Having been interested in beautiful and rare Americana for more than thirty years, twin brothers Leigh and Leslie Keno are considered foremost experts on antiques. As appraisers on the PBS Emmy nominated hit, Antiques Roadshow, they have become celebrities beyond the refined world of art and Americana. When it comes to furniture expertise, twin brothers Leigh and Leslie Keno are unrivaled.
Both Leigh and Leslie lecture extensively across the country. Their energy and enthusiasm win over every audience in an enlightening, engaging presentation filled with amusing discovery anecdotes and tips on finding antique treasures.
Now, television’s most recognized furniture authorities have created their own classically modern furniture destined to become the heirlooms of tomorrow. Leslie and Leigh chose Theodore Alexander to craft their pieces.
“They get us, and the passion is right from our hearts. It’s a perfect blending of an incredible intelligent and knowledgeable team. They are sincere. They are passionate about what they do. A company that makes beautiful things and cares about it is a perfect mesh for us. Beauty is extremely important. However beauty without quality is superficial. We do not believe in superficial beauty, we believe in beauty within. Any company can make furniture, but Theodore Alexander pays attention to detail on everything. Everyone was working and they cared about the work – it was really special. It wasn’t machine stamped out pieces, each piece was hand cut – tools used in the 18th century – that’s what amazed us the most. Some of these tools were made by the craftsmen! It was hard to get us out of the factory. We could have spent days there. Each of the craftspeople seemed so focused on the quality.” - Leigh and Leslie
The Keno Bros Collection represents pieces that Leslie and Leigh have seen in their past and objects they have grown up with, pieces from the 18th century through the 20th century that have beautiful lines and curves.
