"Make every product better than it’s ever been done before. Make the parts you cannot see as well as the parts you can see. Use only the best materials, even for the most everyday items. Give the same attention to the smallest detail as you do the largest. Design every item you make to last forever.”
— Shaker Philosophy of Furniture Making
"Craft is a shared story. Perfection is not found in making one perfect table, but in the collective work of artisans across time, telling and retelling the story over the ages through a thousand tables, each one pointing beyond itself and proving its perfection not by technical detail, but by the people gathered around it."
Inspired by Tradition
Old World Craftsmanship has an ethos different than the current mass-production mindset. It was built on integrity; doing things the right way, for the right reasons, at the right time even when no one is looking. It was built on the dignity of the work, the care for purpose, and respect for the trade tradition.
Made for Life
Truly beautiful furniture doesn't live merely in the galleries, it has the wear of everyday life. Meals with friends, the chaos of kids, lingering conversations, and the accidents and oopses of daily use it. It is the humanity of the piece in creation and use that makes the piece truly perfect.
Crafted by Hand
Small imperfections or irregularities speak to a level of incredible skill and humanity anything else. An honorable craftsmen cares deeply about the craft of woodworking, but cares even more about the person he is crafting the piece for.
