April 2014 Meeting – Barbo Furniture

The Barbo furniture company has been an active business in Bellingham for most of the past 80 years. Originally started by Chris Barbo’s father and uncle, it had to close during WW II, and also briefly in 1978 when Chris’s dad decided to retire. That’s when Chris got involved. Today, Chris and his wife Holly create one of a kind pieces and repair/refinish fine furniture and antiques. They’ve even done pianos! Chris’s formal education was in music and Holly is an artist. Together, they make a great team and enjoy what they do. They plan to bring a few examples of their work and tell us more about their business. For more information on the Barbos, see their website at www.barbofurniture.com
