tube design water beds. AND, hold it, and, I must add, this is the cool part, if you long for the good old days of drifting off to sleep while dreaming you're quietly floating in a raft down a lazy meandering river on a warm summer night, Classic Sleep Products still makes six different hardside waterbeds. Forget the sleep number system, forget the coils and springs and wires, this is pure waterbed cool.

Born over 100 years ago from the vision of entrepreneur and founder John Cochrane. John recognized opportunity to open a wood product manufacturing facility that could produce showcases and mantels. He became an instant success as mantels were sold by the trainload. By the early 1930's, the production of dining room furniture constructed of oak and pine assumed the role of leading product. As sales increased, the demand for early American dining room came into the picture and hard maple became the predominant material. Today's Cochrane Furniture Company has a much more diversified line that includes bedroom and upholstery with wood materials such as maple, oak, cherry and ash. Their reputation for excellent mid priced quality and value come from ageless construction techniques coupled with skill and pride of the craftsman. Construction techniques include:all wood drawer construction with finished interior; English and French dovetails drawers with wood on wood drawer glides; full wood dust proofing and wood backs on all cases; solid wood floating construction to permit the natural movement of tops, sides, door and bed panels reducing the splitting of wood during season changes.

Onorato Comitti, the founder of the company, came to England in 1845. As a skilled instrument maker he sought a new future in the land that was enjoying unprecedented prosperity generated by the Industrial Revolution. Mr Comitti established his workshops in London as a maker of barometers and related instruments and in a very short time his beautiful products were gracing the homes of discerning customers. It was during the late Victorian period that the company diversified into clockmaking. Many of the styles made in these early days continue to be available today. They are recognized as English classics and sought after as valuable antiques. Comitti remains a family run business. Today, the company is run by the grandsons of George Barker who married Louisa Comitti and joined the business in the 1890s. The Managing Director, Simon Barker, believes that the longevity of the business and its continued success is a tribute to the policy of carefully blending age-old craft skills with the most up to date technology, and the family nature of the company. “From generation to generation, we have looked to develop our skills and design a collection of clocks and barometers that will satisfy the aspirations and needs of our customers. We take great pride in our reputation for integrity, quality and service; indeed, we regard it as an imperative for our continued success in the next millennium.” Quotes and content from the factory website.

I could spend weeks driving around Berks County Pennsylvania. The old stone houses, the farm buildings, the gardens, everything about it is so untouched and unspoiled. I hope the town council manages to hold the developers off as long as possible, it would be a shame to see this beautiful slice of American life turned into tacky track houses. How did I get on that? Oh, yeah. Right there in the middle of Berks County is this wonderful antique store that I could spend hours and hours browsing through. Just to breath the air slows life down and puts things into a better perspective. Well, anyway, a couple weeks ago I was walking through the store and I kept stopping at their upholstered pieces. They were beautiful in their simplicity and so perfect for the store because of their design and fabrics. I assumed they were custom made because the quality looked so good. Surprise suprise. I found out they were made by Country Manor Furniture in Maiden, North Carolina. The store owner was kind enough to let me look at their catalog. Everthing in there looked like it came straight out of an antique store, only instead of having to buy an actual antique that couldn't be sat on for fear of falling apart, this furniture was made to be lived in. And the fabrics... perfect. The colors and the patterns make time stand still.

Through dozens of steps, a finish is applied that should last for many generations, which is exactly what Craftique had in mind.

Exquisite designer lamps in stained glass and hand made designs. "I remember the first time I ever sold a tiffany lamp," a salesman told us.

"I pulled out the price list and my jaw dropped when I saw that this little lamp sold for $1800. The customer was delighted and without flinching said, 'I'll take two.'"

The word Dauphine is French and is the title given to the wife of the future King. It is also the name of a street in the New Orleans French Quarter, the city where the company's owners were living when Dauphine Mirror Company was founded. Considering the poor quality of materials used by most mirror companies today to cut costs, it is a pleasure to tell consumers how Dauphine makes their mirrors. They use kiln dried wood which helps prevent warping and splitting. This is in contrast to the plastic or blown-poly used by many companies. (Which by the way, are almost impossible to repair or refinish.) From here I think you would enjoy a quote from their web site, "Using centuries old carving techniques, each frame is hand crafted, requiring up to five weeks to complete. All finishes are applied by hand. Gilt finishes incorporate fine sheets of gold metal leaf imported from Italy. Once gilded, the frames are rubbed to allow the "bole" to peek through and then "antiqued" through the use of various patinas. Because each frame is hand finished, there will be a slight variation in every piece. If a pair of any item is ordered, they will be finished by the same craftsman simultaneously to ensure consistency. They bevel every mirror that can or should be beveled. The only time that a mirror is not beveled is when there is a border or ornate protrusions that would create a very sloppy appearance if we were to try and follow the border with a bevel. Beveling is done both by machine (straights) and by hand (curves)."

Davis Cabinet is one of my prime picks for quality furniture, made in the U.S.. They have been producing fine solid wood furniture since 1929. The history of this company's beginning and how they overcame great adversity to stay afloat despite the Great Depression and a disastrous flood is on their website and makes great reading. Davis has the distinction of still producing one of the longest continuous production furniture collections in the world, Lillian Russell. You can find the Lillian Russell collection as well as their other distinctive groups on the website. I highly recommend this company if you're in the market for a traditional victorian, french or American look.

Great quality leather upholstery company with a full range of designs and leather colors. They are just below the high end companies in price but very close in quality. They have over 23 years of experience as leather specialists. They back up their quality with a ten year warranty on construction. This isn't hard to do because they use harwood frames, dowelled with corner blocks glued and screwed in place. When you compare the higher price of Distinction with a similar look in a mail order catalog or a department store you have to remember that with Distinction you are really going to get what you pay for. Five year warranty on the top grain European leather, two year warranty on cushions and a one year warranty on recliner and sleeper mechanisms. Distinction has over 30 sleepers available, all with 5 inch thick Restonic mattresses. If you want options you have nine different brass nails to choose from, leather pillows in kidney, round square and transitional shapes and three different cushion core options. Bottom line: before you get dazzled by the low price of import leather furniture, compare the quality, compare the choices and remember that dollar for dollar, the "Made In The USA" value of Distinction beats the competition hands down.

Earth and Elements is a division of Rowe. Imagine upholstery that mimics the natural colors and textures of nature. Now imagine that upholstery isn't sold through mail order catalogs at inflated prices. Imagine that upholstery isn't of questionable origin or quality like it is from unknown Internet companies or catalogs. Imagine that upholstery is available from a company like Rowe with a long history of customer satisfaction and value. That's Earth and Elements - a collection of upholstered sofas and chairs in slipcovers and fabrics that make you feel excited about buying furniture again. Frames are made of kiln dried hardwood and wood laminate and constructed not to warp, twist or split, and best of all, they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The seat springs are 8-way hand-tied coil springs and the backs and decks use high-carbon steel sinuous wire springs. Both spring systems are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Earth & Elements is using a new environmentally sensitive natural product fiber for their seat cushions that we think you're going to be hearing much more about as other companies get on board.

The look of top design furniture without the price. Eastern Legends imports bedroom and dining room collections that are so great looking only you will know you didn't have to pay a fortune. Think of the expression, "If you can't beat them, join them." That's what Eastern Legends has done in the upper end high design category. They aren't going to overtake the top name brands so they make furniture that looks like theirs but at much lower prices. We compared a bedroom set from a leading manufacturer that retailed at $18,000 with a similar looking set from Eastern Legends. The quality was similar and the look was similar, but the Eastern Legends price was under $10,000.

I've seen customers in a store walk through an area that had Ekornes-type chairs testing for the "ah" factor. Without knowing the name brands or reputation they kept going back to the Ekornes because it was clearly more comfortable. There really is something to the design that tricks the mind into saying, "OK it's time to relax." Unfortunately, as of April 2004, Ekornes is still enforcing Miniumum Retail Pricing.

One day they were making a wonderful selection of full and queen size sleepers at very competitive prices, and the next day they were gone! Well, we don't know exactly why it happened, but it turns out several years ago they changed their name to Ellis Home Furnishings and were then were bought out by Klaussner. This is good news because the basic company and their products remained intact, i.e. full and queen sleepers at very competitive prices, and they have strong financial backing to help them continue to expand and improve.

Flat Rock Furniture is a leading maker of hand crafted Appalachian furniture. Made in America by skilled craftsman they continue to lead in producing historic designs and new designs for collectors of this venerable American design. For over three hundred years Americans have constructed furniture from tree saplings. These naturally occurring small trees are stunted, from the shade of larger trees in the forest. They commonly are thirty to forty years old with diameters less than six inches. Abundant in supply, their dense wood is perfect for steaming and bending to create perhaps the strongest wood furniture made today. The choice specie of wood for this purpose is Hickory a dense and fibrous wood valued for its strength and durability. Known as nearly indestructible, Hickory Furniture has become prized by collectors who seek examples of early American hand crafts. Since 1986 Flat Rock Furniture has been the preferred maker of Hickory Furniture. Combining craftsmen and modern manufacturing techniques they create a superior quality rustic furniture. With renowned furniture designer Jim Peed they set the standard for rustic furniture design. By combining quality with classic rustic designs, their custom design service and Jim Peed's new designs, Flat Rock Furniture offers more choice and value than any competitors. Flat Rock Furniture is not only found in homes across America but in hotels, restaurants, resorts and private clubs throughout the world. Their broad range of designs, custom goods, fabrics and finish selections allow you to create a setting that is a pleasing, comfortable and a tasteful reflection of your style.

FLORIDA

Florida Furniture Industries, Inc. went out of business in 2003. I understand from the Chamber of Commerce in Palatka, Florida where the factory was located, that Rooms To Go took over a lot of their inventory. Don't call Rooms To Go though asking for Florida Furniture, everything was simply absorbed into their company and I doubt anyone at a local store level would know what or who you were talking about.

Florida played an important role in the industry until they closed shop. It was chartered on August 1,1930 BY Howard L. Gardner, Sr., Fount H. Rion, Sr., and Charles M. Tanner, Jr. They started making cypress outdoor garden furniture including wooden benches, chairs, ornamental fencing and rose trellises. In 1933, with the great depression at its worst, garden furniture was considered a luxury by the consumer. About that time, because of poor sales of garden furniture, Florida Furniture converted the factory to production of kitchen, breakfast room, novelty tables, and chairs. Around 1936 they added bedroom furniture, and by 1942 the line consisted of bedroom, breakfast room, and dinette furniture. In 1942, production of furniture was sharply curtailed in order to devote production capacity to support the War effort. During this period Florida Furniture produced wooden parts for U.S. Coast Guard picket boats, and wooden machinery boxes and ammunition boxes for the U.S. Army.

After World War II the company began manufacturing only bedroom furniture and since that time Florida Furniture has been exclusively a bedroom case goods manufacturer and has become well known in the industry for all-wood construction in medium and low price ranges. At their height they employed about 700 in three manufacturing plants and sold to about 2,400 retail furniture stores, distributors, and rental companies in 40 states and Canada.

"Growing up in West Virginia, I lived in a contemporary house surrounded by tall trees and mountains. My brother and I spent many happy hours playing in an idyllic setting that includes a small, rocky creek that now bears my name—because I discovered that creek before my brother did. My love for nature and appreciation of design stems from these early days on Gat Creek. Ultimately, the days of my youth have had a significant impact on my career choices. In 1996, I purchased a small furniture company called Tom Seely, named for the founder who spent 40 years building antique reproductions, by hand out of solid wood. Because I am in the furniture business, conversations with friends often revolve around their desire to find a “different” kind of furniture. These friends are people who respect tradition but don’t necessarily want traditional furniture. What they seem to want is the quality found in antiques, but they also express a desire to find furniture with clean, uncomplicated lines. They want the beauty and warmth of wood, yet in a more straightforward type of idiom. And so, I have taken these conversations to heart. The result is a new line of handmade furniture that I feel speaks to their lifestyles, while showcasing the natural beauty and warmth of wood. While made by the Tom Seely Furniture Company, this new furniture is a total departure both in style and attitude. What we built has caught on, and now we call it Gat Creek."

