They’re perfect for bedrooms that don’t have closets, mudrooms and entryways, or for fashionistas whose wardrobes exceed their closet space.

Asian Inspired Furniture Collections. Seen here, the Astrid Bedroom Set in natural cherry.

The term “Asian inspired furniture” isn’t just reserved for black lacquered chests and painted tables. Asian design philosophies have influenced hardwood furniture around the world, and especially here in the United States.

This kind of Eastern design influence is evident in the use of vertical moon-shaped cuts and irregular joinery techniques, such as is seen in our Contemporary Craftsman and Exeter collections, respectively.

Our Vermont Shaker Moon Bed personifies minimalism in the bedroom
Minimalism is all the rage these days, and for good reason. Proponents say a minimal lifestyle can make you happier, healthier, and more purpose driven. Shop for your minimalist bed here.

As No Sidebar puts it, “Every day, more stuff comes into our lives: stuff in our houses, stuff on our calendars, stuff on our minds.

“Every lesson I learned as a kid was at the dinner table. It is where we laughed, cried, and yelled – but most importantly, where we bonded and connected.” – Michael Symon (American chef)

A dining table is one of the most important pieces of furniture in any home. It’s where you gather and feast with family. Sit and sort though mail. Laugh. Cry. And the longer you have a table, the more memories it accumulates.

If you’re looking for a new dining table, you’ve come to the right place. All our dining tables are made in America and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

George Nakashima: Everything You Need to Know

Modern American Bedroom Furniture Collection inspired by George Nakashima
Our Modern American Collection features natural cherry wood with walnut accents and was inspired by the work of George Nakashima.

George Nakashima (1905-1990) was an architect, designer, and woodworker that was a driving force behind 20th-century furniture innovation. The aesthetic of his furniture can be described as a unique mix of European Modernism with Japanese woodwork. Elements woven through his body of work can also be attributed to the influence of his love of nature, formal education in architecture, and his time spent in India.

Nakashima practiced during the mid-20th century, but his work was a divergence from most of the other designers of that period. Whereas many designers during the time looked to incorporate new materials like metal, plastic, plywood, and glass into their designs, Nakashima preferred to work with solid, natural wood. No doubt his relationship with Antonin Raymond, a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright (the father of “Organic Architecture”), influenced this propensity.
