For over forty years D.R.DIMES & Company has been crafting museum quality reproduction American furniture. Founded by Douglas Richard Dimes in 1964, the company grew from a one man shop to an American institution. Along the way he was commissioned by nearly every major Early American museum in the country.
Mr. Dimes’ great grandfather Richard Dimes — an English silversmith who had immigrated to the U.S. in 1881 — started Towle’s hollowware line. Dimes eventually founded his own company, Richard Dimes Co., in South Boston going on to establish himself as a one of the finest silversmiths in the US. Richard Dimes Co. also worked for major museums to recreate early American masterpieces by the likes of Paul Revere.
The company’s president and fifth generation mastercraftsman, Douglas P. Dimes, is very cognizant of his family’s history and is committed to the ideals of his father and forebears.
D.R. Dimes & Company makes only the finest examples of Early American design because Mr. Dimes believes those pieces were and are among the finest Windsor chairs & furniture ever made. With nearly forty years of effort and scholarship D.R. Dimes offers an amazing variety of Early American forms which are often copied as much as the originals.
