Construction

At Nichols & Stone, we have a long history of knowing wood and respecting it.  This is evident from the use of selectively cut trees and the wood choice best suited to the style and finish of our furniture.  Nichols & Stone's commitment to use only solid hardwoods has remained constant for generations.

The properties of wood are complex and challenging to the furniture maker due to natural variations in grain, color, and inherent moisture content.  We utilize a drying technique which brings the moisture to a workable and stable level before the wood is cut.

Our construction methods are steeped in the tradition of furniture that's made to last.  Our wooden chair seats are tongue and groove constructed for maximum durability.  Compressed tenon joinery makes the delicate spindle design of our chair backs as sturdy as the seats.  Nichols & Stone's techniques in steam bending create chairs of comfort, grace and integrity unmatched in the industry.

Nichols and Stone craftsmen have built fine quality furniture for over 150 years.  In fact, some of this furniture has been in New England families for generations — treasured heirlooms that reflect the Yankee traditions of pride and continuity.

Whether your decor is traditional, country, modern or eclectic, the Nichols & Stone collection offers you a choice of styles, colors and finishes to give your dining or great room a warm, inviting feeling.  The authenticity of the designs makes them right at home with family heirlooms and treasures.  Indeed, these designs have evolved from generations of refinement.

Every piece is crafted for function as well as beauty.  Chair seats and backs are pitched for comfort.  Extension tables open up for elegant dining.  Buffets and cupboards offer generous storage.  Occasional pieces give just the right accent to any room.  Nichols & Stone designs are specifically coordinated for decorating flexibility.  We’re certain that you’ll find items here that will fit within your own personal décor, setting a unique and welcoming style in your home.
