Resisting trends

In our shop, we resist the trends that come and go.  Recently it has been imitation antiques which became popular, using glazes and distressing techniques to give “character” to woodwork, cabinetry and furniture that otherwise would be exposed for its lack of quality in materials and workmanship.  We study joinery from the past that has worked for generations and combine it with the finest materials we can find. 

We try to stay in a timeless, Classic approach, relying on the quality of the craftsmanship and materials to provide the character.  Fashions come and go, and the latest trends soon fade in popularity.  Who would not prefer the timelessly soft hand of silk or the heft and warmth of a fine alpaca wool over the “qualities” of, say, the polyesters of the 1960’s and ’70’s?  Why invest in something that will need to be replaced or remodeled in ten or twenty years because it is hopelessly outdated? 

We are building heirlooms that will last for generations.   If you have an appreciation for quality and craftsmanship and don’t need artificial “character” we can provide the woodwork that will satisfy your needs and your eye for years to come.
