I bought a sofa marked Stav Oak from Salvation Army last month in Grand Rapids MI and was wondering about the history on it. Does anyone know anything about it?

Thank you,
ana

I have two stav oak chairs bought in the 80's they were supposed to be made from jack daniels whiskey barrels. I have been looking to sell them if you are interested.

I have a book case that i am told is stv oak, it actually has a branding mark on it with the jack daniels label. I got info from the jack daniels distillery on this saying it was stav oak and made back in the 80's but is not currently produced, and was made from white oak barrels that where used in the distillery.

Ana, The oak in the sofa is indeed made from Jack Daniel barrel staves; I used to work for this company in Nashville at the time the furniture was brought to market; it was featured during it's early years in the Smithsonian's Museum of American History because it was a unique idea. I own a sofa table myself, and I have a grandson who has already put his designs on it. It is one of a kind; if there is any way to keep it, you should. Jane

I'm curious if your pieces were handed down to you. The original Stav-Oak line was not available long, and the pieces were quite expensive. But they are unique, truly one of a kind and the wood used is Jack Daniel barrel staves!

I just found a stav oak sofa on Craigslist. I love the heavy oak frame and plan to refinish it. I found this website with the history re the Jack Daniels staves from oak barrels very interesting.

Hey. I have a sofa (3 seat) and love seat (2 seat). No cushions on either though cushions are easy enough to purchase at places like Ikea. They are the light wood. i love this furniture, but I no longer have room for them. Anyone interested? There are some very minor condition problems, but easy to resolve. Overall, they are great. I live in Mt. Washington in Baltimore.

As I said in my post, my Mom worked for the Brown/Forman (sp?) co. during the mid to late 70's to very early 80's possibly, and she bought all that she had from them. They were pieces that were in the various different offices there. All were either a dark walnut stained oak, or the light natural look. She did not tell me the prices of any of the pieces; but I assumed that they were not cheap, being where they had been(The Brown/Forman/Jack Daniel offices), and what they were made of, the barrel staves from Jack Daniels whiskey barrels. My mom just recently passed (81 a little over a year ago) so I was trying to get in touch with the Garden Lady, to see if she had met my mom, but it is possible she has passed also. Sorry not alot of help. It is very good sturdy furniture, that I do know, and I have seen around my family since the late 70's (or early 80's as I said above) I keep it because of the family connection more than anything, but it looks in great shape after all hese years.Al

To: Shellie in Tn. I do not know why it shows me in Piedmont Al, because I live just a little north of Nashville (for what it's worth). And again I am sorry for knowing so little about the furniture, but as I said it is very sturdy and still looks like brand new. Al

Davis Cabinet Co. of Nashville made the couches.

W.L. Davis advised me that value would highly depend on condition;
and then whether a collector is after it;
so it could be worth anywhere from zero to $2000 or so;
this is really a who knows, but would probably cost at least $ 3000 to custom build one today...