Hale was very good at design and published a catalogue of chairs and hardwood furniture two years before he purchased the Arlington factory. The Hale company continued to manufacture various lines of high quality furniture until its closing in 1992.

O.K., Haley & Carter aren't real people. But that doesn't matter, because they represent a composite of people like Haley & Carter. Young, mobile, hip, trendy, but sophisticated and discerning. Discerning enough to want better quality furniture than what you find from that huge furniture chain, sophisticated enough to want something other than cookie-cutter contemporary. The collection features two different looks, one dark mix of European and Empire styling with quite a bit of good looks for the money. The other is a lighter colored, transitional style that I have to admit is great looking. Haley & Carter is sold under the Lexington Home Brands name. Unfortunately, as of May 2004, Lexington is still enforcing MRP on this line.

In October 1943, after eight years working with furniture manufacturers in the Carolinas and Virginia as a sales representative of the Reliance Varnish Company and Central Glass Company, Hamilton Louder Bruce decided to try his hand at furniture manufacturing. Leasing a small building for $15.00 per month, he hired two helpers and started to manufacture canvas covered lawn chairs. Production amounted to 24 chairs a day.
Hammary's history can be traced back to 1943 when Hamilton Louder Bruce decided to try making furniture instead of selling it for other people. Starting with two helpers and a small building they began turning out 24 canvas covered lawn chairs a day. By 1947, Mr. Bruce knew he needed to head in another direction and turned his attention to the occasional table line. He took his idea to furniture stores along the east coast and to his great surprise brought home $200,000 in orders. A princely sum in 1947!
The Hammary of table is still easily recognized because of its emphasis on occasional table, home office and upholsterd furniture. Although Mr. Bruce began with mahogany table, the company now incorporates many types of wood as well as glass and leather into their styles. To stay with the time, the newest Hammary pieces are designed with today's TV, and audio/video needs in mind. Many of the entertainment centers can be configured to fit rooms of many settings. In the past several years, Hammary has been branching out into furniture from around the world with trunks, book table and hand-painted chests brought in from many exotic locations.
Hammary is a division of La-Z-Boy.

Every now and then, it is refreshing to know about companies or people who still do things right - with great integrity, pride and care in their work. While there are many companies like this in the furniture industry, sadly, they are getting fewer and fewer. One area in the furniture industry that is experiencing a widening gap between the top, most conscientious manufacturers and the cheap import lines trying to turn a quick buck is leather. It all started about ten years ago with the invasion of cheap leather imports from Italy and Mexico. Today, it seems everyone wants get in on the action. Well, fortunately not everyone. Companies like Hancock & Moore still hold to a standard that makes leather furniture a luxury item. Something to be earned. Not that it is out of reach of the average consumer. Quite the contrary. It is expensive, yes. But when one considers the quality of the goods it is really a value and a great buy. Their leather is hand selected from only the finest native hides. They look for consistency of grain which gives them the best surface for color uniformity and richness of hand (insider term for leather texture). They select only "A" grade wood materials such as mahogany, walnut, ash and cherry for the frames, and then use all the techniques that have come to be associated with top quality furniture construction.

Henredon was founded in 1945 by four men determined to build furniture of "custom quality." And today, over fifty years later, among people of discriminating taste, the name Henredon represents the best America has to offer.
The initial product line consisting of just three chests has mushroomed into hundreds of beautiful wood and upholstery designs for every room. From the one original case goods facility in Morganton, there are now also sizable manufacturing complexes in three other locations in North Carolina. Our original work force of seventy-five employees has grown to approximately seventeen hundred.
Henredon's underlying philosophy has always been to make quality furniture for the middle and upper-income end of the market. It reaches these consumers by distributing through better department stores, design studios and upscale furniture stores and by advertising in periodicals that cater to this clientele.
Folk wisdom in the furniture industry would have it that success depends upon product, people and programs and certainly Henredon has been blessed with all three. Henredon's unbroken leadership chain has extended from its founders: T.Henry Wilson, Ralph Edwards, Donnell VanNoppen, and Sterling Collet, through Michael K. Dugan, who became Henredon's fifth chief executive officer on November 1, 1987.
In the spring of 1996, Henredon became part of Lifestyle Furnishings International, the largest and most comprehensive home furnishings resource in the industry. In addition to Henredon, this family of companies includes such well-known brands as Drexel Heritage, Lexington, Universal, Berkline, BenchCraft, Maitland-Smith and Robert Allen Fabrics. And while Henredon has changed ownership, it will remain what it has been for generations; one of the most respected furniture companies in the industry. Setting the standards for distinction of design, for quality of manufacture and for the kind of pride and dedication to service that has been and will continue to be the major contributor to success.

Henry Link is a real person. During the 70's the furniture industry executive loved to travel in search of new and exotic styles and designs. Lexington popularized his most popular treasures in the casual, breezy "wicker" look. From the beaches of Costa Rica to the jungles of the Congo, the open, airy wicker style was a symbol of a carefree lifestyle that Lexington wanted to capture in practical designs that could be produced for the average consumer. They were more than successful and the name Henry Link became synonymous with quality and value in wicker. Today's Henry Link collection includes bedroom pieces in wicker, rattan, bamboo, metal, glass, stone, and leather and a wide range of styles. I'm disappointed that Lexington chose to use MRP pricing on this wonderful furniture, but even at that, it is still a good buy.

With roots dating back to 1881, Hickory White is one of the nation's oldest continuously operating makers of top quality furniture. In 1988 three fine companies merged to form what is now know as Hickory White. Hickory Manufacturing, begun in 1903, White of Mebane going all the way back to 1881 and Kaylyn upholstery, a relative youngster which got a start in 1956. The three companies combined strengths of manufacturing and distribution of furniture and upholstery. In 1997 Hickory White became part of the Sherrill companies. The most careful attention is given to every detail including English dovetail drawer construction, the finest solid hardwoods and premium veneers, hand rubbed and distressed finishes taking as many as 25 steps, eight way hand tied springs... in essence... all the qualities one would expect from furniture in a top class. We consider Hickory White a Best Buy in the furniture industry because they are so competitive in the upper end class.

Workmanship, quality, perfection, it's what Howard C. Miller insisted on when he founded the company in 1921. Even then, Howard Miller understood the need to create products that would be steeped in quality and value. He expected nothing less than the best. And it was only under those strict conditions that he allowed his name to grace every clock manufactured at their sprawling facility in Zeeland, Michigan. Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clock making by his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Howard developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has been un-compromised through three generations. They offer hundreds of items to complement any decor ranging from portable alarm clocks to desk sets to wall and mantel clocks to collectors cabinets to limited edition grandfather clocks. And in price ranges that may surprise you - from $5 to $15,000. No matter the price of the purchase, you have the same assurance that Howard C. Miller provided when he began offering clocks more than 70 years ago: "That quality be reflected both in the products we create, and in the people whose artistic talents we rely on to manufacture them."

Breuners filed Chapter 11 in July of 2004 and said they intend to close all their stores and liquidate their assets. This was a major blow to J. Royale who had a sizable investment in inventory and receivables with Breuners. The last word I heard as of July 27, 2004 J. Royale is closing indefinately. They were a high end manufacturer of sofas, sleep sofas, love seats, chairs and ottomans constructed with solid hardwood frames and fully upholstered. Known for their beautiful fabrics and styles, J. Royale was one of the true values in the furniture industry with great quality and reasonable prices. We hope they are able to recover because the industry cannot afford to lose such a great source of quality upholstery when we are being inundated with so much junk.

From the Jackson Furniture (Catnapper) website:

Born in 1903, Mr Ray Jackson left very humble beginnings in Cleveland, TN to set out on his own at age 16. After working for several years in an auto assembly plant in Ohio, he returned back South to Tennessee to try the chair upholstery business. After quickly learning the upholstery craft, he took the $30 in his pocket—ALL that was left after the banks closed during the Great Depression and started Jackson Furniture Company. The business grew and grew with expanded factories and more people hired and put to work. His $30 gamble paid off as by the 1970’s, he had over 1.3 million square feet of furniture manufacturing space in TN, MS, TX, and FL and was one of the largest family owned furniture enterprises in the USA.

His greatest turning point was determining the assembly line production of Platform Glider Recliners was the key to a "comfortable America" He took the knowledge from the automobile industry and applied it to Chair/Glider production. These same techniques are still used everyday in the plants as the culture still thrives under 3rd generation leadership.

Mr Jackson would often comment, Much of his success came from good old fashioned hard work and a dedication to giving employees an opportunity to "better themselves".

Today, Jackson Furniture remains focused in the USA. We have over 4 plants in the USA along with 1,000’s of employees and vendors committed to producing the most comfortable and longest lasting furniture that money can buy.

A lot has changed in the furniture industry since 1933. Recent developments, such as the closing of major textile plants in the U.S., have forced us to go overseas for products like fabrics and leathers that are no longer available here in mass quantities. The covers on our products may be made elsewhere, but for nearly all of our products, employees in our American factories build the frames and apply the cover. While many of our components, including our recliner mechanisms, are fabricated by our dedicated employees in this country, we also consider international suppliers and laborers for some parts, such as handles, massagers and swivel bases, in order to build long-lasting furniture at an accessible price.

At Jackson Furniture, we are investing in our plants and doing everything we can to remain a trusted, strong and competitive employer in the U.S. We are extremely proud of our roots and we look forward to providing you with American-made comfort and quality for many more years to come

You could count on one hand the number of large furniture companies who have gone out of business and then rose from the dust and wood chips to re-emerge, stronger and ready to take on the world. Jasper is one of those success stories. The official word is that in October of 2005 they will be showing a new line of Jasper products at the High Point furniture market. While not open to the public, the show is where the furniture world converges twice a year to buy what you will soon see in stores. The president, Robert Cribbs says the company will maintain and even improve on the high-standard of quality that was the hallmark of Jasper. The company has already rehired many of the original hand-painters, strippers and rubbers who gave this american-made product such a reputation. We say "Hurrah!" and welcome back.

JOHN WIDDICOMB
560 Fifth Street NW
Grand Rapids, MI 49504-5208
800.847.9433
In 1858 George Widdicomb, father of John Widdicomb, came from Devonshire, England to settle in Grand Rapids. He gathered together twelve craftsmen and set up a small cabinet shop which prospered from the start. His English training was different from the frontier training of the average small town cabinetmaker and his well made furniture found a ready market. The outbreak of the Civil War put a sudden end to the new enterprise, when the entire work force including his sons joined the Union army.
Following the war, George Widdicomb was joined by his four sons, John, Harry, William and George, Jr., and the business started up again. The trade, entirely local to start with, was quickly expanded. The Widdicomb name soon became known in Chicago, then East as far as Boston, Philadelphia and New York. In 1897, one of the boys, John Widdicomb, felt the need for a plan of his own and started in a small way making interior woodwork and fireplace mantels on a site across the street from that of his father. This building is part of the present plant.
Ralph Widdicombe, a nephew of John, had earlier become interested in the designing of fine furniture, and when his uncle branched out for himself, Ralph joined him. For fifty-three years until his retirement in 1951, all John Widdicomb Company furniture was designed by Ralph Widdicombe, known as the Dean of furniture designers. Ralph Widdicombe always retained the old English spelling of his name ending with the "e". Although Ralph Widdicombe will always be remembered best for his classical designs, he was awarded first prize for his Modern bedroom suite at the Paris Exposition in 1900. In 1924, working from models he had procured in Europe, Ralph Widdicombe introduced Louis XV Provincial designs which were the first of their kind to be made in this country, and started the wave of popularity for French Provincial that still continues. A bombe bureau, which was the first such design, is still a much sought after piece in the John Widdicomb line today.
The Widdicomb name, which had been shared by two manufacturers since John left his father in 1897, was brought together again in November of 1970, when John Widdicomb Company purchased the name and goodwill of the Widdicomb Furniture Company, the latter having ceased production several years previously. The John Widdicomb plant today occupies two city blocks and employs over one hundred fifty people. The John Widdicomb line includes over three hundred French, Italian, English, and Russian reproductions which are crafted in limited quantities -- all in the tradition of highest quality for which the Widdicomb name has been internationally known for over one hundred thirty years.
John Widdicomb furniture is available to interior designers through franchised showroom distributors in major cities in the United States and world wide.

