About Brian Boggs Chairmakers
Brian and Melanie Boggs at their shop in Asheville, NC
A Brian Boggs chair is not just a chair. It is a tree whose second life will be celebrated for generations.
Brian Boggs Chairmakers, INC, originally founded in Berea, KY in 1983, relocated to Asheville, NC in 2008 with a new vision and more passion than ever before.
As an internationally acclaimed chairmaker, respected for original design, sustainable practices, exquisite craftsmanship, and amazing comfort, Brian sets out on his third decade with a huge goal, to produce the best furniture in the world.
Our craftsmen continue to honor his early lessons learned from years of splitting trees apart to obtain perfect grain orientation. To keep this process intact at Brian Boggs Chairmakers, we still start our building process with a log rather than commercially purchased lumber. Each board is sawn to specification according to the tree’s anatomy. With the tree’s structure in mind, every design re-integrates the fibers of the wood to serve several purposes:
- To comfort
- To inspire
- To endure
We build each piece to order and provide heirlooms to our client’s families that last long enough to grow the next generations of mature trees.
Our Mission – Provide world-class furniture to the market place.
Our Vision – To inspire a genuine culture of excellence in the furniture industry.
