What is going on with D. R. Dimes!
The rumors are true. I was forced to close D.R. Dimes last fall. It broke my heart and nearly crushed my soul. I have never done anything else. I started sweeping the shop at 10 years old. It is important to note that I paid everyone. We have always run an honest company. After feeling sorry for myself for several months I started to think I could maybe continue in some form. It has taken months but I am now producing the famous D.R.DIMES Windsor chairs by myself. Unfortunately I cannot make the furniture. I do not have the space or equipment to do that. I can, however have D.R.DIMES pieces made for if you want them.
I am offering the whole line of D.R. DIMES Windsor chairs with most of our previous finishes. Some of the more obscure chairs may take a little longer but I can make them all. My father once hung a quote by Calvin Coolidge above my desk when I would give up on a project.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men of talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
- Calvin Coolidge
I would be honored to make you some chairs with my own hands that will be in your family for generations. Click here to contact me.

The Finest Handmade Furniture Made In America
From reproduction American windsor chairs to three collections of colonial furniture, D.R. DIMES offers the widest selection of early American reproduction furniture available. Whether tiger maple, oak or cherry furniture – all our reproduction furniture is made in our New Hampshire workshop.
D.R. DIMES Provided Desks for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute
In March 2014, D.R.DIMES was selected by the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the Study of the U.S. Senate to reproduce most of the furniture in the U.S. Senate. We delivered the entire collection in September 2014.
