Commissioning

“Commissioning a piece of furniture should be an exciting and fun experience.”

Many clients and friends are unfamiliar with the process of commissioning a piece of furniture. You may not know exactly what you want, but there is something that is drawing you to a custom piece, and that something is our starting point. Every piece is a conversation in materials and design.

We talk. We look at photos of what you like and don’t like. We look at books and examples. We explore materials and finishes, and develop ideas. I sketch and you respond. In the end, it is a collaboration. The pieces that I craft are better as a result.

“It is immensely gratifying to see a new work enrich the lives of others.”
