There are some skills for which English Craftsmen have been renowned for centuries. Producing exquisite furniture is one of them. Established in 1984, Elijah Slocum remains faithful to a desire to provide the highest quality in furniture and decorative antiques and art.
Each Elijah Slocum piece is crafted by our master craftsmen entirely by hand, continuing traditions established by English cabinet shops that preceded the industrial revolution. In every step, from hand planed timber, through construction of hand made joints, the painstaking hand polished and waxed finishes, and finally to the finishing touches of the hand made brassware, we create a special, timeless piece of furniture.
Our quality and attention to detail is non-negotiable and faithfully follow in the footsteps of our forefathers. The result is something very rare in today’s market place, a work of art made today, to the exacting standards of past masters. Equally rare is our ability and willingness to create one-off items for clients with requirements that cannot be fulfilled with “off-the-shelf” pieces. Whether working from a photograph, your drawings, or having our staff develop a design that meets your requirements, we are uniquely qualified to undertake original work.
The English countryside is where we craft tomorrow’s antiques while sourcing our fine art and decorative antiques. Our search is for the quality and unusual items that make a house a home. After all, our handcrafted furniture deserves the best of accompaniment.
Thank you for considering Elijah Slocum for your next project.
