If you have browsed any of our fine reproduction furniture you will have noticed two things. First, the quality and beauty of the pieces is unparalleled. Second, they can all be made in custom sizes, wood types, configurations, etc. What you see in the images on our website are the finished products. They are the results of many, many man-hours of hard work and skilled labor by a small team of furniture makers in England. Their ability to produce custom furniture that will become the antiques of tomorrow is amazing! We thought it would be nice to share a glimpse of that process and the people behind it, so they English office put together some pictures and sent them over for everyone to enjoy.