KELLER FURNITURE
AL Keller left furniture residential furniture business January 2005 after acquiring Paragon Door Designs. They no longer have parts for any Keller furniture. They began by manufacturing spokes for wagon wheels, then complete wheels, and finally the wagons themselves around 1900. By 1931 Keller wagons were showing up China, The Philippines, and New Zealand as well as Europe, Russia and South Africa. By 1942 Keller was phasing out of the wagon business to make room for tractors and interstates. Like many companies, Keller survived the war years by producing needed supplies for the war effort. Among other things, they made walk-in ice boxes for Army kitchens, and Army vehicle bodies for General Motors. Small world isn't it? Following the war, Keller used its vast experience to quickly retool for peace and began making solid wood furniture.

KENT-COFFEY
Lenoir, NC In its day, Kent-Coffee was a very popular brand of furniture. It was reasonably well-made, sold in stores all over the East Coast and was priced so the average consumer could afford it. As Baby Boomers inherit grandmom's old furniture or clean out their parent's attic it is inevitable that a new generation gets their first exposure to the name. Hardly a week goes by that I don't get several letters that start out... "I just inherited a Kent-Coffey kitchen set. Can you tell me anything about them?"

Kent-Coffey was a furniture company in Lenoir, NC owned by Harold Coffey, a leading influence driving the North Carolina furniture industry in the early 1900's. He was friend, neighbor and competitor of such icons as James Broyhill and John Bernhardt. As tribute, his former home at the corner of Harper Avenue and Maple Drive in Lenoir has been preserved as a bed and breakfast Sharon Elizabeths.

I called the owners of the B&B who, it turns out, have been researching the company's history and would love to hear from any readers or former employees who have first-hand knowledge of Kent-Coffey's past.

Through the 60's Kent-Coffey made promotionally priced, but decent quality furniture. For unknown reasons, they were sold to the Singer Furniture Company, a subsidiary of the Singer sewing machine fame. Singer should have stuck with sewing machines because around 1997 the furniture division went bankrupt. In 2001, Kent-Coffey was named as co-defendant in a lawsuit brought by a former Singer employee suing over asbestos related illness.

After that the trail goes cold. I would love to hear from former Kent-Coffey employees who can fill in any of the blanks.

Since 1927 Key City has worked hard to maintain a standard of excellence and a reputation for great quality. The company has remained in family hands since it's founding by James Caudill, with the grandsons currently at the helm. It may seem quaint in today's business environment to find a family-owned manufacturing business still being run with the same core values that were in existence when the company was founded; but for the 200 employees at Key City those values are a source of great pride. Many of the people at Key City have been working there for decades, mainly because they like the family, but just as notable is the pride they have knowing they are producing a quality product in an industry that is importing more and more cheap furniture. With more than 400 products and 1200 fabrics your choices for Traditional, European, Provincial, Transitional or 18th century upholstery will be limited only by your imagination. Construction is very good with the standard padding, kiln dried double doweled, corner blocked and secured hardwood frames you would expect at an upper end price range for investment quality furniture. There are three comments I would add though. One, although there are five optional seats available it would be nice to see a multi-density cushion as standard instead of the 1.8 polyurethane one used. (Nothing wrong with that, but it is the same cushion used by competitors who don't come up to their standards in other areas - that's just my opinion.) Secondly, they use pocketed coils in the back. This is a high-end feature and should be noted by the consumer as a sign of quality. Third, they use a 10-way hand-tied coil for the seat. This is really unusual and quite exceptional in this price range, you can probably count on two hands the number of companies going to this level of detail. Some might say it is actually "overkill" but I say more power to them. When others are dumbing down quality, here is a company that is holding the line and maintaining an exceptional value for consumers.

KINCAID
"In 1946, George and J. Wade Kincaid began making cedar chests and wardrobes in a small building with five employees in Hudson, N.C. Over fifty years later, employing more than 1,400 workers in five plants, Kincaid is the world's largest manufacturer of solid wood residential bedroom, dining room, occasional, and entertainment furniture. The original manufacturing philosophy of George and Wade Kincaid is uncompromised. Their furniture collections are made of oak, ash, cherry, pine, and maple woods harvested in the continental United States. Kincaid continues to grow and expand. Attention to detail, style, quality, and manufacturing has contributed to Kincaid's tremendous success and wide spread demand. These gains were made possible in part from recent adjustments to plant layouts, addition of state-of-the-art machine technology and keen concern about quality by all employees. Direction and guidance is traceable to the original Kincaid family philosophies. Today, the company is steadily led by Steve Kincaid (Wade's son) as President. Kincaid Furniture Company, Inc., is now part of La-Z-Boy, Inc. This has added to the strength and to their potential development. La-Z-Boy is the third largest manfacturer of furniture in the industry, with annual sales exceeding $1.3 Billion. Taking a leading position in design and style, Kincaid has a broad base of collections that include cherry, pine, oak, maple and ash wood species. Again guided by the strong commitment to their heritage and their environment, Kincaid offers style, value, and finely crafted solid American wood products to join the leaders in the home furnishings industry."

KINDER-HARRIS
The story of Kinder-Harris begins in 1970. The journey has led the company from it's beginnings as a small art supply and custom frame shop in Stuttgart, Arkansas to a position as an internationally recognized design leader in the Home Furnishings Industry.

Framed art of unique beauty that is painstakingly created with unusual and unexpected effects are the hallmark characteristics that produced the initial demand from the market place. The industry's desire for even more innovation from Kinder-Harris led to expansion into accessories in 1985. In 1990, the company's own special touch was added to a line of lighting. All of these, framed art, lighting and accessories harmonize together perfectly in a room setting while maintaining the strength to stand alone as a focal point in the finest home.

The demand for excellence in creative design is just one aspect of the Kinder-Harris success story. Dedicated artisans working with the best materials in a state of the art production facility are assurance of receiving only the highest quality products. To offer these elements of design and quality, Kinder-Harris has developed a world class sales team of enthusiastic professionals.

Tel: (919) 563-3531
It was 1904 when Kingsdown began making mattresses by hand using state-of-the-art materials such as corn shucks and horsehair insulation. Ninety-five years later, the state-of-the-art materials have evolved into space age technology, but one thing hasn't changed-Kingsdown mattress sets are still handcrafted, often by the descendents of those early pioneers who were Kingsdown's first employees.
Known as the leader and innovator in the industry, Kingsdown has created sleep systems designed to provide the healthiest sleep possible. Independent laboratory tests, in fact, have proven that Kingsdown sleep systems give much better spinal support.
After research from some of the world's most renowned sleep clinics revealed that proper body support and reduced pressure are essential to healthy sleep, Kingsdown conducted an exhaustive engineering project to perfectly combine these two essential elements into a single sleep system.
Through the extraordinary craftsmanship of Kingsdown's dedicated professionals, intense care is taken to assure unparalleled quality at every step in the creation of its sleep systems. From concept to fabrication, a Kingsdown sleep system will go through numerous check systems, all with the goal of HEALTHY SLEEP for the end user.
In a quest for a good night's sleep, not even the smallest detail escapes the eyes and hands of the Kingsdown craftsmen. Details such as Kingsdown's delivery of more usable sleep surface-up to 15% more-which means less disturbance for a good night's sleep. Kingsdown's patented Flexatron cushioning is produced from only man-made fibers and baked in ovens at 350 degrees to create an allergy-free, mildew-resistant and odor-free sleep environment, unlike the bacterial supportive natural by-products used in most other bedding sets.
Components from England, France, Belgium and Switzerland along with methodologies from the U.S., Canada, and Germany have been brought together to create Kingsdown's distinctive sleeping environments-the ones by which all others are judged. By delivering HEALTHY SLEEP to customers for almost an entire century, Kingsdown has become one of the largest independent manufacturers in the nation.
Headquartered in Mebane, North Carolina, Kingsdown is in a distinctive position of being a nationally-distributed mattress manufacturer with headquarters in the heart of the furniture capital of the world. With six manufacturing/distribution facilities located across the United States, Kingsdown has grown from a southeast regional company to one with international distribution in over seventeen countries in Asia, the Middle East, Canada and South America.

"Kingsley-Bate, Ltd. is America's leading manufacturer of teak outdoor furniture. Offering only the highest quality products to the casual furniture market, Kingsley-Bate leads the way in the responsible manufacture of its furniture. Preservation of the Earth's ecological system is today a major concern. Indiscriminate deforestation of the Amazon Basin and other rainforests has led to widespread suspicion by the public of those companies in the teak industry. Kingsley-Bate is the first American company to use Javanese teak in the manufacture of its furniture. Our teak is harvested from carefully controlled plantations, established in Indonesia by the Dutch in the Mid-19th century. The Indonesian government allows the felling of a limited number of trees each year, and ensures that an equal amount of reforestation takes place. In 1983 Kingsley-Bate, in conjunction with the Indonesian government and its people, undertook to develop a teak furniture program in Java. Since then, Indonesia and Kingsley-Bate have shown that such a program can be implemented without detriment to that country's natural resources.
In 1983 Kingsley-Bate began producing window boxes and has since expanded the line to include eleven bench and armchair styles, dining tables and chairs, lounge and resort furniture, rocking chairs, planters, market umbrellas and more. Manufactured with precise mortise and tenon joinery, the furniture is shipped partially assembled. The factory fully assembles each piece prior to shipment to ensure that reassembly will take a minimum of effort and all pieces will fit together to our precise specifications. The design of the furniture incorporates the talents of skilled wood carvers and craftsmen. Every year the line is expanded to incorporate new products – in the fall of 1999 we anticipate the largest expansion yet, including new bench, dining, lounge and chaise groups.
Consistently listed as a top selling line by retailers in CASUAL LIVING magazine's feature "Hot Sellers", Kingsley-Bate is a popular line with pool and patio stores, casual furniture retailers and garden centers. The site line of furniture is regularly specified by interior/exterior designers, architects, and landscape architects worldwide for use in commercial, institutional and residential properties including hotels, parks, universities, resorts, and restaurants.

Kittinger is one of America's oldest surviving "high-end" manufacturers of traditional mahogany furniture. Dating back to the 1800's, Kittinger furniture can be found in the White House, embassies, estates, boardrooms and executive offices for some of the world's top companies. But Kittinger is not restricted to the office, their timeless 18th century English and American design can also be found in refined homes around the world. I like this quote from Kittinger: "Whether for the office or for the home, Kittinger's designs remain timeless. From magnificent dining room ensembles to complete custom executive office suites, Kittinger crafts furniture destined to be passed through and prized by generations. Our use of only the finest woods and veneers, precision detailing, and superb craftsmenship make certain that every piece accentuates the Kittinger quality that has been upheld for over 138 years." All hand-made product. Many companies talk about being bench-made, but Kittinger is truly hand-made. One craftsman works on each piece from start to finish. There are so many reasons why Kittinger stands at the top of the list of custom high end furniture. The president of Kittinger started on the line as a craftsman for twelve years. They do over 40% of their business as custom, meaning if the table you see is too small, the factory will customize it to meet your needs. If a writing desk is not wide enough, let them know what you need and they'll alter a line item just for you. Kittinger has had a relationship with the White House since the 1970's creating custom pieces throughout the house. Many of the items you see on tour can be reproduced and placed in your own home. Look for the Kittinger name on the furniture you see in many Fortune 500 executive offices and suites. Upholstery is available on in COM, which means you supply the fabric, they supply the finest hand-crafted quality upholstery in the world.

