Historical Perspectives

Traditional Collection

In the crucible of the 1800s, American craftsmen embarked on a transformative journey, refining and elevating the art of furniture design beyond the confines of old-world Victorian England and European aesthetics. The prevailing Victorian and European furniture of the time often exhibited shallow joinery and an elaborate, ornate, and sometimes garish overall presentation.

In response to this, American innovators ushered in a new era, introducing distinctive improvements that became hallmarks of the period. At Thomas William Furniture, we draw inspiration from this golden age of innovation, celebrating the departure from the ornate excesses of Victorian and European designs.

The American approach embraced a broader selection of woods, allowing for a diverse palette that enhanced the aesthetic and structural qualities of each piece. Joinery was no longer merely functional but evolved into a deeper and stronger form, reflecting a commitment to craftsmanship that prioritized longevity and robustness.

The overall presentation underwent a profound shift, moving away from the complicated and ornate to embrace a more simplified and graceful aesthetic. This transformation is at the core of our philosophy at Thomas William Furniture. We take pride in creating furniture that is solid, strong, and unadorned – a homage to the elegance found in simplicity.

Our commitment to crafting graceful, unpretentious pieces reflects not only a design choice but a dedication to the enduring principles of 19th-century American craftsmanship. At Thomas William Furniture, we invite you to experience the timeless beauty of furniture inspired by an era that valued strength, simplicity, and the intrinsic grace found in unadorned forms.
