Ideation

During the initial consultation, we ask a few questions, learning about the client’s desires, preferences, timeline, and budget. We often trade photos and sketches back and forth trying to get a real sense of options available to the client.

Drafting

After the initial consultation, we spend a few days here at the design studio coming up with a preliminary design or two as well as a price estimate. Over the course of a few phone calls, emails, and revisions a final design and price is determined and submitted to the client for approval.

Materials

All projects begin at the same place – sourcing materials. Our lumber from North Carolina. The Oak and Poplar, Maple we use comes from a source in the Carolinas that painstakingly checks to make sure the wood is responsibly harvested. Many of the textiles we use are vintage and antique, however we pull our fabrics from three local American textile mills. And our reclaimed and heritage woods either come from old teardowns in the state of NC, from local salvage yards or from fallen trees in Virginia. The majority of our projects are made with domestic solid woods, such as Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Oak, and Poplar. Some of these woods originate from mills in the Delaware /Pennsylvania and on the Canadian Border. We choose to buy and hand select our woods here for their quality. The wood comes directly from the property and has been properly kiln dried to ensure proper moisture content. Kiln drying also preserves the wood strength that is normally lost in the moisture kept from the air drying processes.

Sample-Making

When producing a small production run of home goods, a sample or prototype is created for approval by the client. If the order is a one-off creation, a final drawing is approved before creation.

Production

We work with designers, large and small to create products that are one offs, small batches, and large batches.
