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 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.

Gorgeous furniture, well made and with fine attention to detail. We ordered a bookcase and a chest in tiger maple. They are clearly heirloom pieces. We look forward to adding more pieces in the years to come.

We contacted D.R. Dimes about commissioning a drop leaf table in tiger maple for our dining room. The table has arrived and it is beautiful! The craftsmanship is evident, even the legs are tiger maple. Our only issue was with the amount of time it took to get the piece. We ordered it in March 2018 and did not receive it until July 2018, however we are happy it is here and looks beautiful. We wanted the table to marry up with our dining room table for big events yet be out of the way the rest of the time. The dimensions were as specified and I like the solid heavy feel of the piece. Great job!

We had purchased a couple of Dimes pieces in the past including a coffee table and we were now looking for a sofa table. Nothing we had seen appealed so we called DR Dimes and asked if they could make one to our specifications in the same style as the coffee table. Doug Dimes produced drawings in very short order and a few weeks later we had a wonderful table. There was a minor hiccup scheduling delivery but everything else was perfect.

The chairs are just lovely!!! The service was exceptional! My only concern was that the seats seemed to get messy (dent and scratch) too quickly from normal wear like jean pocket studs - and I did order the maple seat.

We purchased our first DR Dimes chairs for our home when we were married in 1983 and have used them every day since. They have a few dents and cat scratches, but are as comfortable as ever. Our new bar chairs are are a nice addition to our new kitchen. The purchase and delivery were flawless. Thanks for a great product!
