We use only the finest domestic hardwoods for all of our furniture, grown right here in North America.
Wood is a natural product and can vary in tone, color and grain from tree to tree and board to board. We celebrate these diverse characteristics.
Our furniture is finished by hand with an oil blend that protects and highlights the wood's natural properties.
Acer Sacchurum, also known as sugar maple or hard maple, grows throughout the northeastern United States and eastern Canada. The finished wood is a light blonde that turns golden over time. The trees are the most shade tolerant of the large deciduous trees that grow throughout America. They can live for over 400 years. The wood is very hard and resilient. For years, their lumber has been used for basketball courts, bowling alleys, and furniture.
Prunus Serotina or black cherry grows across eastern North America. The trees can reach 100 feet tall and live for up to 250 years. The wood when cut and first finished is almost a pink shade of orange, but with exposure to sun over time the wood gets much darker, with shades of deep red and brown. The wood contains small brown flecks and gum deposits naturally.
Julgans Nigra, also known as eastern black walnut or black walnut, grows throughout eastern North America. The oiled wood is a deep dark brown that lightens over time. The trees live, on average to 150 years and can live to be over 250. They naturally release chemicals from their roots and tissue that can harm other organisms, giving the trees a competitive advantage. They are grown for both their walnuts and lumber simultaneously. The deep chocolate colored grain is highly sought after by quality furniture makers throughout the world.
Quercus Alba, or white oak grows in abundance over most of North America. The finished wood is a golden honey color. White oak trees can grow massive canopies, spreading outward parallel to the ground. They do not begin producing acorns until their 50th year. White oaks live on average 200 to 300 years old, but some specimens have been estimated at 600 years old. The lumber is hard and heavy, with an open grain structure that makes a nice subtle contrast and texture. The plentiful lumber has been used in beams, millwork, and furniture for centuries.
Also known as ebonized oak or ebonized ash. Truthfully, ash lumber stock in North America is starting to dwindle. It is getting harder for us to source consistent quality ash boards here on the west coast. This is due to an invasive species called the emerald ash bore that are decimating the ash forests that were plentiful just a generation ago. We source oak and dye it black with a water based dye. Our black furniture shows off the wood grain texture, but also highlights the pure sculptural form of the furniture.

Leather is a natural product and can vary from hide to hide.
We utilize a polypropylene rope with a yacht weave on all of our rope woven seats.
Similar to rope used in both climbing gear and some sailing lines, it is a synthetic rope that feels delightfully soft and tactile to touch. Our rope will stretch just slightly over time into a comfortable seat after many years of use.
