From the Factory- A French Blue Finish Story

I love walking through our case factory.  Hearing the machines, smelling the sawdust, and seeing the hand work that goes into each and every piece is something to appreciate.  Our artisans, each and every one of them, are extremely skilled at what they do.  Whether buffing a dining table top to create the luster and shine,  hand painting gold leaf onto a cove molding or hand distressing with rocks and chains some of our casual pieces--the hours, labor and love that go into each piece of furniture is hard to communicate or even share with you, the end consumer.  The result is what we communicate, that finished piece that becomes a part of someone's home.  However what it took to make it...that is something that many people don't actually think about when they purchase a piece of furniture. 

That is why I love this series of posts, From the Factory.  I feel it brings you, the reader/designer/homeowner/sales associate a little closer to us.  What started as just an idea, has blossomed into a regular blog post and Pinterest Board where I try and highlight a few of the incredible finish combinations that we see coming through our factory in Hickory.  Hats off to all of our customers who are creating some truly unique and fabulous pieces of furniture, and hats off to our craftspeople for all the time they spend making them.

Here are a few highlights in our French Blue finish.  Enjoy, and happy creating!
