Four Hands, the industry leader in lifestyle home furnishings, is now the exclusive North American distributor of acclaimed furniture manufacturer Van Thiel & Co. The new partnership will debut at the upcoming High Point Market, April 20-25, 2013. Four Hands is located in Showplace, #4101.
In operation for over 45 years, Van Thiel & Co. is one of the world’s largest sources of high end antique replicas. Through both constant travel and unfaltering curiosity about the world’s makers and artisans, founder Rudy Van Thiel and his son, Rudy Jr., have cultivated an distinguished network of resources for discovering some of the most beautiful and rare pieces of craftsmanship available in the current market. Over the years the company has expanded into the production of artisanal style solid wooden case goods with a niche approach by offering refined, hand applied finishes reflecting true antique patinas.
The debut of this partnership will feature over 200 products including: bench made replicas, hand-forged iron, dining and occasional tables, accents pieces and introducing for the first time, handcrafted upholstery with fine European fabrics.
“I’ve admired the Van Thiel line for years, “stated Matthew Briggs, CEO and president of Four Hands. “Their unique aesthetic and incredible attention to detail separate them from everyone else in the market. I am proud to add them to the Four Hands family.”
