Does furniture make the room, or do people and time? At Hitchcock, we would say all of the above. In fact, each of our collections spins a story that began with a man named Lambert Hitchcock. It was during the 1820's, a time when sawmills buzzed in Connecticut river towns. A woodworker by trade, Hitchcock set out to build furniture of great character and beauty much like the clockwork of his time. His business eye settled on maple, oak and cherry, wood plentiful enough in the rugged countryside to be affordable.
On the way to his goal, he built a flourishing Connecticut company in a town now known as Riverton. And like most families, the Hitchcock chronicle is characterized as much by "fire and flood" as homespun memories. And like most people, we've come through with our treasure preserved. As you click through our website, you'll see furnishings that may remind you of a great-grandparent, a holiday feast or a family gathering on a rainy afternoon. We sincerely hope you'll also see something of yourself.
Welcome to Hitchcock.
