Our friends at STRADA in Pittsburgh worked with us to design a suite of furnishings for the Law Center at West Virginia University. The furnishings were completed and installed recently and our friend, Matt Wargo, photographed the installation for us.

The project consisted of end panels, grouped study carrels, ganged study carrels, half carrels and tables; all of quartered cherry with a custom stain...

My stack of catalog price lists has dwindled down to a very small pile, begging us to get to the printer for some more. This process begins, of course, with a review of all of our prices in case we need to make changes. This time around, we do need to make changes.

So, we will be issuing new prices on our signature designs - those found on our website and catalog - on June 10th.

And that means…THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO PLACE AN ORDER! If you are considering a new piece of furniture from our catalog, order before June 10th to ensure you receive the current price.

John Tomaszewski is a self-taught wood turner. He stops by our workshop now and then to pick up some of our ends and cut-offs. He digs out large chunks of maple, oak, cherry and most recently walnut.

John used to work building houses and always enjoyed working with wood. He’s now in the US Coast Guard, working primarily in the Boston area. To feed his love of woodworking, he began to dabble in turning: reading books, experimenting with different tools and lathes. He’s never taken a wood turning class. He taught himself how to sharpen his own tools too. He’s into it...

One night, Saer and his wife, Genell, were at home looking through a new issue of Old Port Magazine. They leafed through the style section in which a local couple was dressed in beautiful clothing from local retailers and photographed in a lovely, familiar setting in Portland; presented as models, the couple looked lovely. The article called out all of individual pieces of clothing and accessories, but also discussed the works and successes of the couple themselves. It’s a regular section in Old Port Magazine; one many look forward to...

This past fall Saer Huston occupied much of his time here with two unique pieces of custom furniture for an investment firm in NJ, Raging Capital Management.

A furniture-making friend, the Lead Instructor at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, Aled Lewis, approached Bill Huston with a sketch for a conference table and credenza he had designed for Raging Capital. He had the designs fairly well worked out, but couldn’t build it on his own with his teaching...

In late 1987, when Bill Huston decided to open his own business as a custom furniture builder, his sister, Jill, a graphic designer, offered to create a logo and some mock-ups of marketing materials that Bill could take to the bank to procure his first business loan. From that day on Jill was Huston & Company's sole graphic designer; creating every catalog, every postcard, every advertisement and every printed marketing tool for the company for 27 years. The logo she created in 1987 is the same iconic logo - with its long sweeping ampersand -  we use today.

In the fall...

We are very excited about our new partnership with the Ogunquit Museum of Art, as mentioned in our previous blog post. We have designed and built new benches for the Museum, which are available for purchase as a naming opportunity in the Museum, and to order for your own home.
