I love my chair and ottoman! Mary was a delight to work with from initial suggestions through fabric samples to coordinating with other elements in the room.  The chair is a beautiful focal point and additionally very comfortable, practical and durable. I was pleased with the delivery people who were prompt and careful.  The entire process was timely and most of all painless.  Thank you Mary!”

“I really enjoyed working with Mary over the phone to design my chair.  She sent many of her fabric samples and provided helpful advice throughout the process.  The designs are beautiful and the material is of high quality.  The chair is extremely comfortable too!  Thank you!

“I saw Mary Lynn’s furniture for several years at craft shows and always knew it was THE furniture I would buy when I was ready to replace what I had.  I rode the train from Philadelphia to D. C. to see her at a show and place my order.  She worked with me and asked lots of questions so I would end up with good results.  She gave me fabric swatches to take home and see what I thought fit best with other decor.  Her suggestions for piping and combinations of fabrics were excellent.  She’s pleasant, reputable, timely and has good taste.  One could ask for nothing more! “

“Mary O’Shea’s pairing of her unique fabrics with comfortable and quality furniture is just what our home office and library yearned for. Her pieces add warmth to the room and draw us to those stuffed chairs and ottomans regularly for lazy Sunday mornings with the Times. Mary delivered what she promised and it was a pleasure to work with her and her upholstery team. We look forward to her next round of creativity.”

“We were thrilled with the first chair we had Mary design for us.  We had never
seen any fabric like it.  It’s not only a beautiful chair but it’s comfortable too!   We loved our first chair so much we came back and had her do 2 more side chairs for us in a complementary fabric.  We always get compliments about them when guests come to visit.  Everything about the experience was great from deciding on the design to the delivery to what I’m sure will be years and years of enjoyment of our chairs!”

“What a great day when we discovered Mary O’Shea on the internet! We were in need of a "unique chair" and here it was. Traveling to Vermont to her studio we saw her art pieces firsthand. She patiently created our "unique chair" before our eyes. We also admired her jacket collection. I became the proud owner of a Mary O’Shea jacket. Fast forward five years. We wanted to reupholster an existing chair and realized again that we were looking for that "unique" item. Mary has designed another beautiful creation. Her attention to detail in her designs is phenomenal. The fabrics color combinations and patterns are like an artist’s canvas. Whether a jacket or a piece of furniture – if you own a Mary O’Shea – you have "unique" art!”

“A week after taking the position as Furniture Gallery Director at Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, NC I went to the ACC Show in Baltimore and met Mary Lynn O’Shea. It was love at first sight for her furniture pieces and instant attraction to her warm personality. Our customers have purchased the pieces we have in the gallery and some have had Mary Lynn make custom pieces for them. Whether she is dealing with our gallery staff or one of our customers Mary Lynn has always been professional and delivered what she promises on time and correctly. Her fabric designs are spot on. Combine those great designs with wonderfully made furniture and you have pieces that are so inviting that people always ask if they can please sit down on them. A good book and a glass of wine are all that is missing!”
