River City Bicycles

Dave Guettler, founder of River City Bicycles, opened the doors to his shop 15 years ago. According to Dave, he opened his shop because "as a cycling enthusiast, I wanted to build the store from the perspective of an enthusiast, I wanted to give them a store they'd be really excited to walk into."

Christina Dining Chair

Fresh on the floor are the Christina Dining Chairs shown in Cherry with Starburst Blue fabric from Kravet. The Christina Dining Chair looks great with our Jost Dining Table.

Home & Garden Show

We are excited to display our furniture in the Devolution exhibit by Oswego Design & Remodeling at the Portland Home & Garden Show this week. The event is hosted at the Portland Expo Center February 22nd - 26th from 11am - 8pm Wednesday - Friday, Saturday from 10am - 8pm, & Sunday from 10am - 6pm.

A current design trend in the industry is pairing Brick with wooden accents & furniture.

Because brick has a warm golden or reddish undertone, Cherry and Walnut are fantastic accent choices.

Tansu

Fresh on the floor is our Tansu Cabinet in Cherry right alligned. Our Tansu is a traditional Asian piece with numerous drawers and doors. We especially love the dovetail detail and plinth base. For more information about our Tansu click here.

Mortise & Tenon

Mortis and Tenon is a traditional woodworking technique used to join two piece of lumber at a 90 degree angle.  Among other products, The Joinery uses mortise & tenon joints when building their dining chairs.   The photograph above shows a dining chair apron tenon which is being inserted into a mortise on the chair leg.

Modern Storage Bench

We love our new Modern Storage Bench,  shown above in Cherry. Our Storage bench has plenty of shelf room for your shoes and is perfect for a mud room or in your entry way.

Gunther Keil, the artist behind Wild Apples, was raised in Berlin and as a self-taught woodworker, his toys reflect his German toy-making traditions. He currently lives in central New York on a 55 acre farm where he enjoys raising sheep and bees. Gunther started making wooden toys over 30 years ago and his work has been shown in the Smithsonian, American Craft and Toy Museums world wide.

We especially love that he harvests his own trees on his land to create all of his crafts. For more information about Wild Apples, click here. Here are a few of our favorites from their company:
