for comfort. Every stool features hand-turned walnut legs with mortise-tenon joinery for strength. Details such as butterfly key inlays and hand-turned circular drawers available. Photography by Sam Jackson.

Handshaped ebony pulls and solid walnut half-blind dovetailed drawer boxes, with dividers for cufflinks and ties, complete this piece. Photography by Sam Jackson.

ONLINE EXCLUSIVE. Randolph St Light in reclaimed birch. Using raw, unfinished birch means that every Randolph Street Light is organically one-of-a-kind. The material comes from a massive branch that Stefan discovered in the middle of a treeless, industrial area in Brooklyn, NY. Features frosted globe bulbs. Photography by Sam Jackson.

ONLINE EXCLUSIVE. Saloon Table in reclaimed cedar and maple. This modern interpretation of the classic saloon table
