Welcome to Leighton Hall Furniture, America’s Fine Furniture Craftsmen. We design, manufacture, wholesale, and retail traditional fine furniture, specializing in dining room and executive office pieces. We are entering our third decade in the antique and fine furniture business. During that time we have built a tradition of providing the highest quality furniture to our customers. We are a small, family-owned business. Our furniture can be found in major government executive offices, celebrities’ homes, and some of the nation’s major business and law firms. We have authorized dealers in the U.S., Canada and South America.
What We Do
We make some of America’s finest furniture by paying attention to the smallest details. Unlike the large furniture companies, we are a small, centralized operation. We do not mass produce furniture, but make our product in small quantities which allows us to pay greater attention to our product. Our tables and casegoods are made of the highest quality swirly-crotch mahogany, tulipwood, primavera, Santos rosewood, satinwood, walnut, cherry and yew wood veneers and selected solids. The President of our company personally chooses many of the veneers and is actively involved in the design and quality control process.

Each one of our tables receives individual attention and is assigned a unique serial number. Our furniture has the official “Leighton Hall Furniture” emblem placed on each piece.
Inspiration for Our Designs
Our President and primary designer is inspired by antiques and fine furniture in some of the finest homes and galleries in Charleston, Savannah, New Orleans, Newport and various English estates.

How We Make It
We combine age-old furniture making techniques with the best of today’s technology to make our furniture. For example, we use dovetailing and finger jointing to make most of our drawers. This has been a sign of quality furniture for hundreds of years. At the same time, we use computer guided lasers and routers to cut our veneers and solids to tolerances of within thousandths of an inch to ensure a good fit. Features of our Tables:
- Highly selected veneers and solids from around the world to produce maximum eye-appeal
- Laser-cut veneers for excellent fit
- 21 step finishing process
Features of our Casegoods:
- Dovetailed and finger-jointed oak-lined drawers
- Solid brass hardware
- Individually paned glass doors (the English cabinet making way)
- Thick 3/8″ glass shelves
- Dimmable lighting
Features of our Chairs:
- Kiln dried solid wood
- Deep crisp carvings and reliefs
- 18th Century Styles
