"Quality means doing it right when no one is looking." — Henry Ford
The old four-digit telephone number on the label suggested to me that this particular suite was a number of decades old, yet apart from a slightly jaded finish and some slight discolouration to the leather through lack of maintenance over the years, the suite still bespeaks quality and shows signs of lasting a lifetime. The sofas go on sale tomorrow at one of Wairarapa's leading antique dealers, and I am certain they will not stay on the shop floor for long.
If I were in the market to buy New Zealand-made leather furniture of the highest quality, I would certainly put ClydeStyle Furniture on top of my shortlist. They have been "doing it right" for over 40 years.
