Recognized the world over for our timeless designs and handcrafted quality, The Ernest Thompson Company is proud of our team of designers and artisans who transform our clients’ concepts into breathtaking reality.
It takes a passionate heart, loving hands and incomparable talent to produce our heirloom-quality furniture and cabinets.
There are no shortcuts to perfection, and perfection is what gives them great pride in creating a one-of-a-kind Ernest Thompson cabinet, closet or piece of furniture for you.
Within our workshop, a great many of our craftspeople have a rich family history of handcrafted furniture making that began hundreds of years ago. At times, we have employed fathers, sons, brothers, nephews, and cousins who work hand in hand, building the tradition passed on by grandfathers and great grandfathers, a bond that is reflected in the quality of everything we design and build.
While it is easy to admire Ernest Thompson products for their beauty and quality, it’s more difficult to appreciate the finesse that transforms raw materials into the finest furniture, cabinets and closets in the world. We owe our distinctive products to time-honored techniques that include the mortise and tenon joinery used in all Ernest Thompson construction, the French dovetails used in our drawer making, hand-carved details and hand-rubbed finishes.
While you may not realize it, you will be taking a fascinating journey through the production of your order, albeit vicariously. Your name will be attached to the wood, other materials, patterns and everything that is needed for production, and stays with these materials as they travel through each stage of production and, if applicable, installation.
Like fine wine, your Ernest Thompson furniture and cabinetry ages well, actually becoming more beautiful with each passing year.
