A friend introduced me to China Collection years ago. I love the fantastic customer service that you receive from them. They are always accommodating, and they source unique and original pieces. Their passion for sharing knowledge and assisting customers always comes through, too.

To The Last Detail

When you buy an old house, you will have to remodel the kitchen. Old houses never have enough storage space. Bachelors don’t cook. Wrong, wrong, and wrong—at least at Sconehenge, David Berman’s 1910 Shingle Style house in Plymouth, Mass. When he bought the place, it needed a level of cleanup and restoration that meant a dumpster was parked outside for months. Yet he didn’t touch the kitchen’s old-fashioned floor plan.
