Fine Craftsmanship

For over 70 years, Cresent has focused exclusively on crafting high-quality Solid Wood furniture.  Over those years, we have learned that in addition to selecting and carefully drying the best solid timbers, a key factor in our success is to stick with many of the time-tested methods of cabinetmaking.  Mortise and tenon joinery, full-floating construction, traditionally built double-doweled dining chairs--all of these classic methods are still used by us today.  Sometimes, the old ways are the best.

However, this does not mean that we are not looking forward.  We have families just like you, and we live daily with our furniture, so we are equally focused on making sure that our furniture is ready for the demands of the modern lifestyle, both in design and function.

To that end, you will find that Cresent incorporates many features that reflect the needs of today's lifestyles--media-friendly dressers, for instance, and nightstands with power strips for charging all those devices we rely on.  In the dining room, features such as built-in wine storage and self-storing leaves in selected pieces.  And perhaps most revolutionary, in 2007 Cresent was the first Solid-Wood manufacturer to fit Whisper Close drawer slides on our cases as a replacement for the tried and true "wood on wood" guide.  We are proud to be industry leaders on this front, and hope that you will take some time and explore the reasons that we think Cresent offers the best Value in the furniture industry.
