This short video shows Huntington House furniture being made. They say their furniture is for "... clients who want to invest in their furniture".

Two thoughts:

1. I want to sit on my furniture, not invest in it.

2. Who would want to invest in furniture where the joints are held together with 2" wire staples? Or I am just being a wood glue snob and it doesn't matter if you use staples or glue?

Glue and dowels are better than Glue and Staples.  I think given the production environment - the staples hold the joint tight while the glue dries and there's no stoppage in production for example if the joints had to be clamped together for a few hours too much down time.  I also think if they only shoot one staple to hold a joint  that won't weaken the joint like when they shoot three staples into one area.  The staples don't split out the wood as much as a nail would.  This construction is under the rags - not exposed joinery that's scrutinized - and it's probably figured in to be enough strength to last the average life span of one owner.
I never heard of this manufacturer - is it competitively priced ?  The good names I remember and whose still standing ? - were Pennsylvania House, Baker, John Stuart, Karges, Henredon, Kittenger to name a few - I'm sure their construction was similar to this video.   It seems you need a lot of training to be allowed to finish the legs -  that's some tough quality control there :)
