Fine Furniture

Lisa Rice and Decorating Den Interiors will find the exact pieces of fine furniture that bring functionality and purpose to your space. Many pieces will lend character and personality and will truly make your house a home that reflects your taste and style.

Quality, Function & Style

Fine furniture reflects the quality of workmanship including the methods of joinery used to hold a furniture piece together. Fine furniture generally has joinery that is more complex than mass-produced furniture and will keep the furniture piece strong. In fact, you should be able to pass it down to family.

Master craftsman Franklin Gottshall lists 3 rules to building quality furniture:

  1. It must serve a purpose and be useful.
  2. It must be made with the highest quality of construction.
  3. It should be beautiful but the beauty should never compromise the first and second rules.

You may find yourself selecting just a single piece for your space that will be a show-stopper, or you may buy several pieces.

Decorating Den Interiors offer full home interior design and decoration including product selection and purchasing. Part of Lisa’s consultation is a discussion about budget. Many pieces of fine furniture are expensive because of using luxury materials and finishes. Even delivery will probably be white glove.

Some of our brand name suppliers of fine furniture to the trade only are Caracole, Lexington, Lazar, Braxton Culler, Bernhardt Interiors and Century, to name a few.


Fine Furniture

If you are paying for a piece of fine furniture, what are you getting?

The piece should either provide a stunning focal point or be a piece of classical proportions with special finishes. However, beauty should not be just skin deep. Behind a cabinet’s doors should be quality construction that provides storage details, lighting and anything to make it a piece you will love always.

If you like swapping out furniture on a regular basis then this type of furniture is not for you. However, if you appreciate a furniture piece that is a work of art, then purchasing fine furniture will be an investment.

Custom Upholstery

If you are looking for hand-crafted, custom upholstered furniture using the finest fabrics and leathers, then you have come to the right interior designer. Custom upholstery is the ultimate way to design a room that epitomizes your particular taste and style.

With choices in seat construction and firmness, enjoy using the highest quality furniture you will ever own. Once you and Lisa have selected fabrics for your upholstered pieces, you will choose premium wood finishes, nail heads and trim.


If you have a favorite piece of furniture that is looking shabby or tired, Lisa will make sure that it can fit in with your new décor. She will find you the prefect fabric replacement and discuss the type of cushioning you prefer, then arrange collection and delivery to an upholsterer. New padding and a pleasing fabric will bring your piece back to life!

You may be surprised to find out that it is not always the most inexpensive choice. The truth is that reupholstering furniture can often cost as much as replacing it (and sometimes more). But there is so much joy in having an upholstered piece that has been custom made just for you.