Kravet is a fourth generation family business offering the widest range of fabrics and furnishings in the home decorative industry. The company began by supplying traditional and transitional fabrics to the interior design trade in 1918. Years later, Kravet developed an upholstered furniture collection as well as a mahogany wood-exposed chair collection, which together has made Kravet Furniture a success. Since then a complete variety of styles and additional products have been added including ottomans, footstools, occasional tables, sleepers and more. In 1993, as Kravet entered its 75th year in business, the company launched a licensing division with high profile names such as Mark Hampton, Larry Laslo, Biltmore Estate and Joseph Abboud. For the Millennium, Kravet has re-merchandised its business into three divisions: kravetcouture, kravetdesign, and kravetbasics. Kravetcouture is the high-end designer only brand that consists of the most luxurious weaves and printed products available today. Kravetdesign contains the most diverse product offering with traditional, transitional and fashion forward designs. The majority of the licensed product is held within this division. The kravetbasics brand focuses its view on the continuous need to offer reasonably priced basic product such as solids, chenilles and multi-purpose wovens and prints. With the introduction of these three new brands, Kravet will grow to be even more successful and maintain its leadership position in the home decorative industry. From the Kravet website.

The company soon gained a reputation as Lane and demand for their products grew. By 1951 they branched into occasional tables, 1956 brought casegoods, accent pieces in 1965 and the now famous Lane upholstery line started in 1967.

Family owned business started in 1969. The owners, Bill and Dottie Coley started the company because they wanted to make furniture that would be suitable both design-wise and quality-wise for their own home. Fortunately, Bill is an architect by profession, an excellent background for furniture design. His knowledge of the engineering elements that go into quality construction, along with Dottie's flair for design have helped make Lee a leader in American made upholstery and set a standard for value in their price class. I really like Lee's mission statement and think it is worth repeating: "We are committed to 'wowing' the consumer through on-time delivery of innovatively styled, custom built, high quality home furnishings." "Wowing" is such a great word, it implies the company has a desire to get your business not just the first time, but every time you're in the market for new furniture. The company has three divisions: LEE - custom built, eight way hand tied, LEATHER BY LEE - their top quality pure aniline leather line, COVERALLS - the washable slipcover line and HOMEGEAR - their starting price point line. Their warranty: frame and springs for life with some caveats you can find on their web site.

Possibly no other furniture company has had the impact on their industry that Lexington has. If there was such a thing as a Furniture Yearbook, you would find this under their picture: Most likely to succeed. Best quality improvement. Most exciting showroom. Most innovative new designs. Industry leader. Lexington Consumer Services offers dealer location information 24 hours a day and special assistance weekdays 8-5 Eastern.
In most furniture companies there is a small team of "insiders" who do all of the design work, marketing, and research. At Lexington it's different. A factory sales rep was asked who was the driving force behind Lexington. After thinking a moment he said, "No one. Everyone from the president down is committed to putting out great products. There is a constant sharing of ideas and input from all levels in the company. All of us design, market and service the product." It's no wonder that every time Lexington introduces a new group, within months, the rest of the industry is scrambling to copy it. Now you can visit Lexington's extensive web page on the Internet to view catalogs, get decorating ideas and see what's new from Lexington. Ask for their brochure highlighting all of their current collections. It includes an order form for purchasing full color copies of the dealer catalogs. Now Lexington has a full line of upholstery. Made of 5/4 kiln dried hardwoods with hand-tied springs, pocketed coil backs, glued, screwed and double-dowled joints for strength. They use a high density poly foam cushion core for seats.

LIFECHEST
Letters, photos, and other memorabilia acquired over a lifetime too often end up forgotten in attics and basements. The Life Chest by Powell is an heirloom quality chest designed with features that will allow you to safely store your precious life's momento. Yost introduced the Life Chest concept to North America in 1999…after 28 years of research and development. Kim Yost introduced the Life Chest concept to North America in 1999…after 28 years of research and development. As a young man, Kim was traveling in Asia on his first buying trip for Woodward's, a department store chain in Western Canada. As the story goes, Kim was in a remote jungle area of Northern Thailand where he and his agent were riding elephants. That evening, during dinner at his agent's home, he was shown five generations of Life Chests. The earliest chest, created by his agent's great, great grandfather dated back to the late 1700's. Each chest was filled with many precious memories all preserved with great care. Kim was very moved by this preservation of memories from past generations. After being presented with a gift of his own Life Chest, he was very eager to begin preserving the memories of his own life's journey. To date, Kim's enthusiasm has spread throughout hundreds of family members and friends who now have their own Life Chests. Of all the Life Chests Kim has given as gifts, the one that stands out as the most important of all to him is the one he gave to his only child, Ashley, at the time of her birth. Since then Ashley has been busy filling her Life Chest with memories of her own life's journey.

There is no end to the number of companies who make English Reproduction furniture, it is a popular category and continues to sell well around the world. Unfortunately, most of those companies are actually making "interpretations" of English furniture. That is, they adapt the look of English furniture to the culture or country where they are trying to market. It is certainly refreshing then to look at the fine collection of Lloyd Buxton reproductions. Like the name says, they reproduce, rather than interpret the essence of the English design. With attention to detail and meticulous care in construction we think you'll find any purchase from Lloyd Buxton to be an investment in quality and a real piece of authentic English furniture.

When you think custom furniture, Lorts can be the only choice you need. The factory is set up to handle most any request with craftsmen accustomed to unusual specifications. Don't like the table size? Lorts will work with you to build a table to the size that meets your needs. Sideboard too big? Lorts will make the piece fit neatly into that tough spot you have where nothing else seems to work. Need a custom wall system? Who else does it in 29 finishes? Who else will arrange, re-arrange and customize your system just the way you want it? Lorts of course! Lorts has introduced a new finishing process called finish on finish. This process allows any two Lorts finishes to be applied one on top of the other. They have found that colors work best over stains, but you imagination is the only limit. The result is a beautiful gesso appearance that will give the furniture a look only seen on antiques. The standard Lorts finish is lightly distressed, however, on any item, you can order heavy distressing with two coats of hand-rubbed wax, known as the "Alexander Sinclair." Construction features include: • All finishes are available at no up-charge, extra finishes can be combined and customized at very reasonable additional charges. • Finishes are selected from Sherwin-Williams so you can not only use their 29 finishes, but you can have your furniture custom finished in any of the thousands of beautiful Sherwin-Williams colors. • • the products are built to an unfinished inventory to ensure good lead times • Solid hardwood (alder) construction for strength and lasting durability • Accuride steel ball-bearing drawer slides give self-lubricating positive movement for a lifetime, • All drawer fronts, backs and sides are solid alder with 1/4" drawer bottoms and French dovetail assembly, the strongest design in the furniture industry • Raised panel doors with mortise and tenon joints, allowing doors to expand and contract with varying levels of moisture in the air • Mitre joints on molding, reinforcing the foundation while adding style and a clean appearance • Assembled by craftsmen using wood screws and glue, characterizing furniture that can be enjoyed for generations to follow

Mac Kenzie-Dow has a mission statement, which is fairly unusual in the furniture industry; and considering the escaping sound of furniture manufacturing in the United States, their mission is quite welcome in this business. "To promote, market and sell products manufactured from the Appalachian Hardwood Forests and elsewhere to the Furniture Industry of America." Along with a couple other principles of providing marketing and sales for companies in the Appalachians, this seems to be a defining idea for Mac Kenzie-Dow. That's a long introduction, but it is a good one to set the stage. People don't realize just how important it is to purchase furniture made in the U.S. You can argue about the economic benefits and the mom and apple pie part, and that is certainly all true, although if an industry won't compete then it shouldn't compete. However, most of the furniture made in the U.S. is just better quality than what we're seeing being imported. I know there are exceptions, but for the same price, you can get really good quality here. Take Mac Kenzie-Dow for example. Their three collections, English Pub, County Down and the Oakwood collection feature hardwoods coming primarily, from the Appalachians. The styling is innovative and exciting and the quality of fit and finish are wonderful at their price range. I recommend you check them out on their web site and see what all the excitement is about.

Magnussen Home designs and crafts furniture for the most important rooms in your home. Your living room, dining room, master bedroom, guest room, den, study, media room, library. Wonderful places for occasional tables, decorative accents, entertainment walls, dining room and bedroom suites. Although Magnussen Home over the years has grown larger, the principles of a family-run-business -- trust, honesty and respect -- continue as their foundation. Ingwer Magnussen was a cabinetmaker by trade and a craftsman and businessman by heart. Ingwer took the bold initiative to start his own business in Kitchener, Ontario, when he was unable to find work during the 1930s depression. He beautifully and intricately carved show wood for sofa frames for upholstery manufacturers and his business grew into a good-sized company serving Canada. Today Magnussen has transformed into a full line furniture manufacturer with a strong presence in North America with an emerging business presence around the world. Magnussen Home has a passion for detail. Magnussen designers create every piece of furniture that carries the Magnussen Home name. We understand that finishing touches like intricately carved woodwork or ironwork do more than complete the look of a piece of furniture; they set the tone of your home.

When Mario Russo started the Mario Manufacturing Company in 1922, even he could not have possibly foreseen the growth and direction that his small New York based operation would take in the decades to come. Arriving in the United States from Palermo, Italy, Mario worked for a time making ornamental pictures frames. He later became associated with the Crucet Manufacturing Company in making decorative baskets, shades of mica, and a line of decorative floor lamps and torchiers. In 1922, he founded the Mario Manufacturing Company. In addition to producing beautifully hand decorated mica shades, the company became well known for its leather lamps. Mario, located on 26th street in New York, continued to grow and in the 1950's became one of the first companies to import hand crafted lamp bases from Italy. In 1952, upon the death of his father, Vito Russo became President of Mario Manufacturing. Mario Manufacturing expanded and relocated its production facilities to Mount Vernon, New York in the early 1960's. In 1965, Mario innovated the still popular mini lamp. These mini lamps created the transition for lighting to become decorative as well as functional. In 1988, Mario Russo's grandson, Louis Scutellaro, became President and relocated the business to Roanoke, Virginia. Since it's relocation, Mario has become a self contained manufacturer, producing all of its own components. Facilities include Ceramic Production., Woodworking, Permastone, and a comprehensive Lampshade program. Throughout the years, Mario has always manufactured hand crafted leather lamps as the company's signature. In 1997, Mario Industries re-introduced lampshades of genuine mica, reminiscent of the original Mario Designs. Today, Mario, the oldest family owned lamp manufacturer in the country, has grown to include these affiliated companies: Impressions (statues), Lampshades by Mario, Passport Furniture, Masterworks, and Finial Showcase. While serving a loyal International customer base nearly 5000 strong, Mario prides itself on its ability to equally serve both large and small customers, producing lamps of lasting beauty.

Compare them "apples to apples" with people using the same frames (make sure they are oak hardwood), the same fabrics, the same cushions, the same tailoring (make sure it is matched front and back), and be sure they feel just as comfortable (Massoud uses HRLux cushions just like all the high-end manufacturers.) You won't be able to compare the spring system because Massoud uses a next-generation spring system that looks more like your mattress than a sofa. Now, after you are certain you have two fairly similar sofas, look at the price tag. You will have the store deliver the Massoud. With 800 fabrics and 100 frames to choose from you certainly won't have any trouble finding a style and look that will fit in your home. And with a 10 year warranty covering everything under the fabric you certainly won't have to worry about it.

It's really tough being a start-up company these days. And to start a new furniture company in an already crowded field, middle to high-end upholstery, the challenge is especially daunting. So you have to hand it to anyone willing to try. That's what I've got to do for Jack McNeilly and Mike Champion, two enterprising young guys with 50 years experience in the industry. Focusing on the fabric and leather upholstery market they're working hard to produce a "better mousetrap" and compete by providing great styles and quality at a price that will make them very attractive to both dealers and consumers. In my experience, start up companies like this often provide an exceptional value because they are trying so hard to please and make a name for themselves. Interested dealers can find them at the High Point Market, consumers can call the factory for the name of the closest dealer. Good luck guys!

