The Jane Street Hotel

The Jane Hotel in New York City has tremendous history. It was completed in 1908 as the American Seaman's Friend Society Sailors' Home and Institute.  In 1912, the survivors of the Titanic stayed at the hotel until the end of the American Inquiry into the ship's sinking.  The surviving crew held a memorial service at the hotel four days after the ship sank.

 

Originally built as a hotel for sailors with cabin-like rooms, the land marked hotel was lovingly restored on its centennial in 2008 and recently opened.

 

We didn't do much here, but what we did, we did very quickly. In fact so quickly, we're almost afraid to tell to avoid creating impossible expectations from others.

 

With about two weeks remaining before the opening, the owners dropped at our showroom from the back of a pick up an old Chesterfield sofa along with an antique Victorian style chair and pictures of an English scroll sofa.

 

Our mission (should we chose to accept it) was to build huge 12 foot sofas in both styles along with seating for the lobby. We delivered a couple of weeks later directly to the site. Our foreman begged us not to even talk about jobs with such tight lead times. I guess next time we'll give him four weeks to furnish a lobby.

 

If you think your project is impossible, it probably is. But call us. You never know. We may be able to create a miracle.
