Ron joined his father and brother as an upholsterer in the early 1980's. Working with a myriad of fabrics in every possible pattern and texture, Ron's attention to detail and eye for color help complete each piece to make it unique and ideal for the space in which it was designed to be placed.
Since the mid-1980's Rob has been the genius behind the wood finishing side of the business. His artistic abilities are showcased in the finishes he puts on every piece of furniture. A painter in his own right, Rob uses his finely-tuned aestheticism to add the "finishing" touches to all of the company's fine wood pieces.
