Story – Workshop
We are a company
of people, dedicated
to design, craftsmanship
and local manufacturing.
Our furniture is built in limited series using a combination of traditional and modern woodworking techniques and machinery. The workshop is the heart of our business, hand selecting our materials, building one piece at a time and ensuring the best possible quality. Whether it’s a piece of furniture or milling for a special project, the approach is the same.
Depending on the wood species we apply either hand rubbed oils or clear coat, water based lacquers. American black walnut, for instance, benefits from oil as it protects the wood and enhances the natural, deep brown colour. For our lighter woods, American white oak and Quebec maple we use a low VOC, water based, clear coat that also protects and maintains the natural beauty of the wood. With each piece our goal is to transform raw material into elegant durable designs, bringing a sense of lightness and a minimal feel to the wood.
It is our belief that quality cannot be rushed. When we opened our shop almost 20 years ago our goal was simple, to make well made furniture in our hometown of Montreal. Today we have a proud and dedicated team of people doing just that.
The basics are important to us. A simple white t-shirt, a classic pair of jeans, a good pair of boots. The same goes for our home. A timeless table, a classic chair, a solid bed and a beautiful light. A slow gradual process of layering. Room by room, one piece at a time. Our furniture is simple and understated.
Hardwood comes from slow growing, deciduous trees that are amazingly dense, durable and resilient. With proper care, furniture produced using these amazing species can last a lifetime – it’s our material of choice. We have long standing relationships with our wood suppliers, who source lumber from sustainably managed forests.
