Hand Made Furniture
When building your furniture collection, you will want to pay special attention to acquiring at least some hand-crafted pieces. Not only do these furniture pieces tend to be beautiful in their artistry, but they also have a soul that turns inanimate objects into living artistic expressions of life's value. Furniture replicated from quieter, gentler era balances out the high-speed machines of today. If you have a passion for hand-made, try to add one new piece to your collection each year.
Rooms breathe with energy and truth if you give them "gifts" of hand-crafted furniture. Why do hand-crafted bring so much emotional comfort? What is it about a hand-made piece of furniture that energizes a space? The answers to these questions all stem from the rare beauty and craftsmanship that have been treasured by generations. Hand-made reproductions of antiques take you back to an earlier age, a time of handmade artistry long before the dawn of the information age.
When an artist puts his heart, hands, and soul into his work, the object is infused with his spirit. Hand-made furniture pieces are more than mere possessions scattered around the house; they are indeed your friends, physically and viscerally adored. As you move these lovable objects from place to place, room to room, or house to house, they bring warmth and continuity wherever you live. They share your life with you. Hand made reproductions of historical designs connect you to the past, reminding you of men and women who lived by the natural rhythms of the day, waking at sunrise and going to bed at sunset, at a time when people took pride in their workmanship. Patience was a necessity in order to accomplish the degree of refinement expected in handmade objects.
