Update Jan 2013:  Now that its in, on the floor, I must say, its even better in person!

Here at Carolina Rustica, one of our favorite market activities is to discover new suppliers like Cambridge Mills. Cambridge Mills is a newer company and was officially founded in the summer of 2010, but the company’s furniture roots reach back more than 150 years through its association with its parent company.  Their mission is to create and distribute exquisitely designed bedroom and media products that are 100% American made, 100% solid wood, and offered at prices that today’s average consumer can actually afford. The founders of Cambridge Mills Furniture believe that American made, high quality, solid wood furniture still has a place in today’s market.
This “new” company has over 500,000 square feet of state of the art manufacturing capacity in upstate New York and they harvest solid Adirondack Cherry used in their products from their own 10,000 acre forest. They are one of the "greenest" companies we have represented here at Carolina Rustica.    Some of their best-selling bedroom collections follow.

North Cove

The transitional style is stronger than ever these days, and it draws inspiration from the styling of Arts & Crafts and Art Deco movements.  This stunning collection of solid Adirondack Cherry and Walnut bedroom furniture features elements from a variety of design categories resulting in a truly unique look that will find a place in a wide variety of transitional to traditional styles.  The traditionalist will appreciate the Arts & Crafts inspired full length posts, inside tapered feet, curved bottom rails and soft concave under-top moldings.  These elements combine to add softness and grace to the contemporary straight lines of the collection.   We feature the Sienna finish on our group here at the gallery, but both finishes highlight the natural beauty of solid cherry and are designed using either bronze or solid walnut pulls.  The walnut accents are carried over to the beds and mirrors as post caps and spindles offering a lovely contrast to the warm cherry finish.  The attention to detail make this bedroom truly one of a kind and stand as the signature of highly refined, handcrafted furniture

Cherry Creek
We bought this collection in the Sienna finish, a lighter option highlighting the deep warmth in the cherry grain.  It really makes this stunning 12 piece bedroom collection come to life..crafted in only the finest solid Adirondack Cherry and harvested from the timberlands of Central New York.  The utter beauty of the timber is enhanced by subtle movements in the design of the bed.  The vertical bevels on the sides and center of the drawer faces and the curved pilasters add a grace and easy flow to each piece.  Two options are available for the bed itself. The Panel bed mirrors the movement and refinement of the cases with its raised panels, floating cap rail, and rounded posts.  The shelter back upholstered bed is a true masterpiece with expert tailoring in the tufted back and curved corner posts that provide a cozy, warm feel.  A gorgeous bench footboard is an option on both beds and adds both supreme functionality and style.  We purchased our floor model with the footboard storage bench, and we are sure it is going to be a popular choice.  Unique saddle brown leather wrapped pulls  are standard with both finishes.

Chambers Street
This group is a personal favorite because of its fusion of clean lines, traditional utility, and a gorgeous finish.  Design elements including clever, under the bed, footboard storage drawers to maximize available space and choices of fabric or leather panels for the upholstered bed offer both style and function for today’s discriminating consumer.  Each piece is handcrafted using solid Adirondack Cherry and carefully finished to highlight the natural beauty and characteristics of the wood.   We bought our pieces in the Caramel finish, which features a rich, light brown tone that reveals the natural grain character of cherry.  The Mocha finish is a deep brown and very rich finish with depth and clarity.   This group features antique bronze-finish pulls for both finishes.
