American twins, Leslie and Leigh Keno, are introducing Quick Response code technology to their furniture line.
The twins may be recognised from their appearances on Antiques Roadshow, which previously aired on PBS, and their reality show ‘Buried Treasure’, which takes them in search of hidden valuables in people’s homes. In 2010, they started their own line of furniture, based on 18th century design and hand crafted by Theodore Alexander, using tools which would have been used in the 18th century.
However, after spending time on the road promoting their new line of furniture, the twins will now be helped by the use of new technology. The latest pieces in their collection, which are going to be on display at High Point furniture market in North Carolina will have a Quick Response code which is similar to a barcode. The code, when scanned will link users of smartphones to a video which is mobile compatible, of the Keno twins giving a description of the piece of furniture.
The Keno twins have been involved with antiques all their life, as their parents were antique dealers. In their new designs, the twins have concentrated on the same qualities that they would look for in antique furniture; detail, quality and craftsmanship. Their contemporary furniture has been based on 18th century style and craftsmanship, but sold with the aid of smartphones and computers.
For residents of the United Kingdom who prefer genuine antique furniture, there are a number of reputable antique dealers who are experts in fine pieces, like antique desks in the Preston area.
