Thomas Schwenke, Inc. is a specialist company dealing primarily in authentic original furniture of the American Federal period. The inventory features an array of dining tables and chairs, sideboards, desks, easy chairs, sofas, tables, dressing tables, and mirrors. All items are back by a written guarantee of authenticity.
American Federal furniture reflects the economic, political and social development of the New Republic from 1785 to 1820. As the country prospered, its citizens built larger homes and turned to the finest cabinetmakers to furnish them. American Federal furniture is characterized by its refined formality, a distinctive sense of proportion, scale and line, and highly figured veneers, inlays and subtle carving. Lighter and more elegant than Colonial furniture, Federal pieces are prized for their historical significance and their utility in the contemporary home.
In addition to its selection of American Federal furniture, Thomas Schwenke, Inc. offers design services, appraisals, restorations, custom furniture, and an exclusive proprietary line of exact replica Federal furniture under the trademark "American Federal Classics."
