Kittinger, Kindel, Henkel Harris, Stickley, Baker
We have a formal home and we're looking for pieces for our living room. The rest of our home is Henkel Harris. Our friend, an interior designer has suggested pieces from Kittinger or Kindel. We don't have any experience with these manufacturers. Can anyone out there tell me about their experiences with any of the manufacturers I've listed above? How to do they compare to Henkel Harris? Same, better or lesser quality?
Specifically, we're looking for newport style block and shell pieces (Sarah Slocum style and a secretary) as well as pembroke tables, a pie crust table, cocktail table, wingback chairs and an 84" sofa. We want pieces of excellent quality. Buy once and keep for a lifetime. Any suggestions for a very formal living room? Best sofas?
