Butler speciality furniture looks good on the web. But I am concerned if this is good loking but shoddy and cheap chinese made furniture?

Any one has any experience with Butler furniture?

Thanks.

RE: Butler Speciality Furniture - Any Experience?

I purchased a piece of Butler Furniture a couple of years ago after seeing it in person in a local designer shop. I needed a specific size to set our bedroom tv on and this fit the bill. Most of our furniture is quality antique pieces we've had for thirty years and the Butler goes very well with our antiques. I don't know where it's made, but yes I'm assuming it's China. If I had it to do over, I would buy it again and would also consider buying another Butler piece because their designs are very classy and appealing and they do look good in person....and I'm kinda picky.

Thank you. Where did you purchase i? Did you look at it before you purchased it?

I did see the piece in person before I purchased it and I approved of the quality. We live in Southern California and I purchased it at a little boutique designer shop called Unique Accents. I still frequent the shop and have recently seen other Butler items there in person and think they are all very nice and, as I said before, they blend with our nice antiques very well.

Where are you located? Is there a shop close to you that carries Butler?

I am in Rochester NY. The problem is most furniture look good on line. I find the most intriguing looking furniture with a lot of design work, seems to come from China. While I am not putting down chinese manufacturers, most of the furniture sold in American stores come from china and almost 90% of them are built to sell [ie low price point, poorer quality.

I am trying to find furniture with good style and good quality.

Thanks.
