Affordable Custom Hardwood Furniture

Dining Furniture, Hardwood Custom Furniture

It started with a pie safe for our new home.  With our open floor plan, we had a lot of space but, little storage. So, then we got a hutch and another pie safe (double this time). Followed by a coffee table, a deacon’s bench, chairs, a trestle table and multiple sets of nesting tables.  Our final purchases from Housatonic Hardwoods were a bed frame and an entertainment center.

Since we no longer had a pick-up truck, Bob and his boys kindly, at no charge, delivered them to our home.  Perhaps they wanted to get a peek of the house the Amish furnished!”

This beautiful custom timber frame home overlooking Lake Waramaug and the Litchfield hills is a great example of the use of a wide plank character floor.  Staining the floor a darker color helped to create a uniform color, but also allowed the knots and imperfections of a character grade floor to show through.  This is perfect for a casual weekend home in the country.
