It DOES make a difference WHERE
Furniture is made—HOW it is made
Surface tells little of the real value in a piece of furniture. It is
the interior construction that is the basis of value. Parts that you
cannot see; hidden details of which, perhaps, you do not give a
thought. Yet it is upon them that quality depends; that reputa
tion is won and maintained.
Our Company of Mastercraftsmen design and make after very
precise and insistent specifications. By every measure and com
parison, no better furniture can be made—and there is a very
definite economic advantage in our maker-retailer service—that
affects prices through the elimination of multiple profits—a saving
we share with our customers. Always high grade; never high
priced is a fact—and for a very definite reason.