Choose from the standard selection of sofas, loveseats and sleepers as well as specialty chairs, designer chairs and sectionals. Frames, springs, and spring-down cushions are warranted for the life of the furniture, however, they are very careful to note that the warranty is voided if misuse or abuse is detected. That is a very strong warranty from a company in this price range. They can do it though because of the seasoned, kiln-dried hardwood frames, double-doweled joints reinforced with glued and screwed corner blocks; individually eight-way hand-tied double cone coils in the seats resting on resin-coated steel webbing; and individually pocketed spings in the spring-down cushions. Interiors are fully padded and the arms and backs are double covered and padded.

The Mitchell Gold Company has a simple vision -- create furniture that makes people feel good. Since its founding in 1989, the company has delivered on this singular vision with a full line of upholstered and slipcovered furniture that have become synonomous with today's relaxed styles of living.

"Since 1989, the Mitchell Gold Company has been committed to providing innovative moderately priced upholstery for relaxed styles of living. Instant Gratification is what we want to provide. We have based our company on selling only to retailers who will stock our products and provide them to our customers quickly.

We also look at things another way. Listen to what people want, then create it. We work extremely hard at this, the goal being serendipity at the furniture stores. It's all part of being responsive to what our customers want: basic yet classic furniture with timeless appeal. We call our style current, not traditional or contemporary, but perhaps a new blend of the two. (We avoid trendy; experience shows it ususally makes for regrettable furniture investments.)"

As of Spring of 2003 these are their major collections.

American Images - Traditional American design with a rich cherry finish.
Cherry Towne - 18th century cherry finish on alder. This group has been around since 1976.
Oak Breeze - Lifestyle adaptation for the casual home decor. Shutter, Tradewind and Plantation bed designs give a hint at the feeling you'll get with this subtle collection.
Oak Towne - Number one seller in solid oak. Traditional 18th century American design.
Symetri - Mission/Shaker adaptation featuring simple, clean lines in two finishes.
Symetri Youth - Same collection, same solid wood construction and quality but scaled for youth. A tremendous value in solid wood furniture.

Adult and youth bedroom, dining room, occasional, bookcases, desks, rockers and a deacon's bench. Everything is constructed from Hard Rock Maple and other choice hardwoods harvested in Maine.
Moosehead Manufacturing, located in Monson, Maine, was founded in 1947 by brothers John and Tolford Durham. Tolford, an independent woodsman out of Belfast, Maine, saw the plant on one of his journeys to the north and noticed that it was for sale. Seeing the opportunity that the structure offered, he went back to his brother, John, then an executive at the Diamond Match Company, and the two decided to purchase the vacant mill.
Employing about forty people, they began making chair and table sets and, eventually, moved into the case goods market. After securing a good base for their business, they began developing, producing and marketing their own lines. The company has been growing ever since. In 1961, the company physically grew as it expanded to a second plant located in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. Moosehead has produced more than a half billion dollars worth of furniture, at retail, in the last 50 years, and has been shipped thoughout the United States and to locations in Canada, Bermuda, Panama, Puerto Rico, Japan, and South Korea
A recent line called Memory Lane specializes in infant, youth, and young adult furniture, but has a secondary purpose of building a strong customer base for the adults of the future. Currently, the company is working on a new ash line to add to its traditionally maple furniture selection. The company hopes that the new lines it introduces help to broaden its customer base even more and that the longevity and quality of its product will bring back second, third, and fourth generations of Moosehead customers.

Nick and Gretchen Gabrielli started in the furniture business importing antique furniture of Italian and Spanish origin from Argentina. Over the decade their love for this fascinating combination of style and design inspired a collection of new furniture that is both sophisticated and finely constructed. The company that grew out of this, Old Biscayne, now offers antique reproductions and original designs, each with a story and signed and dated by its author, "the Gabriellis." Made with original solid bronze, iron, and aluminum castings meticulously detailed by artisans using Old World techniques, the furniture is manufactured from heavy gauge iron and solid steel components insuring a very sturdy and durable, heirloom quality product. Made with reinforced, welded construction. Each weld is concealed by an individually handpoured pewter casting using all hand-turned and hand forged steel. Old Biscayne finishes their furniture with hand rubbed patinas employing Old World layering techniques and advanced formulated environmentally friendly paint finishes that improve with age. Custom heights and sizes are available. Some pieces are signed by the artist as an original work of art. The collection includes beds, armoires, chests, benches and end tables. This is high-end furniture with quality to match their prices.

Old Hickory FurnitureOld Hickory has been helping make memories for most of the last 100 years. The enduring popularity of rustic furniture began with the pioneers who first made rustic furniture in the early 1800's. Their craftsmanship was honed in small towns and some evolved into companies manufacturing rustic furniture known for its style and natural elegance. The first of these companies was Old Hickory, incorporated as Old Hickory Chair Co. in the late 1890's.
Old Hickory's beginnings predate accurate newspaper records, but can be traced back to a craftsman named Billy Richardson. In the 1880's, Richardson built hoop chairs, settees and tables from the hickory wood that flourished in the limestone-rich soils of Indiana. On weekends, he sold his furniture on the town square in the nearby county seat of Martinsville.
But even Billy Richardson was building on earlier traditions. The earliest pioneers who crossed the Great Smokies discovered that hickory was well-suited for building furniture that would endure for generations. A few years back, the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture described hickory wood as "exceptionally tough, heavy and strong," confirming the experienced wisdom of our early pioneers.
Out of this legacy, Old Hickory was born. It grew because people found comfort and quality in its natural forms and sturdy construction. People in Chicago and New York were attracted to Old Hickory furniture by displays in merchandise marts and department stores as early as 1920. From the early 1900's. many of our national parks featured Old Hickory furnishings, including the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone, where the dining chairs from the 1906 opening are still in use today!.
One of our favorite photos from that era presents Greta Garbo sitting very nervously on an Old Hickory chair next to an uncaged lion.
In today's world, many things change. Making Old Hickory furniture is not one of them. Each winter, the self-regenerating hickory trees are harvested and the wood is shipped to us here in Shelbyville. After curing in our own kiln, the wood is crafted into the casually elegant furniture that is our hallmark, and shipped throughout the world.
"The best goll-durn furniture you ever did see" quipped one customer in 1910... "an instant heirloom" said a recent customer. Old Hickory is firmly rooted in its beginnings and remains today stubbornly old-fashioned in its insistence on old-fashioned quality.
We believe that Old Hickory continues to thrive today because we continue to build our furniture in a way that Billy Richardson would understand ... each piece is hand-crafted and assembled with old-fashioned care because good quality is always in fashion.

I stood behind the showroom of Oley Valley Reproductions shaking my head. In each direction were acres and acres of farmland. Historic Berks county is only an hour from the insanity of Philadelphia traffic, noise and congestion yet here in this field, time stood still. I made a 360 degree panoramic sweep with my camera. I wanted to capture the newly plowed fields (fresh with manure the smell was daunting) the barn with hand tools scattered around computerized equipment, the small but adequate showroom, the farmhouse with clothesline out front. No one is going to believe this is real. Coming to work everyday in this setting must keep the owners focused on their mission: to hand make fine 18th century American furniture reproductions; to make it affordable and to make it true to the same commitment to quality they've stressed for more than 25 years. The day my wife and I visited, the man setting up a bed in the corner of the showroom was the same man who made it. My wife told him her brother and sister-in-law purchased a bed and a couple other pieces from them the year before. He asked for details of what they purchased then nodded in remembrance. After all, he noted, each order is customer produced for each new owner's needs. The showroom isn't very large, but you can can see a great sampling of their colonial reproduction furniture, fine quality country cupboards and Windsor chairs, all created in carefully hand-rubbed paint and stain finishes. From their website: "Our colonial accessories include lighting, redware, woven textiles, trade signs, pewter and more -- all carefully selected by us. All accessories are hand made by high quality American craftsmen we know, most are made locally to our Oley workshop. Never any imports!!! Never!!"

From the OW Lee website: "For over sixty years [since 1947], OW Lee has been dedicated to the design and production of fine handcrafted casual furniture. From their 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Ontario, California, artisans combine centuries-old techniques with state-of-the-art equipment to produce beautiful casual furniture.
Truly an American family tradition, OW Lee Company began in Pasadena, California by Oddist W. Lee in 1947 as a wrought-iron gate manufacturer for the luxurious estates of Southern California. Due to increased requests from local patio furniture store owners, Oddist began to design and sell high-end patio furniture directly. In 1954, he incorporated under the name OW Lee Company.
Oddist's son, Bob, joined his father after high school and continued in the business after Oddist retired. Throughout the 70's, 80's, and early 90's, Bob Lee and his wife Beverly, established OW Lee Company as a well known and reputable manufacturer in the ever growing casual furniture industry. In 2008 they were awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Casual Furnishings Association. It is reserved for individuals who have made exemplary contributions to the casual-furniture industry and to their communities.
The third generation of the Lee family maintains Oddist's commitment to quality almost 60 years later. Bob's son Brian, daughter Terri, and son-in-law Chris are continuing to build OW Lee into the premier name in casual furnishings. The OW Lee name stands for quality and as a family owned business, they have pledged to continue the tradition started in 1947."

Pride outdoor furniture is made in a 300,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Costa Rica. I've been to Costa Rica and anytime they want me to come down and personally check out the factory, I'm on the next jet. But I digress. Deciding on who to buy outdoor furniture from is very confusing because there are literally dozens of companies, and the quality ranges from superior to just pure junk. Most of the stuff you see in department stores and super stores falls into the last category. Pure junk, imported from who knows where with one thing in mind, low low price to beat the competitor down the street. Unless you go specifically to a pool and patio store, or a quality furniture store, you aren't going to get durable furniture that will last for many many seasons. Pride is one of those companies. The aluminum is rust-free, aircraft grade with internal wall structure. The factory claims it is 30% thicker than their competition, but I don't know who that comparison is against. I can tell you that their full circumfrence welding and hand ground, hand buffed and polished joints indicate a finishing process that puts them in a ranking with some of the top names in the business. They have a good warranty.

They make medium quality furniture for stores that want to carry their own brand. The store obviously can't have a master craftsman in the back, hand making your sofa to order. So they do the next best thing. They get Private Label to make it, put the store's name on it, and voila, instant quality with the store's name on it.

To get the full picture you have to sit down with their catalog, (bring a hand truck to move it) and spend a couple hours just flipping through the pages. You will find curios and collectors cabinets, corner cabinets, consoles, mirrors and bedroom, gem chests, hall trees, entertainment centers, armoires, bookcases and home office, screens and hand painted items, accessories and various accent pieces. They have one of the largest collections of curio and display cabinets in the world. Their choices in style will offer something for everyone. Console chests are used as accent pieces in a bedroom, guest room, hallway or living room. They are usually fancy or decorated, can often be bombe style, 18th century or french. It is really hard to find a good hall tree anymore. Actually, there just aren’t that many people who use them. But you figure, if only 1/10 of 1% of the population liked them that is still tens of thousands of hall trees. So where can you get one? Pulaski. One of Pulaski’s strong areas is painted furniture. You can get entertainment centers, consoles, cabinets, screens, armoires all with a variety of wonderful scenes.

In 1848, company founder Joseph Richardson began clearing land at his new homestead in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin with the intention of farming. He had an opportunity to acquire the saw milling machinery enabling him to process and sell the logs he was clearing, and soon decided he preferred the lumber business to agriculture.

Several years later, in addition to selling raw lumber, he began making wood products and selling those, too. These products became more and more sophisticated until by the late 1800’s he and his sons were making and selling fine furniture. Now, more than 150 years later, Richardson Brothers Company is part of a diverse yet focused corporation called Richardson Industries.

