Comments from our Patrons

Hi Gary et al,

I purchased your rocking chair at Solstice for my wife.

It has been a wonderful addition to our home. We love it and everyone who visits us and sits in it loves it. It is amazing that one chair can fit so many sizes and shapes of people, but this chair does it with style and grace.

One comment from our grown children was "Who will inherit this heirloom?" A little premature to be concerned with but an interesting thought.

Hope your business is going well.

Hi Gary,

My wife and I with her friends from San Antonio made a trip to the Fredericksburg area and visited your facility in early 2002 when you took the time to show us your shop and new home as it was under construction (We are from Grosse Ile, Michigan), since that time I have seen many 'look alike' furniture pieces in several area art fairs for twice as much money, no where near the quality and comfort, and without the 'art' of your designs. We still have a place for a few The Wilson Chairs and a The Terrell Side Table, at some opportune time we will fill that void.

Well, finally getting back to you. Loving the rocker with C., our beautiful son. He came into the world a couple weeks late . . .at 9 1/2lb. 36 hours of labor and unassisted by any medical interventions . . .he came out pink and healthy and beautiful . . .Do I sound like a proud new Mom??? Thanks again. I will spread the word of the great rocking chair at any appropriate opportunity. Good luck to the continued success of your family business.

It was a pleasure,

Briefly, the rocker arrived in perfect condition, and the delivery man from Overnite was perhaps the most pleasant and courteous I've come across in years. The crate was a pleasure in itself to "unwrap."

My wife was thrilled with the rocker, and used it last evening to rock (of course!) the baby to sleep. Did I mention that R. and I have a 7 month, and a 23 month old sons? More to follow, we hope. I often comment to those professionals whom I refer business, that when they look good, I look good. Let's say that your rocker made me look really good!

To conclude, the rocker is magnificent.

Best regards,

The walnut rocker arrived as promised. It's absolutely gorgeous and my wife is in love with it.

Now how do I get my 13 yr old son out of it?

The rocker was great. The party was great. The retiree really liked it. I am getting a photo scanned to send to you so you can see his big smile. Thanks for everything. The shipping was fine, everything arrived ok.

Dear Weeks Family,

I just want you to know how happy N. is with her new rocking chair. It arrived yesterday, right on her birthday, as promised, and she fell in love with it immediately. She's wanted a rocking chair for many years but never liked any she sat in. But when she sat in your chair she knew she'd found a home. She loves it and I am thrilled. And it is so beautiful to look at and a pleasure to touch. I've been trying for more than 30 years and have never before been able to give her a gift that pleased her as much as your beautiful chair. I don't know what I'm going to do next year.

Thanks for making such wonderful things and thanks for all the extra effort to make this happen for me on her birthday.

Best regards,

Just wanted to let you know how much we LOVE our rocking chair! It was the best "having-a-baby" gift I could ever have received!

We are looking to buy a dining table now . . . would you send us your latest catalogue and price list?

Thanks so much,
J. and B.M.

Thanks for your follow up. We've been away since Xmas, so just getting to this now. We did receive the chair and are absolutely thrilled with it. It is just beautiful and extremely comfortable! Your rocking chair is a piece of art. Thank you again.

Dear Gary:

The rocking chair arrived in perfect condition on Friday. It is just beautiful, and so beautifully made. It's comfortable for both me and my husband — I'm 5'9" and he's 6'3" — and so solidly built it doesn't make a peep nor creak. I spend a lot of time nursing our baby and I thought I might need to add cushions for more comfort, but no matter how long I sit it's still comfortable. It is truly a thing of beauty and comfort.

Thank you so much!
