versatile and stunning
this collection has it all

The Debra Collection

The Debra collection features several pieces including a table, bench and credenza. It’s versatile design elements work in a variety of pieces and can be utilized in almost any configuration. Case goods, like this credenza, are made from solid hardwood and the back is completely finished. Drawers are crafted using traditional dovetail joinery and open and close on a concealed soft close drawer slide. For added lux, drawer bottoms are lined with leather creating a soft place for items to land. Doors are always done up in brass or stainless steel knife hinges and lock into place with a subtle bullet catch. My dad always says, “keep it simple, Stupid” and there’s nothing simpler than an elegant knife hinge.

The Debra design elements also lend themselves well to pieces like tables and benches too. The integrated leg structure is sturdy and stable and can support even the largest of dining tables but is detailed and refined enough to work on a small coffee table or bench. The top of this sturdy leg creates a stunning accent that flaunts the end grain pattern of wood, an element usually concealed under the tabletop. End grain’s unique pattern is flawlessly featured in this collection and just begs to be touched.

Available in a variety of wood types, sizes and configurations; the Debra Collection makes a stunning dresser, credenza, table or bench. Please allow 12 to 16 weeks for construction.

a sexy sexy bed
designed for more than just sleeping

The Heather Bed

The Heather Bed is a sexy sexy bed designed with more than just sleeping in mind, because let’s be honest, a bed is where more than just sleeping takes place. Lovers and families snuggle, cuddle, grow and bond in beds so this headboard is made from luxurious leather that feels oh-so delicate on naked skin and it’s kicked back on an angle to support resting shoulders in a semi-reclining position. The headboard and footboard are both constructed with horizontal rails that not only add stability and integrity to the piece but also offer a place for users to grab onto. These rails offer not only an aesthetic and structural component but also a distinctive functional component that you won’t want to let go of. Go ahead, give it a try, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Available in a variety of wood types and leather options. Please allow 12 to 16 weeks for construction.

sturdy and sassy
this is one badass table

The Nicole Table

The Nicole Table is one badass dining table. The tapered leg and beveled top give the table a distinct lightness that works well in a variety of settings. And rather than using a bulky skirt that wraps around the perimeter of the table-top the legs of the Nicole table come together at the center point. It’s a sassy design element that gives this table a unique aesthetic. Not to mention, it’s crafted from solid hardwood and loose tenon joinery making it really fuckin sturdy too.

Available in a variety of wood types and sizes; round or rectangle. Please allow 8 to 10 weeks for construction.

Duncan is a badass woodworker with a serious side of sass.

Duncan is a badass woodworker with a serious side of sass. She approaches her work with an uncompromising respect for the craft and a solid no-holds-barred attitude. Seams and joints are created by hand, utilizing the traditional principles of joinery and are executed with meticulous precision honed through years of experience.

Form and function meet the woodshop floor and are examined throughout production. Duncan develops concepts sketching by hand, not on a computer screen, and pieces come to fruition organically as parts are constructed and pieces are assembled. Duncan’s work is clean and contemporary, heavily influenced by Japanese aesthetic, with a nod to mid-century modern designers.

Materials and hardware are examined for integrity and only the finest will do. Solid North American hardwoods, Horween leather hides and Brusso hinges are among the finest available and are proudly used in Kate’s work. Duncan never cuts corners and takes great pride in knowing that her work will last for generations to come.
