MacKenzie-Dow Fine Furniture

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

FourPedestalTableWhen you purchase a fine quality design from MacKenzie-Dow, you’ll experience a surprisingly timeless blend of Old World heritage and modern-day practicality. That’s because we specialize in the craftsmanship of superb quality 17th and 18th-century European-inspired solid wood furnishings that resonate as well today as they did years ago.

Situated in West Virginia, our local craftsmen and women employ centuries-old woodworking and joinery techniques to construct elegant creations that promise both enduring value and sophisticated style. Working with Wild Black Cherry, a species native to America’s abundant Appalachian forests, we appreciate nature’s blemishes that do not affect the structural integrity of our product. In fact, small splits, knots and other natural “defects” become attributes rather than flaws with the addition of an unparalleled finish that begs to be touched, not to mention used in a home full of life.At MacKenzie-Dow, we don’t make excuses for the ingrained characteristics of solid Appalachian Black Cherry. In fact, we celebrate them with an incomparably soft, hard-planed finish that lets nature do all the talking.

Inspired by the sturdy furnishings common to the 17th and 18th century English pubs and taverns, MacKenzie-Dow’s English Pub Collection offers designs for every room in the home. Casual, yet sophisticated, these authentic, one-of-a-kind pieces employ age-old cabinetmaking techniques such as planking, dovetailing, mortise and tenon, and square peg construction.

Kingsley-Bate: America’s Leading Manufacturer of Teak Outdoor Furniture

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

kingsley bate outdoor furniture winston-salemBritish craftsmen of the 18th century discovered what their Eastern counterparts had known for centuries, that teak has qualities unlike any other wood. It’s ability to withstand the rigors of adverse climate, yet weather attractively, make it the ideal choice for outdoor furniture. As America’s leading manufacturer of teak outdoor furniture, we use only premium quality teak and precise mortise and tenon joinery in the construction of our furniture. Simply put, Kingsley-Bate sets the standard for quality, value and design innovation that other companies follow.

Committed to Environmental Responsibility

Offering only the highest quality products to the casual furniture market, Kingsley-Bate also leads the way in the responsible manufacture of its furniture. Preservation of the Earth’s ecological system is today a major concern. Indiscriminate deforestation of the Amazon Basin and other rainforests has led to widespread suspicion by the public of those companies in the teak industry. Kingsley-Bate is the first American company to use Javanese teak in the manufacture of its furniture. Our teak is harvested from carefully controlled plantations, established in Indonesia by the Dutch in the Mid-19th century. The Indonesian government allows the felling of a limited number of trees each year, and ensures that an equal amount of reforestation takes place. In 1983 Kingsley-Bate, in conjunction with the Indonesian government and its people, undertook to develop a teak furniture program in Java. Since then, Indonesia and Kingsley-Bate have shown that such a program can be implemented without detriment to that country’s natural resources. Due to the increasing demand for this beautiful hardwood, Kingsley-Bate now uses a select amount of Burmese teak in its productions. Whether Javanese or Burmese, you can be assured that we use only the finest quality teak in our furniture.kingsley bate wood furniture

berg children's bedroom furnitureFrom: 

Since 1984 Berg Furniture has been designing and producing innovative children’s furniture. Throughout the years many of the designs, styles, and collections have changed but the heart behind the products remained the same. We know that the environment around us is affecting our lives. We know that a growing child will develop into a better person, if he or she will be surrounded by loving people and a supportive environment. Many of our products are designed in light of that concept! We call it Smart Bedroom Systems.

We manufacture products that make children feel excited and happy. We design bedrooms that help children be organized, make them feel cozy and provide them with a place to socialize with friends and family. Our products encourage creativity and curiosity, this is the true value that every parent is looking for when they buy products for their kids. When making the kids happy, we are making the parents happy. This is not theory, but fact. We at Berg are confident that our products will provide your children with a great environment in which to grow-up and develop.

Made In The USA!

Buying USA made products strengthens America as a nation. It keeps Americans productive so they can contribute to society and constantly invigorate the economy. Working people pay taxes, contribute to the social security system and help sustain a supporting budget for the children and the elderly. It is a vital part of being independent.

American products are manufactured to meet a code of standards. This complex set of rules is a result of many years of experience and a long process of trial and error. These regulations, which have been developed with American producers, are a benefit to the public. They are designed to keep the consumer safe and provide the high level of quality that everyone expects.

American manufacturers are living within the society and understand the needs and requirements of the American consumer. They listen to concerns of the actual people that use their products. Producing products for your community makes you accountable and responsible, thus raising the quality and improving the service.
