We watch Antiques Road Show and admire fine craftsmanship from a bygone era. We see the longevity, beauty and the quality of pieces now admired by a generation born many years after the original craftspeople. I can’t help wonder how often this will happen in subsequent generations.
As a result of the wasteful actions of our throwaway society will there be those beautiful antiques available for future generations to admire? New Zealand Firms like Blanchetts are certainly ensuring that there is a heritage to carry on that tells our story.
Blanchetts Fine Furniture of 58 Napier Road, Palmerston North are a contrast to the wave of imported furniture. Blanchetts offer an alternative, making hand crafted furniture, using traditional methods. We use New Zealand timbers milled from sustainably managed forests and make every attempt to reduce our waste. Our furniture frames are solidly made, with joints corned blocked, screwed, glued and dowelled. We know that these will survive for future generations to enjoy and we are so proud of this.
If you are presently contemplating buying new furniture, we would ask that you seriously consider New Zealand made. We invite you to come to our factory to inspect what lies beneath the covers of our furniture. You will see solid wooden frames forming the shape of our furniture and traditional coil springs being hand tied into our classic range. You will note top grade components and quality craftsmanship. The initial investment is high but long term value is immense.
