After a beautiful weekend trip to Asheville in the mountains of North Carolina at the beginning of December, we have lots of great things to share with you!! One of our favorite places to visit while we are there is the historic Grove Park Inn. This beautiful old stone hotel draws visitors from around the world to tour it’s amazing architecture, impressive collection of antique furniture, period reproductions, and gallery of of current American furniture artists. This furniture gallery is located directly behind the Inn, and carries everything from upholstery to casegoods, crafts, textiles, even locally made musical instruments!!! It is well worth spending an hour (or three!) browsing through the unique handmade pieces and seeing what great style and amazing craftsmanship is still being produced in the USA!! Enjoy some of the pieces that caught our eyes!

OK, so you will have to forgive us, we have actually been back for a few weeks now, but phew, we’ve been busy catching back up!!! Getting over jetlag, catching back up on our business here in the States, and of course taking a few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving with our families! We are very happy to be home, though, and eager to continue working on our Chinese business as it gets off the ground!
Here are some pictures of our showroom that we never got around to posting while we were in Suzhou. We will also be putting a gallery up soon of all of the pieces of furniture that are showcased in Suzhou–so check back soon!! And remember–all these pieces can be special ordered from China or the US, so if you see something you can’t live without, let us know!!
