  Based in Mebane, North Carolina, CRAFTIQUE, L. L. C. is a manufacturer of mahogany bedroom, dining room and accent furniture. Focused on a specific market of high quality, traditional English and American styles, CRAFTIQUE furniture is sold through retail furniture stores and interior designers throughout the United States. Founded in 1946 by Mr. L. P. Best, CRAFTIQUE flourished and became recognized throughout the furniture industry as a leader in producing high quality, mahogany residential furniture. From day one, Mr. Best instilled an unprecedented pride in offering and producing the highest possible quality available in mahogany furniture. This pride is still evident today. After 43 years at the helm, Mr. Best sold the company he founded and nurtured to Pulaski Furniture, based in Pulaski, Virginia. A publicly traded company, Pulaski is a manufacturer of mid-priced bedroom, dining room, and accent furniture. Operating independently from Pulaski, the CRAFTIQUE product line was expanded to include more carving detail, a starting price point collection and their first licensing program with the Thomas Day Restoration Foundation. In the Fall of 1997, Pulaski made the corporate decision to focus exclusively on their core products of mid-priced merchandise and sold CRAFTIQUE to two industry veterans: John Erwin and Craig Shoemaker. Returning CRAFTIQUE back to private ownership, Erwin and Shoemaker (along with their wives Mary and Jane) are re-capturing the pride, craftsmanship and family-oriented environment so prevalent under L. P. Best. Continuing to promote the high quality mahogany position, the CRAFTIQUE of today also focuses on providing exceptionally short lead-times from production to the end consumer. Getting a quality product to the end consumer as quickly as possible is of paramount importance in today's lifestyle. Craftique Craftsmanship CRAFTIQUE has earned a reputation over the last 50 years of producing the highest quality furniture available. Quality you will see and feel every time you open a drawer or close a cabinet. CRAFTIQUE is mahogany furniture you can trust, made by people you can trust. A few examples of what makes CRAFTIQUE the highest heirloom-quality furniture: Only the highest grade of the world's finest cabinet wood, mahogany, are selected for CRAFTIQUE furniture. Component parts are solid mahogany, including drawer sides and backs, interior posts, and glue blocks. Extremely tight drawer tolerances 1/16", the true mark of fine cabinetry, far exceeds the industry standard. All lumber is closely examined for similar grain characteristics and color patterns. The inside surfaces of CRAFTIQUE case goods are hand-rubbed to a lustrous finish by individual craftsmen. In the spirit of the great cabinetmakers of the past, we understand that not only one's work but one's name is handed down for generations. At CRAFTIQUE, it is a name we hand down proudly.
