The solid wood products that are coming out of America, particularly the Amish-made products, are excellent. When it comes to quality, they are doing a much, much better job in the way that the furniture is built and the way that it is finished.
Borkholder has long offered a more traditional look, and the looks that they are achieving now are really exciting. Beyond this, the people at Borkholder have been phenomenal to deal with, from the people at the order desk to the shipping department. That’s what I believe makes Borkholder outstanding, besides the obvious, which is really well-made, quality furniture.
Well styled and built by artisans of great solid woods. Many wonderful styles in traditional and transitional. Great values for the quality conscious consumers.
Borkholder has good quality and they put their furniture together the right way. I tell my customers that when wood comes from overseas it will never live up to our temperature changes and eventually it will split, while furniture made from maple, cherry and oak grown in the U.S. will be an heirloom.
I think that furniture should be an investment, and as such, something classic that you can live with that transcends styles or fashions or trends. It’s functional for your lifestyle, but it has an emotional side that you love to live with as an expression of your own personality.
The quality of their furniture is fantastic! It is so nice to find furniture that has actually been built with solid wood and not just made to look like wood! I recently just bought 2 of the Arroyo Seco nightstands made from quarter-sawn oak that I absolutely LOVE the grain in! They are gorgeous and you can tell they’ll last for generations!
