Authentic, unparalleled craftsmanship combined with American ingenuity
Jim Dates and Allan Weiser made their first prototypes in a garage in Buffalo in 1982 with a shared ambition to create the finest custom furniture. Today, DatesWeiser continues to build beautifully designed, timeless products. Every piece is impeccably crafted, incorporating technology in discreet, clever ways that never distract from the elegance or power of the design. Collaboration and innovation are our core values— understanding how to interpret client needs is what makes DatesWeiser a trusted partner in the design process and ensures confidence in durable, lasting products that look as good decades later as the day they were installed.
