About Us - French Antique Furniture
What began innocently enough as a young boy riding around upstate New York with his mother while she shopped for antiques in the late 1950's has turned into a serious addiction with apparently no known cure. In fact, the obsession is so bad that our 31,000 square foot showroom is bursting at the seams and our workshop is running at a clip typically reserved for Elves in December.
The story of Old Plank
The fuel to feed this fire is most often found in the English Midlands, Italian Countryside or the charming South of France. Dozens of European trips have yielded thousands of treasures brought back to America in shipping containers and suitcases (when necessary). Sometimes in our travels we find an item that is so special it would be a shame for it to be the only one of its kind. When this happens we study it, take precise notes on how it was built and construct full-size templates which allow our craftsman to create an authentic reproduction and scale it to any size needed.
