Customer's Photos










"Chris Harter's elegant Windsor settee has been an integral part of the Fenimore Art Museum's main foyer for more than a decade.  It displays a level of craftsmanship and style that perfectly compliments our collections of 18th and 19th century fine art and folk art. Best of all, the settee provides a spacious and comfortable place for our visitors to rest after viewing our exhibits, or while waiting for a tour or program. Its combination of beauty and comfort is what every museum looks for in addressing public needs."  Paul S. D'Ambrosio, Chief Curator                 Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, NY



 "Integrity of execution, materials and design coupled with balance and interpretation are but a few of the hallmarks that set Chris Harter's work above most.    The Windsor chairs we have acquired have instantly become the focal point around which all else in the room revolves.  We regret not having invested in more of his pieces early on. "   J.M.  Plymouth,  Michigan



“We appreciate every detail you have so carefully crafted, Chris, especially the 'contrast' between bold and delicate, fat and slender, sharp and rounded, straight and curved. Look at those delicate wrists! ...the surge and taper of the spindles!...the nobility of the whole! Each piece has a 'personality' of excellence,...integrity,...compassion!" S. & G. McLaughlin  'Embracing Windsors'
