We decided to start our on-line carpentry shop because we love making our own products. We throw ideas at each other and of course love working with other people and making their ideas a reality. I have been creative all my life. I studied Art & Design for 4 years in England, then once obtaining a Graphic Design Degree I worked in London. Some years later, I moved to Germany, where I met my husband Alex.
Alex and I teamed up to combine our artistic skills together. Alex has a Studio Masters. When we first met Alex built and worked on stage sets for films and tv shows. I painted the film sets with specialized finishes. Later on we then moved on to designing interiors for hotels, discotheques and then modern birch furniture for residential homes and restaurants. Over the years we have learnt to design, create and use birch multiply in all functions of our work. For each client, I would produce a watercolour visual or black and white pen and ink sketches of our combined ideas. Together with Alex, we would turn the sketches and ideas into reality.
In 2008 we moved to Canada and worked towards opening our own workshop once again.
We have now opened our online design and carpentry shop. Working with Etsy from our work shop in Vernon, British Columbia.
Our children, Nils (31) and Amy (20) gave us lots of inspiration regarding children’s designs and needs whilst growing up. We would like to share our knowledge and experience using solid birch multiply to design clean modern furniture. We like to combine some of our own designs with your inspirational ideas too!
Currently we are working on building up a collection of new modern furniture pieces and artwork ideas all the time. We will add them to our shop and website as soon as they are ready!
We hope you like our on-line carpentry shop and we look forward to hearing from you, and having the opportunity of working with you on your projects!
