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 countryâ€™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.”
