Furniture Restoration is something that is very important to us. We don't use mass produced pieces that every other house will have, we take hand crafted, made in the USA, solid wood pieces and restore them back to new. For our newest project, The Mill Street House, we chose furniture and decor that stayed true to the age of the home. By doing this, we created an environment that showcases the beauty of all the original features this home has to offer.
Drexel Touraine French Provincial Furniture
The Drexel Furniture Company was incorporated on Nov. 10th 1903 and began making fine furniture in a small factory near Morganton in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
Drexel produced a stunning french provincial furniture set from the mid 1950s through the mid 1960s called Touraine which is still popular today.
The furniture was inspired by the curvy lines classically found in Louis XV furniture which became popular during the period of 1730 to 1775.
The unbroken curves are one of the key features of classic Louis XV furniture.
This unique style is expressed in the delicate curves of Touraine dressers which extend down from the drawers to the legs of the furniture.
The Touraine collection is one of the only french provincial collections to feature a serpentine shape.
The Set includes a larger 9 drawer Touraine chest featuring 6 side drawers and 3 smaller middle drawers along with a tall 5 drawer dressor. This unique design offers a substantial amount of storage space. A matching mirror add the depth to the space and the queen sized bed is perfect for this homes large rooms.
Club Chairs designed by Morris Futorian

These club chairs came with the original sales receipt dating them back to 1969.

Square D is an American manufacturer of electrical equipment. The company was founded on December 15, 1902 by Bryson Dexter Horton and James B. McCarthy in Chicago.
This electrical box, copyrighted in 1922, was part of the old electrical work that was removed from the job. We thought why not make a key holder out of it. We took out the inside wires, wire brushed it, and sprayed it with a hammered bronze finish, giving this piece a new purpose.
