One Example From Our Line Drawings Library

We think of our furniture as an investment by you.  While we can offer no guarantee, we do believe the price of our furniture will continue to appreciate in value over time.

Every customer receives an authenticated and numbered certificate of ownership citing the construction dates, primary and secondary woods used and the name of the furniture maker.

We are proud of what we do.  Properly cared for, our furniture will last generations.  Hence our name...... Heirloom Period Furniture.
