After 25 years in downtown Birmingham, Quatrine Custom Luxury Furniture, 254 W. Maple, is closing its doors on March 31, showroom manager Carol Budziszewski confirmed. “We will not have any stores in Michigan – this was the only one,” she said. She said Gina Quatrine, the furniture store’s owner, is a Michigan native, but is now based in Long Beach, California – and that is where the company is based. Quatrine offers custom furniture based around custom slipcovers, with the idea that you choose the piece of furniture that excites you, have it custom made, and then have slipcovers made to allow you to live a flexible – and washable – life. “Customers will still be able order from us and get service through our Chicago rep, or from our corporate office,” Budziszewski said.