Along with the Richardson Brothers brand of solid wood dining and bedroom furniture, the corporation also makes roof and floor trusses under the Richco name, does wood treating from Richardson Wood Preserving, maintains three commercial lumber yards in Sheboygan county, selling building materials and kitchen cabinets, along with home design services. And finally, they run a full line retail furniture store in Sheboygan Falls.
The common thread throughout all of these varied ventures is this: each has something to do with the home; designing it, building it, and ultimately furnishing it. This is the symbiotic relationships between company divisions that enables each one to excel, since they understand the larger relationship their products ultimately play in improving the quality of life for their customers.
Through all this, the company has maintained a reputation for solid wood furniture that gives the consumer a great value- a lot of furniture for a fair price. Over the years they have continued that tradition and expanded their line to include bedroom and bar stools. They haven’t tried to be all things to everyone which allows them to keep refining and perfecting their line so that you get more and more value. The Country Oak Collection is a beautiful solid oak classic country look that can even fit in a transitional setting. This is a very versatile group with enough tables, chairs and hutches to choose from that you can outfit a tiny kitchen or a huge dining room that will seat twelve. From dining to bedroom, as well as 75 occasional pieces all their collections are crafted from a wide variety of the industry's finest hardwoods, including: cherry, oak, maple, birch, pine, walnut, beech and South American Pearlwood.

Medium priced clocks in traditional to contemporary styles. It is hard to find a clock in this price/quality range. Most are either much more expensive or just cheap junk. Ridgeway uses German movements, long noted for reliable long-lasting products. Most of the Grandfather clocks have a moving moon dial, the history of which is very interesting. Back in the 1600's when the moon dial first appeared, people needed to know when the full moon would be out, so travel at night was not as hazardous. In the 1700's settlers gauged crop rotation based on the lunar calender. Oh, back to Ridgeway. Grandfather, wall clock and some mantle clocks.

Tel: 877.763-9773
Riverwood Casual has manufactured indoor/outdoor, casual furniture in Lexington, North Carolina (the heart of the North American furniture industry) since 1998. Focusing on the classic Adirondack-style chair, a timeless, proven design over 100 years old. All coatings are made of 100% environmentally friendly, acrylic resins that are the standard for premium exterior coatings. However, the surface integrity on any wood product left out in the elements is dependent on the degree of exposure. Use of this product in environments with substantial temperature fluctuations, moisture, and saltwater will over time take their toll on wood. Users should expect some swelling, discoloration, and minimal surface cracks or splits due to environmental changes. These are natural occurrences and should not be considered as defects. Cypress is a naturally decay-resistant wood with high paint retention characteristics and is harvested from the coastal plain forests of the southeastern United States. Because of its resistance to moisture, this renewable resource has many outdoor uses, such as decking, docks, porch flooring, greenhouses, siding, and stadium seats. One of the most popular uses of cypress is for outdoor furniture. All bolts, washers and nuts are made of stainless steel and will never rust or stain wood, they are hidden from the elements in protected pockets or holes so that water does not stand in holes. Due to the natural movement of wood, fasteners need to be tightened from time to time. All pre-assembled joints are screwed and glued with weather resistant glue. Riverwood Casual offers a limited, one year warranty that the furniture will be free from defects of material or workmanship. The company will repair or replace any piece of furniture found to be defective. Care Instructions: Monthly, wipe furniture with a soft cloth dipped in a mild soap and water solution to remove dust, dirt, and surface mold; wipe again with a soft cloth dipped in clear water; and wipe dry with soft cloth. If your product has cushions, clean the acrylic fabrics with mild soap and water. The Riverwood Casual website was used for content information.

I don't like to feature retail stores because this magazine focuses on the brands you see, not the retailers who promote them. However, Rooms To Go is unique in that they have become a vertical market unto themselves, similar to Ethan Allen. That means, they buy the furniture direct from the people who make it, most of it imported, they warehouse it and then distribute it all over the country to their own stores. Rooms To Go truly is a marvel of the entrepreneurial spirit and can be congratulated for their success. Consumers should be aware though that when you are in a Rooms To Go store, there is no way to compare the quality of their furniture other than the claims they put on it. You cannot compare brand to brand because they are their own brand. The best way to know if you are getting a true value is to shop your Rooms To Go store, then look at furniture in other stores of similar price and discern from that what kind of quality you will get for the money you spend.

Quarter-sawn red oak Arts & Crafts and Mission style furniture. You fans of this style know that it is a uniquely American contribution to the furniture industry. The Mission style grew out of the southwest and west coast and Arts & Crafts is a revival movement of the 1870's. First introduced through interest in the paintings and writings of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, artists and craftsmen were selling their designs in the creative centers of Boston and Cincinnati. Oscar Wilde played a large part in raising nationwide interest in the style when he toured the country in 1882. By 1890 the unique look and techniques of the movement were becoming trendy among American architects and was showing up in the homes of America's most influential and affluent homeowners. It is interesting to note that the children who grew up in these fashionable homes would one day help make Gustav Stickley a household name. Now you can carry on a piece of history and create your own tradition through Royal Craftsman's furniture. Choose from bedroom, dining room, home office, occasional, entertainment centers and leather upholstery.

Sealy doesn't actually make furniture, they license Klaussner to do it for them. The only place to see the furniture is in a store that sells Sealy Furniture.

The name Sealy has always been synonymous with bedding. Competitors often complain their customers come in the store asking for a Sealy, like we go into a store and ask for Kleenex or Band-Aids. That's fine for Sealy and fine for you because you are purchasing one of the finest bedding sets on the market. The biggest problem mattress companies have these days is sticker-shock. Someone uses a mattress that was handed down from the grandparents, got placed in an attic, was given away during a garage sale and then finally disintegrates when a window is left open and gets it wet. They then head to a store, see the prices and faint. Not realistic folks. You have to remember that there is nothing else in our lives that carries our full body weight for six to eight hours, 365 days a year for ten years straight. Your family car couldn't hold up to that kind of use. The fact that a Sealy mattress carries a ten year warranty is a modern miracle. Consider the technology that goes into a mattress and you will be amazed that they cost as little as they do. For the ultimate in luxurious comfort, check out the factory web site.

Formerly known as Southern Furniture Reproductions, the company changed their name in October of 2001. Authentic Shaker and Colonial style furniture made of Eastern White pine. Over 300 years ago the King of England chose these tall strong trees as his wood of choice to make the masts for the English nobilities' ships. Surveyors marked the very best trees with an arrow that bore the King's mark and forbid the Colonists to cut them down. However, the strength of the trees was well known and carpenters loved to work with the wood. Despite the threat of penalties, the white pine was used throughout the colonies for wainscotting, paneling, flooring and furniture. Fortunately, there are no "king's arrows" marking the forests today, so SFR used it as their wood of choice to make make casual, comfortable furniture that is easy to care for and fits so well into any home setting. In today's eclectic homes this furniture can be used in a formal 18th century setting or used to accent your own casual relaxed decor.

Southwood was started in 1973 by three successful executives from the furniture industry.They wanted to form a "family company" and specialize in what they knew best, "18th century upholstery designs." I know what you are thinking, "them and about 250 other companies." But Southwood had an advantage, the people running it truly loved the classic beauty of 18th century, and they know how to make it well. Since then, they have gained a reputation as being a high-end high-quality line. The attention to detail they have carefully maintained allows them to break their line down into Queen Anne, Chippendale and Federal period designs. It was this determination to keep their quality and value in balance that allowed them to be an authorized manufacturer of SPNEA (Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities) and Historic Deerfield pieces. Association with these organizations is allowed only after a company has shown that it can maintain their standards. Southwood carries a five year warranty and specializes in Reproduction, skirted, motion leather and contract upholstery.

I'm not personally familiar with this line so I'd like to use the letter I got from the factory asking me to include them in furniture magazine. I don't normally do this because, well... of course they're going to say they are the best. But, in this case I'll make an exception because I am familiar with Statton, and would have to agree they make the finest (or at least rival anyone else making that claim) domestic solid cherry reproductions in the US. So I trust what they are saying about Sovereign. If any of my readers own Sovereign and would like to add a footnote, please send it to me.

"The Statton Family has been producing solid wood antique reproductions for over 80 years. We still produce the finest domestic solid cherry reproductions in the US, which can be found at Camp David and many of the US Embassies worldwide. Six years ago we started Sovereign Furniture LTD. to look into importing mahogany furniture. We located an exceptional company in Europe that started a factory in the Far East to produce the finest reproductions. They have spent years training their workers to produce at the highest quality level and have accomplished a major milestone by being awarded the ISO 9001-2000 manufacturing certification. They are one of the few companies in the Far East to achieve this level of success. Thus we are able to offer you an exceptional value. All of the furniture we transport to the United States is climate controlled and built to expand and contract according to the season. In a nation of imported goods, ours stands above the rest because we know and understand construction and finish technique. We value the smaller details and pay great attention to making each piece authentic to its original design. We use the best cuts of mahogany (Swietenia mahogany) and the finest finishes to enhance and capture the depth and flare of the grain of wood. We hope to build a tradition in your home for generations to come. Please view our collections and contact us with any questions you may have. "

For some 75 years, Spring Air has been widely recognized for its innovative mattresses and sleep sets. Francis Karr, who founded the company in 1926, was himself a visionary. His free-end offset coil design, which adjusts to each sleeper's weight, is today the most copied design in the bedding industry. Spring Air has earned a reputation over the years for continuous product improvement. In the late 1940's, the company introduced button-free technology, quilted surfaces and extra-supportive bedding materials. In 1953, Spring Air began producing its Health Center mattress, which featured zones for different areas of the body. The company began manufacturing the Back Supporter mattress in the early 1960's, and sales doubled within seven years. Among other enhancements to Spring Air mattresses were the pillow-top mattress (1973), natural fiber bedding materials such as silk and wool (the Four Seasons concept in 1988) and Conforma foam which conforms to your neck, shoulders, and lower back (1991). Innovation continues into the 90's with the introduction of latex/innerspring combination products. In 1995, Spring Air introduced a product line that uses three zones in the foundation for durability, zoning in the innerspring for support, and seven zones in the Conforma foam for total sleep fitness. In 1999, Spring Air introduced the ultra premium Back Supporter Comfort Caress Collection... Better Comfort, Better Quality, Better Value. In 2000 Spring Air introduced "The latest sensation in sleep innovation". The foam encased perimeter design that provides more support, more comfort, and more edge-to-edge sleeping surface. In February 2001 Spring Air introduced the NeverTurn mattress feature with only one sleeping side and it never needs to be turned. The ComfortFlex feature conforms and supports to the shape of your body providing less mattress disturbance from partner movement and a better nights sleep. Today, Spring Air distributes bedding internationally, with plants in the US, Canada, Mexico, England, Ireland, Australia, Middle East and Argentina. The company is the fourth-largest bedding manufacturer in the world and still leads the industry in product features and value.

Built to take all the abuse you could ever hand out, this furniture is limited in styling because it has a "keep it simple" look about it. The factory will probably disagree with that because they do have several very nice pieces that could just as easily fit in your living room.

In 1946, brothers Bob and Mac Hodgson started manufacturing chests in a small building in Bay Minette, Alabama. In a very short time, they created a reputation for delivering quality-built products that made good business sense. Thirteen years later, in 1959, Bob and Mac rallied the community and rebuilt the company after a three alarm fire consumed the building. During the year it took to rebuild, Standard kept its commitment to customers and employees with typical dedication that exists even today. Standard entered the import business in 1986, importing and assembling dining room groups and casual dinettes. This program has now become a tremendously successful Grand Designs division. Standard today supplies most of the leading retail chains in the nation, over 1,500 independent stores, and stores in many countries around the world.

In an industry where there are literally hundreds of companies making the exact same product you do, it is very hard to survive, much less stand out. Stanford is doing both by offering a small collection of very popular designs, in a current, fresh fabrics at a price that is hard to resist. They will make a medium to upper-medium quality product, well priced and backed by the factory against any defects. Any maple exposed wood is available in three finishes, mahogany is available in mahogany and gunstock finish only. The look is transitional and traditional.

