Here is a quote from Theodore Alexander that encapsulates their philosophy about craftsmanship and quality. "Every process and every detail, from a carved chair leg to a table finish or inlay, is executed by hand. Our craftsmen employ time-honoured techniques to craft truly beautiful furniture you’ll fall madly in love with.
All surfaces of our furniture are prepared, sanded and finished, even those areas that are not always visible. This includes the undersides, the backs and the inside of the drawer boxes among others.
We believe that the person who owns a piece of Theodore Alexander furniture should take comfort in knowing the item can be viewed from any side and that we’ve made the piece using a time-honoured, handcrafted method that is the true mark of high quality."
