Crate designs has some of the best wood furniture I have ever seen. My husband and I recently re-furnished our cottage living room with furniture from Crate, and we couldn't be happier. It has that 'cottagy' look, while still being very classy - and the quality is excellent (doesn't scratch or pick up water marks easily). The price was excellent for what we got, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I will be going back to Crate for my next re-decorating project.
