Forest Furnishings

  Our Forest Furnishings line draws inspiration from the woods on Cape Ann, MA. There, the native New England Eastern Red Cedar trees get bent down by heavy snow loads and take on shapes like no other trees. Jim can walk through the woods and see just the right branches for our beds or other furniture. The ones he  selects are all "dead & down". No live trees are harvested for our furniture. These trees when used for furniture bring a sense of "refined rustic" to any style of furniture, and bring these magnificant trees back to life.

Custom bench

Custom bench

This bench was a super custom design. The concept was a gift for a client's husband for a dock on a lake here in Maine. Much care was given in the design and even the ergonomics..it fits the human body like a glove. Jim hand carved the salmon out of Mahogany, the bench itself is White Cedar logs...Stunning!

Massive 13ft x 5ft dining table with removable company boards. The top is reclaimed Hemlock planks from an 1800's barn. Also, inlaid into the top are antique floor grates that serve as trivets and also hide a hole in the top to plug in a fondue pot without unsightly wires hanging about...Brilliant!

This is a great shot of Jim fitting the Cedar logs together to form one of the pedestals for a large custom dining table. Each piece had to fit exactly right.

This is one of our favorite pieces. In three sections, this piece sits at the foot of a large staircase, so we thought to vent the components, with decorative iron grates instead of the typical drilled holes or slots. The fron also has an applied edge of perfectly scribed Cedar branch to finish of the look.

Each tree bed is a one of a kind piece, as no two trees are alike. Each one has a look and character all it's own. We seek out dead and downed trees fallen over from heavy snow loads or high winds. These trees grow near salt wate areas and develop crazy twists and bends as the weather and age. Jim's master joinery skills and keen eye for building things in his mind team up to create these beautiful beds.
