When Carl and I began crossed paths, we had disparate backgrounds and experiences in woodworking, but we shared a common goal: to make works of such unique design and quality that it changed our clients feelings about furniture. So, we decided that Franklin Street would create unique interpretations that combined sculptural, and personal visions balanced with functional purpose.
People form relationships with our furniture, because it is so unique, it feels good, works well and generally exceeds their expectations. At heart we are designers and builders and one of the best parts of the process is listening to our customers. We love it when our customer bring their ideas to us. In building our furniture, we are not promoting an image, but participating in our customers lives. And, as they collaborate with us, our customers often inspire us.
We are in a beautifully, renovated old building where history resonates and we can welcome visitors, but our goal remains the same - to build a great relationship with our customers and the focus on the integrity of our work. We are committed to the responsible use of scarce resources, including the use of salvaged woods.
It is a huge pleasure to exceed our customers’ expectations, in design, craftsmanship and service.
We look forward to exceeding yours.
