Duncan Phyfe Still Lives
We are always interested in the history of furniture.
In our dining room is a Duncan Phyfe dining table. Actually according to Duncan Phyfe - The Man, The Style on the English classics blog, Duncan Phyfe never labeled his furniture, so we probably have a copy of a Duncan Phyfe or a dining table made in the style of the man's designs.
It's an interesting read. At just 26 years old—Duncan Phyfe started his furniture making business in New York City and quickly became one of the most renowned American cabinetmakers of all time.
