Our award-winning upholsterers have been crafting New England masterpieces and resurrecting antiques for three generations. From the solid hardwood frame to the hand-stitched fabric and finishes, your custom-made piece is a true labor of love.

It’s a simple truth that the old ways are the best ways. We use only the finest natural materials, such as horsehair padding and goose down pillows, for your traditional upholstery work, employing 18th century methods to create pieces of extraordinary beauty and comfort.

Above all – and for every client – we insist on impeccable quality. Our custom upholstered furniture now resides in the finest homes, the choicest hotels and the most illustrious public spaces.

Your custom-made furniture and upholstery is created by hand in our Boston workroom. Each stage of our process is the duty of a skilled artisan. These are men and women with centuries of institutional knowledge and decades of experience.

A typical piece will take 10-12 weeks for our New England craftsmen to produce – the result of hours of meticulous workmanship. Old world manufacturing techniques and exceptional natural materials, such as solid hardwood frames, live within the form.

This is furniture built to be an antique of tomorrow. When you take possession of your heirloom-quality piece, you can be certain that centuries of strength and solidity lie beneath it.
