Upon discovering both a demand and a shortage for antiques, Niermann Weeks Furniture decided try their hand at creating them. Yes, how perfectly ingenious—(Why didn't we think of that?)
After restoring a 19th-Century chandelier sourced from a New Orleans convent, Joe Niermann made thirty copies of the fixture and promptly sold them out—and so began Niermann Weeks. Originally founded in Memphis, and now located in Annapolis, the company, like Ralph Lauren, borrows from antiquarian design to craft delightfully contemporary hybrids. Aged finishes are a hallmark of Nierman Weeks pieces, as are carefully honed details that play tribute to co-founder Eleanor McKay’s time as a Memphis Museum of art curator.