In 1924, a young man named Thomas Bahnson Stanley realized a long-held dream when he founded Stanley Furniture Company. From the beginning, the Stanley goal was to manufacture high quality furniture at a price the average American family could afford. To accomplish that goal, Mr. Stanley surrounded himself with the finest furniture craftsmen and instilled in them a sense of pride in building superb quality into every Stanley product.
Those original craftsmen passed on their knowledge and their unique sense of pride to each generation of Stanley craftsmen. And today, that pride is shared by their 3,000 associates who have enabled Stanley Furniture Company to become one of the largest, most respected case goods manufacturers in the nation.
Stanley makes such a wide variety of styles and meet so many needs that they cannot all fit in this small space. Please click on Stanley to go to their own separate page which includes bedroom, dining room, occasional, wall units, office furniture and home entertainment centers in styles ranging from contemporary to shaker. When you go to a store that carries Stanley you can often get everything you need from case goods to upholstery. I consider Stanley a Furniture Magazine "Best Buy" because of their variety of styles and competitive prices in their class ( mid price, mid quality).

Statton Secretary There are only a few companies in the furniture industry who's name has become synonymous with quality and design, without compromise, for generations. Statton is one of those. For almost 85 years, this family owned company has preserved the original 18th and 19th designs of such masters as Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton.
Their solid cherry reproductions and original designs have remained faithful to the spirit of the most prolific time in furniture innovation and change. Choose from bedroom, dining room, occasional and wall systems, home office and entertainment centers.
Statton Furniture Company is one of the few companies still owned and operated by the original founding family. Nestled in the foot hills of the Appalachian Mountains, the company is about seventy miles west of Washington D.C. Established in 1926 as a small producer of bedroom furniture, it has been quietly producing distinctive furniture of uncompromising quality for three generations. The line has grown to two hundred patterns and exemplifies the best of 18th century design and craftsmanship available in residential and commercial furnishings.
Philo Statton, with assistance from his wife Helen, founded Statton Furniture by the time he was thirty. He and Helen had developed a strong belief in the enduring beauty and craftsmanship inherent in traditional furniture and it was not long before occasional and dining room pieces were added to the bedroom line. In the thirty's a new mahogany collection appeared. New and innovative marketing techniques were developed such as the Statton "Tru-Type" House, which showcased furniture in attractive room settings for the first time, complete with accessories, wallpaper, and drapery treatments.
Today, the third generation is committed to the principles of quality and value espoused by Philo Statton in 1926. The effort and care of many people who make up the Statton family of craftsmen are evident in every piece of Statton Furniture.
UPDATE: Since 2009 Statton furniture is being sold under license to the Master's Woodshop, Inc. You can purchase either from The Master's Woodshop or purchase direct from the manufacturer. Keywords: Solid wood, solid cherry

"Collector Quality Furniture Since 1900" is their motto. Today, on its ninety-sixth anniversary, Stickley's fame has spread throughout this country and well beyond. Rarely a week passes without a major tribute to Stickley from a national publication for the pivotal and leading role it plays in reissuing the historic Mission Collection and making Arts & Crafts furniture available and affordable to "all who wish it and find it congenial to their mode of living."
Early in 1900, Gustav and Leopold Stickley along with other proponents of the Arts & Crafts Movement, advocated a return to simpler ideas, honest craftsmanship and sturdy ornamentation as a rebellion against the ornate Victorian furniture of the time. Today their Craftsman or Mission furniture is among the most prized and sought after at auction houses and antique galleries.
"After the excesses of the Eighties, we witnessed a return to fundamental ideas, to simple, well made and unadorned furniture. Our Mission Collection which began with thirty-three reissued Gustav and L. & J.G. pieces was immediately hailed as a 'Revival of the Fittest.'
While steeped in history and tradition, the collection has grown to over three hundred pieces designed for today's living. Made of solid quartersawn white oak and solid wild black cherry, each is signed and dated by a skilled and proud craftsman.
Over the years we have survived, prospered, and received many worthy tributes. In 1994 Gustav Stickley was inducted in the Furniture Hall of Fame and in May 1995, Stickley was chosen as the Business of the Year by the Syracuse Chamber of Commerce. Much of the success we have enjoyed is due to the outstanding people we have surrounded ourselves with. They have an understanding of Stickley's past, a commitment to its present, and a vision for the future."

Temple's history began, in all places, in a converted church building. (Pardon the pun.) Cecil Parker, along with his brothers, Kenneth and Grady started their company with the dream of filling a niche in the furniture industry, medium price, well made furniture that would appeal to the value-conscious shopper. Not that there weren't other companies already doing that, but like every entrepreneur, they thought they could do it better. That was in 1962. Now more than forty years later, the sons have continued the tradition of 8-way hand tied medium priced upholstery and leather furniture that represents a great value for the average consumer. If you compare what you get for the money from Temple against what you get for the same money from a national furniture chain that doesn't specify brands, you will find the Temple is a fabulous buy and should outlast the competitors with no problem.

THE CASEY COLLECTION
Richard Casey and his wife "Sam" started The Casey Collection in 1992 using hand made paper as it's raw material. Ken Taylor of "Taylor's on Ten / Dallas Market", asked the Caseys if it were possible to create a line of wall decor that looked like broken architectural elements. No problem! Well, no one writes books on how to develop your own product. The demand of the architectural pieces became so great, the Caseys needed to develop new raw materials that were light in weight and to create new techniques in design and casting. Another demand from the industry was to develop the line to be for indoor or outdoor use. So much for hand made paper! The Caseys are very proud to be involved in an industry they love and have worked so hard to be a part of.

They take great pride in craftsmanship and modern technology combined with quality materials to ensure years of enjoyable service. Contemporary and shaker are very complementary these days. Shaker seems to have found a great following among those who love the fresh clean lines of contemporary and the clean lines of Shaker. It is no wonder then that Thunderbird, which makes some very nice contemporary groups would offer Mission/shaker groups as well.

TIANJIN-PHILADELPHIA
An unusual marriage of American marketing and Chinese carpet weaving has produced some of the finest quality carpets available. Tianjin, China has a reputation for its weaving ability, and with the implementation of new machinery they are setting new standards in machine-made Oriental carpets. Some consumers want a hand-made rug because it is unique and has a different look from any other carpet ever made. Tianin-Philadelphia carpets will not have those characteristics. It is important to realize that because of the steel looms these carpets have tighter weaves, straight and even lines, uniform pattern detail and a plush thickness.

TOM SEELY
5270 Vally Road
Berkley Spring, WV 25411
(304) 258-2818, fax (304) 258-5479 Tom Seely Furniture is hand built by individual craftsman out of solid wood. Because the furniture is not mass-produced on assembly lines, you can choose from a wide variety of stylistic options to customize it to your liking. Most items can be constructed out of pine, oak or cherry and finished with one of twelve different stains. The use of veneer or particleboard is never employed in construction, instead they utilize joinery techniques that were the standard of quality cabinetmaking centuries ago, before mass production became the norm, lending superior strength to all of our furniture's construction. Seely’s Furniture uses techniques such as "mortise- and-tenon joints" and "shiplapped", a traditional technique of overlapping boards, which allows the wood to expand and contract. Tom Seely is furniture built to last for generations. Solid wood.

TomLin Designs was established in October 1992 and is a division of LampCrafters, Inc. which has been in the lamp and shade manufacturing business for over 17 years. All of the TomLin Designs products are made within the factory in Lexington, North Carolina, including the exquisite hand-sewn and crafted lamp shades. The majority of lamps and accessories are made from composite materials such as fiberglass resin and other fillers such as wood byproducts, stone, or light weight glass beads. The advantages of using composite materials is the ability to control weight and texture as well as allowing the factory to be "cost wise" with the product. TomLin Designs takes great pride in the creation of "One-of-a-Kinds". This has been accomplished through an endless search for tasteful antiques as well as commissioning carved or sculptured pieces out that are known only to TomLin. Items such as these can not be found anywhere else. TomLin is still one of the few that continues to capture a rich, high quality finish by doing it the "old fashioned" way. Each and every one of the TomLin Designs pieces goes through a painstaking series of hand-rubbing to achieve that "old world" effect. Gold and silver gilts are applied just as the old world craftsmen have done for centuries. Individual sheets of metal are carefully placed on each object one sheet at a time where they are brushed and burnished to create the look that no paint can ever match. Tomlin Designs was established, as its name and logo depicts, to provide the home furnishings industry with "Our Contribution To Smart Southern Style". With this statement and theme for the company, TomLin Designs is committed to making products that are traditional in style and design but on the leading edge of traditional interpretation through creative usage of mediums, finishes and shading treatments that result in unique and innovative products.

Think case pieces for Trosby instead of complete collections, that's how furniture in the 18th century would have been purchased anyway.

We believe when you see and touch the furniture you'll appreciate the exquisite mahogany and burl inlays, along with satinwood and rosewood accents.

Folks. I don't often use quotes from a manufacturer because they are in the business of selling furniture and they're going to try to put the best face on their products. However, when I run across a line like Vermont Tubbs, I can with good conscience let them tell you their story. Vermont Tubbs is a great choice for someone who wants youth furniture their children can grow up with. You won't have to replace it because it is disposable and worn out, you might replace it because you're simply tired of it after fifteen or twenty years, but probably not because it fell apart.
"The Vermont Tubbs story traces back to 1840, when William F. Tubbs began steam bending ash to produce a line of durable, handcrafted snowshoes and skis. In the years to follow, that emphasis shifted to individually bench-built furniture with the same commitment to quality and value. We continue to broaden our line of ash bedroom furniture to offer a variety of styles for both adults and kids." Taken from their website.

A true example of fine quality English furniture, still made according to the standards that top brands used to be measured by. Wade continues to use a master craftsman-apprentice program to train their future wood workers, a method that ensures an exquisite product that will meet the expectations of even the most discerning buyer. To become a master craftsman an apprentice spends up to eight years working side by side with a mentor before they are permitted to work on their own. Compare that with the trend in the furniture industry where a new worker gets on the job training that might involve days or even hours. Careful French polishing methods and hand finishing allow Wade to offer four individual finishes. Traditional Mahogany deep red and russet tones, mellowed Mahogany, with golden tones, together with Yew tree and Walnut, both of which are temperate timbers selected to produce beautifully grained and individually figured pieces of furniture. They can even custom match finishes to blend with your own older furniture which may have already settled into its own rich patina. Wade deals in some of the most beautiful, exquisite and rare woods in the world but is also extremely conscious of the need to assure that these products are available for future generations. This commitment to the stewardship of our shared resources has led to the great honor of being awarded the Environmental Management Award by His Royal Highness Prince Phillip, as well as the Queen's Award for Export Achievement. When you go to the website you will actually go to the Europa Collection which is the distributor of Wade in the U.S. Navigate through their site to "Collections" and select Wade.

Of course this kind of quality and attention to detail isn't cheap, but cheap wasn't what you had in mind. As of August 2009 the company had shut the web site down. I called to ask if they were still in business and they said yes, but they were scaling back production. If you want Waterford I recommend you get busy and start buying it while you can. Let's keep this company in business.

Manufacturer of the Miracle Mattress, Weils has been in the mattress business since 1914. Weils is another contender in the move to offer alternatives to the springs, wires and coils of a traditional mattress. They use a product called Memortex to distinguish themselves from the rest of the field. According to Weils, the returns on the typical foam or ultracel type mattress is about 40%, mostly because it is such a radical departure from the spring and coil mattresses we grew up with. They tend to be hot, lose their memory, have lower warranties and create pressure points on the body. Weils claims that their Memortex product has solved all these problems. Folks, I have no experience with this mattress, I can only go on what I've heard from salespeople and product literature. Can anyone out there give me an unbiased opinion?

Wesley Allen is one of the few companies left in the world still making brass and metal beds with the express intention of passing on a family heirloom. Yes, they are a little pricier, but you're going to get what you pay for. Not only are their beds top quality but they are romantic and elegant. They state on their web site that they are "considered the strongest bed frames in the industry." I've never seen any objective testing data to support that, however, after almost two decades of selling their products I will make the statement that I do not know of anyone making a better or stronger bed frame, i.e., someone else may be just as good, but probably not better. (How's that to satisfy the legal department?) I don't go out on a limb like this very often, but I think companies like Wesley Allen deserve your consideration. They are representative of a core group of manufacturers who are fighting the "dumbing down" of consumers by producing high-quality products that can be passed down from generation to generation. Wesley Allen uses an oven bake technique to bond the electrostatically applied powder paint. Choose from about 30 standard and premium colors and finishes. One of the special advantages of purchasing from a company like Wesley Allen is their ability to customize many of their beds just for you. Want the bed with a canopy? No problem. Want wrap-around posts? Can do. How about a headboard bonnet with open footboard and return posts. Sure. Try getting that from a catalog company or department store selling cheap imports!

