Brooklyn Furniture Makers Our Designers Love

Just across the bridge lies a goldmine of raw (or, more appropriately, live edge) furniture making talent. There’s a lot of hype surrounding the borough, but in reality, Brooklyn really is quite the talent trove. Check out a round-up of makers we want to work with. Did we miss your favorite Brooklyn furniture maker? Tweet us a photo. Check out more inspiring objects on our Pinterest.


Samko rejoices in finding treasures where others see disrepair. In a Cool Hunting interview, Samko “claim[es] joists and structural beams from old demolished buildings is a great and underused resource.” Czechoslovakian-born and Brooklyn hazed, his pieces speak to structure as well as play, embracing aesthetic imperfections and capitalizing on them, making them beautiful. His line is definitely all his own and can be recognized by his expert craftsmanship and attention to detail, but each piece is its own gift, quite like a well written poem among a book of poetry. Secret embellishments and homages to his influencers (like Dali) play a key role in what makes the brand so special.


Well-known for championing live edge, this Brooklyn workshop isn’t afraid to mix it up. With materials, that is. Pairing long haired wool with oak boards never looked so good. A cool collaboration with Nersi Nasseri resulted in a piece called Orbit.


We met Asher at ICFF over the summer and had a really fun talk about brass inlay and Brooklyn. We first called the RISD graduates’ work ephemeral and we’re sticking to it. We were especially enamored with his astrally-charged pieces like the Star Map Table.


Jonah Zuckerman creates thoughtful concept pieces like the Gathering Table have an all-in-one feel. Yet another RISD grad, Zuckerman uses his New York roots to solve problems faced in the city. His travels to Nepal furthered his interest in multiple-functioned furnishings, proving Joinery to be an apt name for the brand. The interesting approach to all-encompassing pieces act like a one-man-band in a space. See the pieces below for a better idea of how that is achieved. And although City Joinery has moved from BK to MA where the rent is (scantily) less, he still has Brooklyn heritage and still makes our list.
