Our Story

Oak and Velvet is a furniture company that prides itself on creating high end, quality, and custom-made products for our clients.

At O&V we value your needs and expectations from a high-end piece of furniture. We will take notes of your dimensions and your space dimensions to create a product specifically for you. Choose colors and prints that works for your lifestyle and tastes from our collections of fabrics. Then we handle the rest. You can trust in our team's combined 20 years experience to provide the service and quality you expect. O&V furniture is 100% made in the United States; our materials are locally sourced in New England. 


We are not just a furniture store. We are a family valued company striving in craftsmanship and complete customer satisfaction. 

We want to create heirlooms that will stay in your family for years...

& we hope you'll feel the same.
