It all started with a coffee table.

We like to think of the coffee table as the centerpiece for your home – the focal point of a living room where you likely spend most of your waking hours, well, living. It's where you put your feet up at the end of a long day, where you rest that hot cup of coffee, and if you have a little one, it's probably where your kiddo steadied themselves when they stood on their wobbly legs for the first time. Thinking about how so much life can take place around a single piece of furniture, we wanted to make it beautiful, and as unique as the person to whom it belongs.

Once we built that perfect coffee table, we couldn't stop – so we set out to make a side table, and things naturally progressed from there.

No two pieces of furniture we create are the same. Our furniture uses reclaimed wood or beautiful wood burl for a one-of-a-kind, intricate surface combined with a frame of raw steel that's built to the perfect size for your space. 

We craft everything by hand in the hill country, just outside of Austin, Texas. It takes a little more time to produce furniture this way, but we think it’s worth it. We hope you’ll love our work as much as we love making it.
