I love designing kitchens. Every kitchen I design, large or small, is important to me and gets my full attention--but some projects are extra special. We are going to Nantucket on Monday to measure up one of those extra special jobs. What a privilege it is to be involved in such an awesome historical project. -David T.
We did this kitchen in a 1990s tri-level house in a town south of Chicago several years ago. From the outside the house looks like all the other houses on that street, but when you walk through the door you would think you were in an 1800s Pennsylvania farm house. Our "collected" kitchen style and their assortment of antiques and folk art really give the interior a great "old house" feel. You don't have to have a period home to utilize the period style. -David T.
This was a fun project we did a few years ago in a stone mill on a large horse farm south of Lexington. We redid the upstairs using Shaker style built-ins with hidden features and renovated the downstairs as office space with a "collected" kitchen. This would be a great place to go to work every day! The outside mill stream is beautiful. David T.
We started doing redware pottery in 1984. In the late 1980s I went to England to research early English and German redware. I toured the Victoria and Albert as well as the British museums and came home with hundreds of photos. This was long before I could Google it. The photo below is of a 17th century English reproduction thrown plate just done this week by our master potter Chris Woods. It is awesome. Chris has been with us for 30 years.What a fantastic talent! -David T.
