Country Furnishings of Taos (CFT) has grown and prospered for almost 30 years to become Taos' favorite home furnishings store.
CFT was founded on its sturdy hand crafted painted furniture which was sold primarily to wholesale accounts around the country. Eventually, founding owner Mary Shriver expanded the business to include accessories, decorative items and gifts to meet the growing needs of her customers. “I slowly brought in other types of furniture, home decor, folk art and gifts. We try to carry something to please everyone."
The store has been located in an old adobe building on Paseo del Pueblo Norte since its inception in 1986. Originally constructed in the 1930's it has been thoroughly renovated and enlarged twice to accommodate our steady growth. We now have over 2000 square feet of display space in seven separate rooms, each offering its own distinctive character and charm.
CFT is a great place to browse. Our merchandise is colorful innovative and fun, for example, a hand carved headboard with vividly painted poppies, brightly colored tin lanterns, sturdy farm tables and desks, aromatic candles, cookbooks and a great variety of gift items. With the new owner, Franchesca Zoppe, the whimsical, artistic, eclectic atmosphere will be maintained.
CFT’s knowledgeable, friendly staff creates a relaxed atmosphere of welcoming hospitality. Complimentary refreshments are available to customers as they browse. With the recent addition of our website and online shopping, customers can now enjoy this atmosphere from their own home (unfortunately, refreshments are not provided). Enjoy your shopping experience at CFT whether in person or online.
