Andrea and Bill believe in the value of fine, handcrafted furnishings. They see these pieces as an investment to be passed down through the generations.
That’s why we carry collections from some of the world’s best furniture makers, including the Stickley brand.
Stickley Furniture has been in operation since 1900. The brand was started by a group of brothers in the spirit of an old Flemish craftsman’s phrase Als Ik Kan, which translates to “to the best of my ability.” Gustav Stickley, the company’s first furniture designer and maker, marked his pieces with the phrase to assure customers that Stickley furniture was of the finest quality – every piece made with honor, integrity and pride.
Their first pieces used solid construction, what-you-see-is-what-you-get joinery, and the highest quality woods available. Finishes were not thick gums, but clear dyes that allowed natural grain to sparkle. It’s that commitment to quality that resulted in beautiful, practical, and exceedingly strong and long-lasting furnishings. And the company continues these founding practices to this day, 117 years later.
Recently, at their annual Dealer Weekend event, the L & J.G. Stickley company honored Reid’s Fine Furnishings as a Champion of Per Capita Sales. This means we’ve shared our love of the Stickley brand with the highest population percentage of any Stickley dealer anywhere.
We’re proud to receive this award, and hope you’ll stop by our showrooms in Roanoke or Forest to learn more about the Stickley story and how these incredible furnishings will be the antiques you pass along to your family.
