Our Logo

Fortree Hill Furniture 

The story behind our logo.

It's a simple extraordinary story.

The flower is simply from our family screen, the Chao Family screen you see above. The flower is in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

The extraordinary, is that two courageous women, my mother-in-law and her mother, Chinese democratic reformers during WWII, when leaving China with the advancing political changes, were forced to make decisions of what to take along and what to leave behind. This screen was among the few items to make the journey leaving Shanghi. In tribute to them and their choices, the FHF Logo.

I honor them.
