|End of an era...
I just saw the best idea that I have seen in a long time. A national association of crib manufacturers
has suggestedthat all drop sides on cribs be
discontinued and, banned.
That is music to our ears.
We will immediately discontinue making our cribs with drop sides.
We will increase the number of adjustment points on the mattress, to give a greater degree of height adjustment.
The top and bottom mattress position will still adhere to federal regulations.
We have disliked drop sides from the start.
They are cumbersome, dangerous, and the hardware has gotten more and more flimsy.
Our pictures will begin to accurately reflect the actual look of the cribs when we make a run of the new style.
For now, we may just construct digital pictures of cribs without drop sides to use on the site.
We will alter the text as we are able.
No more drop sides on our cribs .... March 19, 2009
Our Arts & Crafts / Mission Youth Furniture will be there for your child, their children, and beyond.
We make the finest child and youth furniture available. Every piece is made with the same care and attention to detail that is found in our reproductions and original design Arts & Crafts furniture.
The grain is carefully matched, the handmade construction is traditional mortise & tenon, and the finish is unsurpassed.
We do not keep pieces in stock.
Every piece is carefully handcrafted to the customers order.
It may be a reproduction, a selection from our previous work, or an original design.
Custom colors, or construction features are, therefore, easily accommodated for only a small additional charge.
|Our Cribs, and Youth Furniture are all handmade, one piece at a time.
They will be treasured by succeeding generations, as their use continues.
We do not approach the Arts & Crafts style as a popular, transient fad.
It represents a soundness of design and functionality that transcend brief periods of favor.
If your lifestyle invites continuity and respects heritage, you will know immediately,
when you see
a piece of our furniture, that fond memories of its use will continue and endure for generations to come.
