American antique specialists Leigh and Leslie Keno, widely-known for their "Antiques Roadshow" television appearances, are bringing their own line of furniture to the masses through "flash sale" Website One Kings Lane. Online shoppers can, for a limited time, pick up discounted pieces from the line that the twin brothers have designed since 2010 for high-end furnishings company Thomas Alexander.

"In this age of disposable objects our goal is to create heirlooms of the future—high-quality pieces that are built to last," states the pair. "We’ve been able to design pieces crafted by hand, just like hundreds of years ago, in a completely fresh context.”

Pieces range from about $600 to $4,500 on One Kings Lane's site, with inventory quickly dwindling down, according to figures given on the descriptions. Styles run the gamut from rococo-inspired forms to riffs on mid-century modern classics, with an emphasis on fine materials and craftsmanship throughout. 

“One of the most underestimated aspects of any piece of furniture is the grain pattern, or the figuring of the wood," say the Kenos. "We enjoy using the movement in the wood grain to accentuate and magnify the form itself.”

Leigh Keno is known as an Americana dealer and for his eponymous auction house, established in 2009. Leslie is the  American furniture expert at Sotheby's.
