The highest quality craftsmanship demands timeless style and a beautiful finish. Developed over centuries, American woodworking prioritizes balance, combining durability and comfort to create forms that guarantee function. With a lifetime ahead of them, designs are naturally classic, forward-thinking and finished with satin oil.

  • STANDARDS: Seating is handmade from solid, kiln-dried and FSC-certified sustainable hardwood. Each component part is conceived according to structural and aesthetic qualities of its tree of origin, including woodgrain and natural coloring. Classical construction includes hand-turned legs, wood-on-wood joinery and steam bent backs. Available nowhere else, our hand-rubbed oil finish creates the option to touch-up at any time without a professional or toxic chemicals.
  • Backless benches, storage benches and dovetailed trunks are built locally, while dining chairs, stools, rockers, benches and desk chairs are handmade by Amish craftsmen in Ohio, then finely sanded and finished here in Boulder. Read about today’s Amish chairmakers and our unique partnership here.
  • OPTIONS: Each piece of seating is Made-to-Order. Choose a style and a wood species, and specify arm or side, stool heights and bench lengths. Add upholstery in any fabric or leather to almost any chair or bench. Backless benches and seating with storage combines multiple functions, with dovetailed drawers on soft-close glides, fixed or adjustable shelves and custom details that make it yours. Outdoor seating is built in Niwot, CO out of locally salvaged Beetlekill Blue Pine.
