When I buy big items like furniture, I like to make sure that they will last forever. One of my most precious possessions is a chair that my grandfather made himself. It's got so many memories for me--from getting to sit in it when I visited my grandparents house and hearing the story of how he chose the wood and grandma chose the style she wanted, to when they painted it together. I hope that some of our furniture can also get passed down to my children and grandchildren. This blog is all about choosing heirloom quality furniture that will last and last.
