Looking Back at 60 Years of SYW

Monday, December 23rd, 2013
This year, we here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop celebrated our 60th anniversary as a company. Customers and loyal fans were delighted to discover a variety of exclusive designs in honor of the celebration, in addition to celebratory contests and special looks at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop’s past through historical articles and videos. As 2013 comes to an end and our 60th Anniversary makes way for our 61st year, we would like to take one final look at how far we have come since our founding in 1953.

Stafford Chair Quality Upholstery For Your Home

We have been a long standing destination for furniture and home furnishings since we opened our doors in 1953. The pages of our catalogs are graced with early American style, Colonial reproductions and authentic classics. Today we continue to feature many of the same styles as they did 60 years ago, offering the same quality and attention to detail. For example, our customer favorites, the Stafford and Kingfield Chairs are crafted in America; a welcome addition to the wide range of made in the USA products that we have to offer. In 1963 we offered what was called “Our Special Chair”, available in five prints, most notably the color Breen, “brown with overtones of green.”

Early American Chairs & Their Modern Cousins

Long standing customer favorite items such as the range of Windsor and ladderback style chairs, rockers and stools have been carried for 60 years. In the 1963 Sturbridge Yankee Workshop catalog, ladderback chairs were offered in seven finishes; today they are available in a country complementary range of four.

Ladderback chairs, according to our 1963 catalog, are said to have arrived in America on the Mayflower, making them historical treasures for any home then and now.
