        We received our furniture last week and I wanted to tell you how completely thrilled we were! The pieces are AMAZING! At first we thought we should have bought less (we spent $10,000) so we could “test the waters” so to speak but now we regret not buying more for our whole house. We’ll be back soon. Can’t wait to see what other wonderful pieces you have to offer. Your craftsmen are wonderful! Our dining room furniture looks brand new. Unbelievable! Thank you so much! Please pass on our praises!!

        I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous Sligh Lowry desk. Your woodworkers did an amazing job refinishing it in exactly the stain we discussed and it is just perfect in my home office. My interior decorator (Ilene April) was just telling me that she had another client buying dining room chairs from you and she had sent custom fabric to you to have them reupholstered. She wants to come in one day and see your shop and I have another friend in the city interested as well. I’ll email or call you and hopefully we can come by one of these days and they can see your operation in person too! It is very impressive.

      ABOUT PHOTOS: We take our photos in a controlled lighting studio to show as much detail as possible. We do NOT Photoshop out blemishes. In almost all cases, the photos were taken before any work is done improving the piece, therefore the piece you get is often even better looking than it was in the photos. In some situations when we get the exact same piece back in stock that we've had before, we will use photos from a previous shoot. In these situations, the piece you get will be in the same (often better) condition than the photos.
