Recently spotted: Bedroom furniture by Alice Tacheny Design, a small workshop committed to using quality domestic hardwoods, natural finishes, and responsible manufacturing practices.

Originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, Tacheny learned her craft during a post-college apprenticeship at a wood shop in Chicago, where she focused on joinery technique and small-scale production. Today, her company is based in the Bay Area and her designs can be found at Erica Tanov in Larkspur, California, and Peace Industry in San Francisco, as well as online at 2Modern and YLiving. Note: Most pieces are made to order and require four to twelve weeks for delivery.
