Lake Placid Lodge, rebuilt after a devastating fire in 2005, is a testament to the wealth of talent to be found in the Adirondack region.  Over sixty area artisans were vital in creating a property of such richness and character that it has been called “a national treasure”.

Among the craftspeople, woodworkers, masons, painters, and rustic furniture builders, there are none whose work is so well-represented at The Lodge, nor which demonstrates such versatility as that of Larry and Joann Post.  From skillfully and sensitively adapting antique furniture for 21st century hotel use, to decorative painting executed with verve and often humor, the Posts were our go-to source for assignments requiring creativity and craftsmanship over and above the already high level of talent available to us.

Not only could they find solutions to design conundrums, they were always able to complete their commissions on time and on budget.  It was also always a real pleasure to work with them both, as they are among the nicest, least egotistical people one will find anywhere.

"We met Larry and Joann on the occasion of their first showing at the Adirondack Museum Rustic Fair at Blue Mountain Lake several years ago.  We were immediately impressed by the combination of quality rustic craftsmanship and artistic design in each piece of furniture we saw.  Others like us apparently agreed as L. Post Rustics won the Rustic Fair's "People's Choice Award" that year, which goes to the favorite artist at the show as judged by the public.  Since then, we've been the beneficiary of multiple custom-made commission works by Larry and Joann, as well as additional pieces that we couldn't resist purchasing. The latest of these is a beautiful walnut credenza with a burled walnut top and maple burls on the base. Jillian Post has accentuated the piece with intricate carvings of acorns as the door pulls, basket weaved  pilasters and wildlife on the face of the doors. Its an amazing piece of art and craftsmanship, all in one. 

Besides being great Adirondack rustic artists, you won't find more honest, humble and gracious people."
