Los Angeles, CA, January 12, 2011 --( GLP Designs – a design firm and manufacturer of fine custom furniture – has acquired Quakenbush & Winkler and Antique Designs to offer three stunning new furniture collections. Refined, elegant and timeless, their latest slate of furniture brings the best of old world style into the present. GLP has rolled out extensive new product lines comprised of French and English country classics, antique traditional and transitional reproduction furniture.

“Quackenbush & Winkler and Antique Designs have a combined 75 year legacy of fine antique furniture reproduction. We’ve taken their timeless styles and reinterpreted them for today’s home,” said GLP Designs’ President Gayle Hudson. “Every piece is inspiring, taking us back to a beloved time in history.”

Selling only to the trade, each piece of GLP furniture is custom made-to-order, handmade, bench-built, assembled and hand-finished when ordered. GLP Designs offers 68 wood and painted finishes and the upholstery of choice. All products are made in the USA.

“As an interior designer it was natural for me to bring a designer-oriented approach to GLP,” said Gayle Hudson. “Our team is comprised of fellow interior designers and skilled artisans in carpentry and finishing, enabling us to conceive or recreate a piece of furniture required by our clients. “

GLP Designs’ product collections include:

Quackenbush & Winkler: English and French country antique reproduction furniture.

Antique Designs: Traditional furniture with a refined look and finish.

A.D. Nouveau: Transitional furniture inspired by antique designs, but with a contemporary edge.
