SDS Events

Gretchen Gabrielli, Owner & Creative Director of Old Biscayne discusses the ethos and craftmanship of the company at SDS on April 8, 2015.

Craftsmanship & Artistry

Every process and every detail, from a carved chair leg to a table finish or inlay, is executed by hand. Our craftsmen employ time-honoured techniques to craft truly beautiful furniture you'll fall madly in love with. All surfaces of our furniture are prepared, sanded and finished, even those areas that are not always visible.
