After giving up my day job in 2012, the goal was to transform true passion into a creative venture that followed ideas of what it means to live in a kinder world.
With skills of design and woodworking in hand, mixed in some vintage inspiration, that led to building a micro business creating one-of-a-kind upcycled and handcrafted custom furniture. I am grateful for the impact made with conscious material use and stick to a 100% no waste policy, even the sawdust is composted!
By keeping items out of the landfill, by giving things a new life to be loved again, by building new pieces from material that is usually wasted, we are positively contributing to our community, and in a small way, to the state of the world. New pieces use responsibly-sourced, FSC wood and keep within the no waste policy.
And, by using creative skills in this way, I'm pleased to create sustainable, attainable products.
