Maine WoodWorks, a division of Creative Work Systems, opened its doors in 1988 as a manufacturer of unfinished pine furniture. The company began wholesaling its furniture to retailers across New England and grew its product offering to include a traditional line and shaker line of unfinished furniture in both pine and oak.
Seeing an opportunity to expand into the finished goods market, Maine WoodWorks began to experiment with painting furniture in the summer of 2000. Convinced that there was indeed an opportunity to provide the retail community with quality painted solid wood furniture, all efforts were focused on developing a line of painted bedroom furniture featuring bead board sides in a choice of several colors.
The new painted bead board line launched in 2001 and was instantly embraced by furniture retailers across New England. Today, Maine WoodWorks offers a wide selection of painted and hand-rubbed, stained furniture in an unlimited choice of colors for the bedroom and beyond.
