AT THE DRAWING TABLE
Historical research is fundamental to the design of most Kittinger pieces. To assemble ideas for new pieces, designers and draftsmen review volumes offurniture–design records, some dating back to before the turn of the 20th century. They create numerous sketches. Only after careful examination and adjustment are the sketches drafted into autocad drawings. From the computer generated drawings, detail drawings are created, which are used to make jigs and fixture – templates for cutting parts in the Kittinger mill.


The result is not merely a pile of parts, but a set of components that blend the classic features of antiques with Kittinger’s own elegant innovations. For example, the Boston Bombé Secretary is inspired by an 18th century colonial design, yet displays a level of sophistication rarely found in New England cabinetwork of that period. Its fullness of the bombé form, intricate carved detailing, custom–made solid brass hardware and quality hand–

craftsmanship make it truly a
Kittinger creation.
