Hand sewn material for a wing back chair

Myriad Options
Many Kittinger pieces are also available in pale–toned, washed finishes. The wood is sanded, shaded, lacquered and lightly distressed. Customers may also choose from decorative faux finishes. As an extra service, The Kittinger Furniture Company has the ability to custom–match a finish to customers’ specifications. Craftsmen can colorand shade a new Kittinger piece to match a family heirloom, an antique, or a previously made piece of Kittinger furniture.

Leather and fabric
Though Kittinger is known for its fine wood finishes, its upholstering is no less exceptional. Many pieces require reproduction of upholstering materials and techniques that were used more than 200 years ago. Materials must frequently be hand sewn. Hundreds of tacks must be individually placed by hand. The frames of Kittinger’s upholstered furniture are constructed of solid maple, ideal because

of its durability and good retention of
upholstery tacks. Fabric or leather upholstery is cut to match the shape of the furniture frame. Exposed wood surfaces are typically made of mahogany to complement the

fabric or leather. The secret of comfortable seating Once the frame of a chair or sofa has been assembled, coiled springs are embedded in the seat for support. Springs are interlocked and hand–tied in eight ways to add strength and ensure comfort.

The springs are then covered with as many as six layers of cushioning. A selection of cushions – including a variety of down and feather combinations – are available for most seats, pillows and trimmings.

The finishing touch
Hand–applied brass–nail trim, diamond tufting, optional antiquing and other
details may be selected to customize a chair or sofa.

From blue–prints, to final inspection, skilled attention to the smallest of details is what makes each piece of furniture a masterpiece. The Kittinger Furniture Company’s fine craftsmanshiphas endured for more than a century, and is poised to continue for many generations to come.
