European linen  -  Linen is a material made from the fibers of the flax plant. It has been used for table coverings, bed coverings and clothing for centuries. The exclusivity of linen stems from the fact that it is difficult and time consuming to produce (flax in itself requires a great deal of attention in its growth). Flax is difficult to weave because of its lack of elasticity, and therefore is more expensive to manufacture than cotton. The benefits of linen however, are unmatched and Europe has long produced the most respected quality linen. Due to the parallel arrangement of its fibers, linen is a stronger, sturdier fabric than cotton. In addition, linen is highly absorbent (perfect for dish towels and napkins). Due to its insulating qualities, linen coverings provide cooling benefits. The subtle combination of firmness and softness of linen make this fabric a favorite. Linen can be machine-washed (and grows softer with time and use) and then ironed while still damp with a hot iron. Linen products tend to outlast cotton, enduring up to 20 years of use.
Federal style  -  Historically the period of 1780-1820. A style that emerged in the US after the revolutionary war that was similar to Sheraton, Hepplewhite and Adams utilizing precise, simplified forms. Classicism provided influences as the young country considered itself the rightful heir to the republic of ancient Rome. Sparingly used decorative motifs such as acanthus leaves, pineapples, scrolls and pilasters are common Federal design elements.

Foundry  -  A foundry is a factory which produces metal castings from either ferrous or non-ferrous alloys. Metals are turned into parts by melting the metal into a liquid, pouring the metal in a mold, and then removing the mold material or the casting. We cast all of our decorative elements in our own foundry.
Four poster bed  -  A bed style that has four posts, one in each corner, that are generally capped at the top. The four poster bed was once designed to support a tester, from which curtains would hang and enclose the bed protecting sleepers from drafts and insects.
