Shaker-Inspired Furniture, Handmade in the Hudson Valley

Issue 79 · Made in America · July 1, 2013

Founded in Brooklyn in 2009 by husband/wife team Jason Roskey and Maggie Goudsmit, Fern Handcrafted Furniture moved to the Hudson Valley region a couple of years ago. "Our Upstate New York location allows us access to some of the country’s finest hardwoods and to realize our goal of designing and making contemporary, timeless pieces using sustainable practices," Roskey says. "A chair made from FSC-certified wood doesn't mean much if it's not properly joined and of a form that cannot be appreciated for generations. Heirloom quality and form are the strongest attributes of sustainability."

To see the full line, go to Fern.

"My design style is stongly American; I like to let the nature of the material speak for itself. I'm more interested in a table that has a quiet aspect to it and can sit comfortably in a room with other Fern pieces."
