It’s like Christmas here this week. Our first order of table linens and pillows from Bonnie and Neal arrived and it’s been way too much fun to price, tag and display them.

Did you request yours yet?

We've been working on a new catalog update for several months now, adding new prodcuts, new pages, updating text and images. It's not our favorite thing to do, we'll admit, so we are very glad it's done. We do love to see it finished though, hot off the press. Even though we've been looking at the images, text and pages for weeks (okay, months) it all seems new when the printer delivers them to us.

Save room for dessert, because you will want to spend as much time as you can at our new Gates Trestle Table.

I know we just introduced our new Gates Desk, but we can't help ourselves. The new designs just keep coming out of the workshop and they're so lovely we need to share them with you as quickly as we can.

We designed this table for a client in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, and we immediately fell head-over-heels with the design. Based on the design of the...

Shortly after we completed and delivered the original Gates Table to Erin Gates, we began discussions of a new design to complement the table. Erin envisioned a desk that would harken back to the campaign desks of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with an updated aesthetic and more practical design for today’s use, and utilizing some of the design features of her dining table.

Bill and Erin went back and forth with sketches and ideas a few times before they landed on this: the new Gates Desk.

One morning this week we met Chris Smith of CA Smith Photography at a lovely home in Kennebunkport to photograph some of our newer pieces: the Arris Sofa and Ottoman and a new table which I believe we will be calling the Gates Trestle Table.

The Wilson Dining Table has always been one of our favorites here at Huston & Company. The simplicity of the lightly curved edges of the table and the lean, graceful legs combine for an elegant yet everyday table. It's practical and timeless.

Are you looking for such a dining table? Practical, elegant and timeless? You're in luck. One of our friends here in the Kennebunks is selling his custom Wilson Dining Table and six...

On May 16th, Jason Jackson and I went to a “color development” seminar held at Atlantic Plywood in Westbrook, Maine. Jason is our very talented finisher, and he’s already got the color development thing down. But in recent months we’ve had many requests for custom finishes; finishes different from those we’ve done in the past.

As I work directly with our customers, it falls to me to understand what the customer is asking for, and to then clearly pass that information...

Clients may choose any library: public, private, school, historical, law - you name it.

Clever, eh?

If you follow us, you also know that we do a lot of work for Princeton University and we're in the middle of building a...

12/8/14 - This table has found a new home.

In 1999, we built this beautiful York Dining Table for a client here in Kennebunkport. She recently decided she no longer needs such a large table and would like to sell it, to give it a good home. She asked if we might be able to spread the word.

This is a standard York Dining Table, made of oak with Wenge inlay.
It measures 30”H x 84”L x 43.5”W and seats 8 very comfortably. It is in good...
