About 1727-1786. George Hepplewhite was a remarkable English furniture maker. His light, airy designs changed the direction of furniture making. American furniture makers quickly adopted his ideas and added exquisite inlays and veneering to their designs. Delicate oval brasses were central to the completion of a piece. The patterns we use today are exact copies of antique American originals—the themes are very much in keeping with the birth of our nation. You will see eagles, revolutionary themes like cannons and flags, and harvest motifs like wheat, fruit, representing the bounty of the New World.
Sustainability. We choose our packing materials with the planet in mind. We use popcorn and newspaper. The popcorn, made from cornstarch, is a harmless alternative to Styrofoam. It is completely biodegradable and dissolves in water. The newspaper we use represents the ultimate recycling. Our employees bring it in and we reuse it!
