Thirteen Pieces grew out of my love for fine vintage furniture. I had been collecting and refurbishing antique and vintage furniture for many years when as the operations manager for a high-end interior design firm I came to work with the finest woodworkers, finishers, upholsterers and craftsmen in New York. They admired my passion for their craft and welcomed me into their studios to learn and practice alongside them. When one day I counted Thirteen Pieces of furniture in various stages of refurbishment piled to one side of my living room, I knew it was time -- I took work space of my own and opened Thirteen Pieces, our online store.
At Thirteen Pieces we love the style and superior construction of antique and vintage furniture. Beautiful pieces that are already here and ready to lend their character to our homes. In our collection you will find an eclectic mix. Perhaps Mid-Century Modern and French Provincial are favorites … I don’t know. But over the years I have come to know an awful lot about furniture construction and design and I can pick out a quality piece of furniture from any era or style. That is what I am drawn to most. We know and love the work of the distinguished furniture designers, but we also admire the work of unknown craftsmen and of men and woman working in fine furniture companies today. Our goal is to respect their work, to preserve it, and to reinvigorate it if need be, for you to enjoy.
