Southwood Furniture Corporation
More than thirty years ago, Southwood Furniture Corporation and Historic New England, then the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, introduced reproductions of several classic furniture pieces. The collection consists of pieces based on the original furnishings in the house museums and study collection of Historic New England.
Southwood offers an extensive line of skirted and leather upholstery complimenting seventeen historic style periods drawn from the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries. The company has become the manufacturer of choice by professional designers specifying both classic designs and traditional fashion for some of the most prestigious residential and commercial applications domestically and around the world.
In 1973, three individuals who were committed to specializing in the finest eighteenth-century upholstery reproductions founded Southwood. From the very beginning, they were determined to become nationally recognized as the very best at authentic interpretations of historic designs. The achievement of this objective was accelerated by licensee agreements with historic museums. The association with historians and curators, the availability of documented antiques, the access to an extensive furniture reference library, and more than forty-five years of exposure to numerous museums provided the critical expertise to identify and correctly reproduce the finest pieces from the "golden age of furniture." Southwood Furniture is available through fine dealers across the country.
