Kittinger Furniture Company
For over 150 years, The Kittinger Furniture Company has set an unparalleled standard among manufacturers of fine furniture. The Kittinger Furniture Company of Buffalo NY still produces the world’s finest handcrafted furniture using the same care, detailing and innovation for which it has been renowned throughout the century.
In 1937 in conjunction with Colonial Williamsburg Kittinger Furniture was licensed to reproduce and adapt pieces for its collection from 1937 to 1990. During this period, Kittinger Furniture reproduced more than 200 pieces for Colonial Williamsburg. In addition, they have provided furniture or the White House and foreign heads of state since the 1960’s.
The attention to detail with Kittinger furniture is second to none. Many of these items feature exacting details that make these items as close as possible to the period original in which they are being reproduced. The attention to detail starts with the best wood selection, best woodworkers and skilled craftsmen, great quality carved details, top quality choice of exacting hardware, rose head nails, hand dovetailed joinery, hand chamfered drawers and then a highly complex finish that is rarely duplicated outside of the factory. These are hand crafted and finished works of art with each piece having its own distinct character or story. In truth, no two Kittinger pieces are exactly the same.
