Welcome Theodore Alexander
Tapping the inspiration of the Keno brothers, Theodore Alexander has created a masterpiece in mid-century modern décor. Twin brothers Leigh and Leslie Keno, television’s most recognized furniture appraisers and authorities on antiques, have designed a unique collection of classically modern furniture.
The Kenos’ focus on quality, adaptability and approachability beautifully complement the realities of contemporary living with a level of craftsmanship rarely seen today.
Inspired by a love of antiques and a passion for sculpture and rare objects, their designs distill the best ideas of earlier periods and recast them for the way we live now. Incorporating premium woods, sinuous curves, beautiful finishes and built-in functionality, their goal is to create the heirlooms of tomorrow.
Did you know…Kindel Furniture is one of the last of the great American furniture manufactures to produce its complete line in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Grand Rapids was one of the largest producers of furniture in world up until the mid 90s. Only Kindel remains as a true American story. As part of the deAurora commitment to invest in local resources we are proud to announce Kindel Furniture as part of the deAurora family.
Drawing from its history of superb craftsmanship Kindel created the HB Home Collection. The HB Home Collection was designed in collaboration with the high end, interior design firm, HB Home, based in Westport, Connecticut. The Collection centers on the design aesthetic of the two founders of HB Home, Pat Healing and Dan Barsanti. The woods used are primarily White Oak, and the new cerused finishes beautifully accentuate the grain and character of the wood.
The HB Home Collection is based on the use of classic forms that are “tried and true with a twist,” notes Patricia Healing. The designs offer fresh changes to solid forms with lighter woods, changing scale and modifications of how and where pieces are used in the home..
