A classic has to start some place.

Every furniture piece, no matter if it is for the living room, dining room, or bedroom; has a start some place. If a piece is to grow into an antique, it must first be designed by an artist, then built by craftsmen, and sold by a reputable store.



Whether it is in the dining room, living room or game room Maitland Smith has the perfect solution for your home needs. Their 2013 home line includes pieces for your dining room, living room, game room, and all are now available at any of the many Walter E. Smithe Chicagoland stores. Maitland-Smith has been creating exquisite and unique decorative accessories, lighting and accent furniture for over 30 years. Still the design roots for this young firm go much further back in history. Antiques from 17th and 18th Century England have always inspired Maitland Smith style. Drawing inspiration from the classics of the past, they have evolved and today incorporate style, materials and methods found in many other parts of the world. Areas of expertise include metal casting, finely executed porcelains, and sophisticated finishing techniques, detailed hand painting, beautiful inlaid marquetry and the finest hand carved woodwork.

No matter which Walter E. Smithe showroom in which we feature Maitland Smith products, whether it be our Arlington Heights, Geneva, Glendale Heights, Lincoln Park, Lincolnshire, Merrillville, Naperville, Oak Brook, Orland Park, Skokie, or Vernon Hills locations, you will find an impeccable selection of Maitland Smith pieces waiting for your enjoyment.
