Miles & May Furniture Works, an Upstate New York modern furniture studio stands by its belief that honest design articulated through unique material and impeccable craftsmanship will withstand the test of time. With a sustainable design, nearly 90% of their wood is reclaimed, recycled, or from local non-commercial sources. The timber used are hand-picked, milled and dried to specifications. The process is time-consuming, often spanning years, but results in material and form that are meant to be together. Miles & May, in addition to donating 10% of their net profits to charity, has initiatives to ensure that American design and craftsmanship lives on. With a design focused on showcasing the history and character of each hand-selected piece of wood, their pieces are also handcrafted using both traditional methods and modern techniques.
