Furniture Hall will be a delight for the senses this weekend, starting with the smell of fresh, locally roasted coffee from Roast Rider of Virginia Beach. Come have a cup and relax on Whittemore Sherrill’s newest designs in exquisite leathers by Moore and Giles of Lynchburg, VA. Then take in a woodworking demonstration by the good folks from Conrad Grebel.
Mennonite wood artist Larion Swartzendruber and Conrad Grebel CEO Chad Gascho are driving 13 hours from Goshen, Indiana to Virginia Beach this weekend, and they’re pretty darned excited about it. Not just because these winter-hardy guys get to go to the VB oceanfront, but because they love showing how Amish and Mennonite families build solid wood furniture for Conrad Grebel. Chat with Larion as he builds chairs by hand in the new Conrad Grebel exhibit in Furniture Hall. Whether you’re a woodworking enthusiast or a fan of fine quality furniture, you’ll love this casual, in-person demo. Saturday 10 am to 2 pm.
Our owner, EJ, has been carrying his Moore & Giles briefcase for decades, and it only looks better every year. Whittemore Sherrill is now showing at Furniture Hall, with a collection of impossibly comfortable 8-way hand-tied sofas and chairs tailored in Moore & Giles leathers. Several of us tried them out the day they arrived. Needless to say, we didn’t want to go back to work right away. Come see the luxurious feel that Virginia’s renowned tannery brings to America’s most coveted name in leather furniture.
