What do these things have in common?

Dimes 4 drawer chest Crown Point kithen 1

What do these things have in common? One, an Arts & Crafts style kitchen is from Crown Point Cabinetry in Claremont, NH. The other is a tiger maple 4 drawer chest from D.R. Dimes in Northwood, NH.

A few things are obvious: They both are made in New Hampshire, by two companies that are masters of their craft. The both use hardware by Horton Brasses..(what did you think we’d put someone else’s up here?). But more than that? Both are wood. Yes, OK, but that’s not what I am going for.

Both the kitchen and the chest are handmade one of a kind items that are built to last…forever. In a world full of disposable goods-there are numerous smaller companies that just do it different. We are fortunate to work extensively with both of these companies, and many more, that all share some common things. None of us make anything disposable. Everything is done with an eye toward making it the best that it can be. In the case of Crown Point, the kitchens are engineered and designed to be beautiful, functional, and durable. In the case of Dimes, each piece is a heirloom-a future antique if you will.

To borrow a line from Glen Hueybuild something great. To apply that to our hardware it means make something that is looks beautiful, feels even better, and lasts..forever. We are fortunate to work with many companies around the world that believe that just as we do. We hope you do too.