Went out of business in April 2006. Here is how I described them when they were in business: "Look to Whitaker for traditional to contemporary tables, chairs and barstools in solid oak. Although the factory warranty is only one year, with care, their furniture should last a lifetime. All solid oak table tops feature a Superguard finish to protect them from typical household chemicals, like nail polish, alcohol, and most of whatever Junior has in his chemistry set. These sizes are great for people in a condo, or small apartment, although full size dimensions are also available."

Very few natural materials can equal the appeal of natural rattan and wicker for creating a casual and warm feel in your home. And when it comes to rattan, Whitecraft is probably the leader in the entire industry. Since 1919 they have sought to elevate the use of rattan to a level of acceptance in even in the finest homes and decorating environments. They have done this through stylish designs and hand-crafted quality. Many people are afraid of rattan and wicker because of the poor quality of much of the import products sold in department stores. Whitecraft is in a class completely beyond that. Designs include: bedroom, occasional, barstools, casual/formal dining and upholstery. In October of 2003 Whitecraft merged with Cebu. Cebu will become Cebu Outdoor.

The Standard of Excellence in decorative lighting. A unique collection reflecting the talents of Far Eastern and European artisans combined with the creative efforts of American craftsmen. Authentic, time honored designs reproduced with meticulous attention to detail and color in the old world manner. Striking traditional and transitional creations blending techniques and materials of the past to meet the dictates of today's designs. These lamps grace the homes of those who demand unerring quality and consummate good taste.
Constantly seeking artware of uncommon beauty and distinction, Wildwood designers travel the world over to find glorious Kutani Porcelains from Japan, elegant lead crystals from Germany and Florentine tole ware from Italy. But each lamp is still individually inspired and created by hand. With great care the lamps are richly embellished with hand finished mountings, handsome hardware accents and a wide repertoire of shade treatments to complement form and function. A Wildwood lamp truly yields the promise of beauty to be cherished for years to come.
Beginning in 1903, Mr. W. A. Bulluck founded a retail furniture company in the small Southern town of Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
In 1962 Bulluck's grandson, Bill Kincheloe, became manager of the company. He added a special department in the store for lamps and lampshades and became fascinated by the process of making customized lamps at the request of some of his customers.
By 1970, he had created a small line of quality hand crafted lamps. Upon hiring a salesman to sell these lamps to other furniture stores, Wildwood Lamp Company was officially born.
In the 1980's, Wildwood expanded its line to include decorative accessories, floor and wall screens, mirrors and a number of eclectic pieces of furniture.
In 1992, Wildwood added McEnroe lamp company which is located in Morganton, North Carolina. With the addition of McEnroe as a subsidiary, Wildwood now offers an additional style category which focuses on less formal, more casual lamps for today's way of living.
Wildwood operates its own porcelain kiln in Morganton, with artists who sculpt models and hand paint various bodies. In addition, McEnroe operates a specialized finishing facility for ceramics, wood and iron.
Chandeliers too, have been added to the Wildwood range. In 1992 Wildwood introduced selected chandelier styles in both formal and casual styling. The current offering has more than 75 styles ranging from the solid brass of Colonial America, to casual wood and iron, to elegant gold and crystal European creations.
Today, Wildwood Lamp Company occupies an 80,000 square foot facility, employs over 100 people, and hand crafts over 50,000 lamps yearly. Wildwood produces 1000 different traditional and transitional lamps styles and 3,000 accent pieces from artware of pure brass, crystal, porcelain, alabaster and other fine materials that are specially designed and chosen from sources around the globe. Each piece is painstakingly sanded, painted, polished, wired, assembled and packaged by hand in the North Carolina facility to insure the high quality and beauty that you can expect from a Wildwood Lamp.

WINSTON FURNITURE CO
Started in 1975, Winston furniture is proudly made in the U.S.A. in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Haleyville, Alabama.
In the beginning, Winston manufactured simple aluminum furniture with virgin vinyl straps. As the popularity of casual furniture increased, different styles and materials were introduced. Consumers craved comfort, and Winston answered the call by being the first company to introduce cushioned fabrics for outdoor use. These fabrics contained special mildew resistant yarns with ultraviolet stabilizers that withstood the tortures of weather.
In 1982, another milestone was passed in the casual furniture industry, and Winston was at the forefront of this new revolution — sling furniture. Simply put, sling furniture takes a specially produced fabric that is pulled taut through a channel attached to the furniture frame. The result is a sleek, firm yet remarkably comfortable piece of furniture that is easy to clean and maintain.
Today, the Winston Furniture line is comprised of cushion, sling and strap furniture with a host of styles. A variety of powder coated paint finishes and strap colors, along with over 80 fabric selections allow you to create just the look you need.
Winston International, a division of Winston Furniture, markets cast aluminum dining and seating furniture as well as wrought iron home accents. These designer pieces include etageres, planters and occasional tables.

Since 1866 the Woodard name has been upheld by master craftsmen loyal to the unparalleled standards established by founder Lyman Woodard. Beginning in the 1930’s, the Woodard family developed the first collection of hand-crafted wrought iron furniture. This innovation marked the birth of casual outdoor furniture and ultimately led to casual furniture designs made from a variety of materials, the most prominent being cast and tubular aluminum.
Throughout the years, Woodard expanded its product offering. Changing lifestyles with an emphasis on comfort prompted Woodard to enter the tubular aluminum market. Soon after, Woodard began manufacturing cast aluminum furniture, providing an assortment of quality crafted casual furniture pieces.
Today, Woodard continues the tradition of hand-crafted wrought iron furniture with the same quality craftsmanship implemented by its founder. Under the flagship Woodard brand, wrought iron, cast aluminum and tubular aluminum products are manufactured using the finest materials available, state of the art finish systems, and quality control systems second to none in the industry.

If you love early 17th and 18th Century furniture you know that the beautiful, sparkling finishes that come from major brand name companies aren't historically authentic. Early craftsmen worked with stains and finishes based on plant, vegetable and animal dyes. Their finishes, while beautiful in their own day, would hardly be considered commercially marketable by today's standards. But what if you want an authentic look, one that reproduces the aged patina of quality furniture made centuries ago? You could buy antiques and take a chance on quality, not to mention the exhoribant price. Or, you could shop from Woodland Furniture for a wide variety of case pieces such as beds, chests, night stands, tables and chairs. Each item is unique and carefully finished to be as close to authentic as possible. In designer showrooms throughout the country.

Information taken from the Woodmark Web site. Woodmark was founded in 1964 by Elliott Sherrill Wood, a man whose roots go deep into the Southern furniture industry, and a man who is known by many as “Mr. Furniture.” The company was one of the first to specialize and standardize its focus on upholstered chairs, which resulted in product value unequaled in the market place. All unneeded expense, anything that added nothing to the value of the chair, was eliminated. The Company was dedicated totally to the integrity of product, the comfort, quality and scrupulous value of chairs.
Elliott Wood began his career for his father’s wholesale rug company, and founded his own retail store in the depression year 1932. His work included a custom upholstery shop manufacturing chairs, sofas and loveseats. Wood bought frames on the New York market from such acknowledged masters as Charles Assenze, Leopold Columbo and others who supplied frames to the finest custom shops in the nation. Fabrics were supplied by some of the outstanding names in the textile world, including Arther Lee, Stroheim and Roman, Jofa, Schumacher and Cheney Brothers. Wood’s retail business gave him access to the best upholstery plants where he could study and absorb their principles of construction and fine workmanship.
In 1937, Elliott Wood converted his retail shop entirely to the manufacturing of furniture, and he named his company Heritage Furniture. The original plant was on Broad Street, and later moved to English Street in High Point, North Carolina. In 1946 Wood christened Founders Furniture Company, and some years later was one of the original stockholders in Henredon Furniture. Wood went on to start Woodmark in 1964. The other companies Wood was instrumental in establishing in the early days of his career continue today as active manufacturers in the furniture industry, companies whose names are synonymous with fine-crafted, quality furniture.
As Woodmark continued to grow under Wood’s management, he went on to start Stanton-Cooper, (manufacturer of sofas, sofa beds, and loveseats), Dansen Contemporary, (manufacturer of modern and contemporary upholstery), Bradington-Young, (recliners), and several other furniture-related companies. Elliott Wood’s sights were always toward fine quality and the upper echelons of taste. He helped raise the taste level of Southern furniture manufacturers, in general, to the enviable level it has now earned. Seventeen individuals who worked for Elliott Wood later became Presidents of furniture companies, including the largest and most important companies in the industry today.
Woodmark continues to manufacture all of the product lines from Wood’s different companies; sofas, loveseats, sofa beds, chairs and recliners, all made with sound engineering, fine quality and attention to detail - the same basic principals of product integrity, comfort and quality that were Elliott Wood’s Benchmarks in 1964. Seating comfort, visual satisfaction and structural integrity are ultimate goals in the design of all Woodmark products.

The late Eighteenth century was a revolutionary period for furniture in Great Britain. Imports of mahogany, an ideal material for carving, allowed great innovations in style. The influences of Italian, French, and even Chinese forms inspired those innovations more abundantly than has been seen before or since. When George III ascended the throne in 1760 the changes were well underway, with Thomas Chippendale leading the way. His Gentlemen and Cabinet-Maker's Director, published in 1754, illustrates the adaptation of the new styles to functions of all kinds. By the 1770's they were being produced in the new world as well. Olde World Designs brings these important pieces, as well as other outstanding styles in traditional mahogany to you and your customer. Each piece is built by hand, and carved by hand, from plantation-grown mahogany solids and veneers. Joints are traditional mortise-and-tenon and dovetail. Brass fittings are hand-cast as well. Every item, from their early Georgian bench to the early 20th century stacking bookcase, is carefully modeled after the original. Take time to browse through the pieces in this line, and also to peruse the texts of authorities on the Georgian period as well as Chippendale's own drawings. World Design also offers Classic English and Country French style furniture in Olde World Pine. All furniture is created by hand from old and antique pine and enhanced by a beautiful, water-resistant, hand waxed finish in a rich honey color. Floating panels, tops and drawers, as well as other traditional construction features highlight this classical period furniture.

Part of the Lexington Home Brands collection. It is not an understatement to say that Bob Timberlake revolutionized the furniture industry. He was a landscape artist little known outside out North Carolina homeland. All that changed in 1986 when Lexington Furniture took his vision of comfortable retreat furniture and created the Timberlake collection. And the rest as they say, is history. The success of his furniture literally took the industry by surprise. The finish, fit and look of the collection were of the highest quality and actually created a whole look of casual elegance beauty. It has been difficult to classify the furniture because it defies typical categories of traditional or contemporary, is it "relaxed formal" or "sophisticated casual"? The reality is, Timberlake was the first furniture that took on the emotion and personality of the owner. Today, the Timberlake look and finish is actually a benchmark for others who aspire to create a relaxed, personal feel to furniture. The Timberlake world includes: building supplies, artwork, furniture, apparel, accessories and more. Unfortunately, as of May 2004, Lexington is still enforcing MRP on this line.

Don Walker, the president of Yesteryear Wicker, probably never imagined that reproducing antique wicker designs would turn into such a huge business. Nor did he imagine the challenge he had as the business grew to find suppliers around the world that would provide the very high quality products he insisted on offering. Imported wicker is growing in popularity, but high quality wicker imports are very rare indeed. We're glad to say that Yesteryear Wicker is keeping the spirit of the craftsman from decades ago who carefully made each piece of wicker furniture. Products include bedroom, dining room, daybeds and futons, children's furniture, porch furniture and plenty of rockers. They currently offer a white, whitewash and a brownwash finish with excellent sample available on their website.
