FURNITURE FOR GENERATIONS
With the creation of every chair, rocker, table and stool we hope to further a common goal: furniture built to last generations.
It was not very long ago when most household items were built by hand instead of assembled on a manufacturing line. Clothing required a visit to a tailor or seamstress, homes did not come in prefabricated sections, many craftsmen made their livelihood building only tables and chairs.
In today's society of ready to wear merchandise and off the rack accessories there's an element of pride and humanity missing from the everyday objects in our lives.
Recognizing that a chair built over 30 hours will always trump 300 built in a factory workday, each of our furnishings are constructed using only the best quality materials and the highest standards in craftsmanship. Our hope is that every Brian Boggs chair and table will last not only generations of ownership but also pay tribute to the generation of trees from which they came.
BUILT TO ORDER
Worth The Wait
Premium furniture demands an exclusive ordering process. All Brian Boggs Chairmakers' furnishings made to order in our Asheville, North Carolina workshop using a blend of proprietary machining processes and fine woodworking skills. We work exclusively with premium, sustainably sourced lumber.
Inspired designs by a master chairmaker.
Brian Boggs is internationally acclaimed among woodworkers and furniture designers. His award-winning original designs embody uncompromising standards of comfort, craftsmanship, and beauty; the result of nearly 35 years honing his craft.
Growing up Brian never expected to be a woodworker, but he always knew he would be an artist. When he discovered the path of chairmaking he also discovered the art of reconstructing a tree. Beginning with local logs, sassafras from a local farm or the occasional fallen maple he earned a deep appreciation for the integrity of natures creations.
In every Brian Boggs Chair this appreciation shows through with careful attention paid to every joint and rung. When inspecting one of our chairs pay close attention to the grain orientation, how every piece of wood in our chairs is used to it's fullest advantage.
How it Began
Inspired designs by a master chairmaker. Brian Boggs is internationally acclaimed amongst woodworkers and furniture designers. His award-winning original designs embody uncompromising standards of comfort, craftsmanship, and beauty.
From the time I was about 8 years old I knew I was going to be an artist. I always thought that it would be in the realm of landscape painting and drawing. Then in my early 20's I discovered James Krenov's books on “The Fine Art of Cabinet Making." I had never considered that art could take the form of the things we use everyday. I could hardly put the book down and found myself reading everything he wrote, one book after the other...
Where We Are Today
Premium furniture demands an exclusive ordering process. Every item is built by hand in our Asheville, North Carolina workshop, using a blend of proprietary machining processes and fine woodworking skills. We work exclusively with premium, sustainably sourced lumber; we honor each tree by giving it a second life as beautiful, heirloom-quality furniture.
Brian's woodworking philosophy stems from an ingrained respect for nature, as it is reflected by trees and the human body alike. Our craftsmen continue to honor his early lessons learned from years of splitting trees apart to obtain perfect grain orientation.
