Urban Intentional

Urban inspired with intentional purpose. We hand craft beautiful products for the office and home.

The things in your home are not static, they have the power to tell a story. We believe that furniture created with intentionality and care will likewise create a similar tone of intentionality and care in the home and office.

Our furniture is created to tell a story, and likewise, it is inspired by stories.

Urban inspiration come out in our products, sometimes overtly, and sometimes with subtle nuance. By mixing mediums that remind us of urban places we create ‘Tangible Stories’ that live in your office and home.

We design storied products with the intention that they cause conversation, and perhaps, that those who gather around our products might pause and be present.

Our materials are chosen purposefully for their non-toxic and enduring properties. What we make is good for you, good for us, and good for the earth. We source sustainable hardwood, Appleply and Columbia Forest laminates, and Tried & True Food and Skin safe finishes.
