You may have seen rocking chairs, dining chairs, dining tables, cabinets, and desks for sale at very low prices. Then, seeing the price of something of ours, you think: "That's a lot of money for a chair!" (or whatever). If it is all about price, we can't compete. If it is about value in relation to price, we lead.

Our furniture is:

  • Designed for comfort, beauty, utility, and longevity, not for ease of making.
  • Built of cherry, walnut, maple, mahogany, and mesquite, not "cherry finish," "walnut finish"...
  • Handmade in the United States by skilled and dedicated craftsmen and women using construction and finishing techniques of the highest order.
  • Finished to reveal the color, figure, and character of fine wood and to delight your eye and hand.
  • Purchased for investment, not consumption. You can use it for a lifetime and pass it on.
  • Guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the investor.

In particular, our chairs are:

  • Contoured to fit your body (See How We Design a Chair). Curves and contours are far more difficult to produce and, if they are in the right places, are far more valuable in use than straights and flats.
  • Sculpted into a coherent form that graces its room with distinction.
  • Constructed to stay tight.
  • Easy to use for they are light.
  • Guaranteed to to beautiful and comfortable FOR YOU, either by our promise of a full refund or by a trial in your home for free.
