I think the warm weather is finally here to stay! When you walk outside and see the flowers blooming, you slow down, take a deep breath and make that walk last as long as possible!
There are 3 buildings at Charlton Furniture, and when the good weather comes….we do a lot of visiting between them.
And those visits make me appreciate how much extraordinary furniture we carry.
I have been working here for over 15 years – I came here with little knowledge about furniture other than the fact that I loved it! I love the colors and patterns of fabrics, the feel and smell of leather, and probably most of all, the beauty and uniqueness of each piece of wood used in the many styles we offer.
Each board is painstakingly chosen to work with the others used in the case. The grain patterns, the knots, the sap marks, and the pits are all are taken into consideration when selecting where each piece will be used. And it’s not always the clear pieces that make the front- sometimes those with the most character are the ones featured!
These qualities are most evident in our American made lines. There are too many to list – each with its own niche. All of them offer different wood species, finishes, distress levels, and hardware choices - options that make your piece of furniture unique to you.
A bedroom set from Millcraft Furniture just arrived this week that exemplifies all of the above. Beautifully constructed of rustic cherry, the finish on this set is so smooth you just want to keep running your hand over it. The above picture is the coordinating entertainment center. It shows the option of adding a stunning ebony inlay detail that highlights the abilities of the craftsman that hand laid it. It’s not only beautiful to look at, but constructed to last. To paraphrase this company’s philosophy, they “live simply, and that simplicity requires hard work, sharpened senses, and a diligent eye for detail. Lest we forget…simple isn’t always easy”
At Charlton Furniture we appreciate that sentiment as much as the furniture that results from it.
