Majority ownership was acquired in March 2011 by Jonas Geiger, president; Furniture by Dovetail was founded in 1988 by Robert and Annette Loring.
Geiger says the staff increase reflects greater demand for quality furniture.

Furniture by Dovetail added three craftsmen to its cabinet-making shop, two millwork experts for installations, two operations managers, and an operations assistant.
Among the new hires are Peter Bellofatto, who returned to the company from a period of self-employment; Krystian Rynkiewicz, formerly a cabinet maker for Dartmouth Woodworking; and Robert Wyman, formerly with the Custom Cabinet Shop of Thoughtforms Corp. Wyman has particular expertise in curved features
