    Description

    S. Bent & Brothers, Inc. is a small furniture company located in Gardner, Massachusetts, specializing in the manufacture of Early American wooden seat chairs. Because of our size and our specialization, we do not necessarily represent the industry in our ideas about and use of yellow birch as a primary raw material. Our company during the past 100 years has made furniture from mahogany, chestnut, oak, white pine, hard pine, rock maple, and yellow birch. Various reasons such as availability, price, workability, and consumer demand have dictated which species we have used at different points in our history.
