Hey, we're BFA - artists at altitude, based in Boulder since 1985. Our furniture is built one piece at a time and designed for your best future.
WHO WE ARE
Situated next to the mountains, we have an impossible task: make home outperform nature in order to become our favorite place. The art of furniture is a drive for excellence, in quality of craft and longevity of design. We love people through simple furniture, co-designing objects that compel and comfort a natural existence.
THE FLATIRON BED
In 1985, we started with five. Today, we still strive for lasting art, objects, and structures that reflect our clients' unique perspectives of the world.
CO-OWNER + LEAD DESIGNER
A natural visionary, Hannah is the driving creative force behind our work. From concept to testing to execution, her thorough and nuanced approach yields amazing results for our clients.
CO-OWNER + CEO
Lee started at BFA in 1999, determined to steward Boulder through an emergence of livable objects. He leads our teams with clarity, and brings a fresh perspective to each project.
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Self-described "Nebraska farm boy" Derrick is head of workshop operations, with unparalleled grasp of how furniture hits the senses. He carries an actual tacklebox of finishing and inlay tools.
With nearly forty years of built work behind us, we're pretty good at getting our clients from point a)nalysis to point b)eautiful.
Everything we do follows tried-and-true processes that let our team bring you the design and quality we’re known for. Projects vary by need and scope, but we love a challenge and stick by your side every step of the way.
Here’s some of what we can do together.
We partner on private homes every day. Start with a design from made-to-order collection of modern classics, then choose a size, your favorite wood species and more. Every category comes with its own options from table expansion to headboard height.
We take the "complicated" out of custom with a tried-and-true process that produces spectacular results. Nothing beats decades of knowledge and experience for knowing what works and avoiding common pitfalls.
We work with discerning designers, architects and commercial clients for large-scale projects and original designs. Get in touch for special terms.
