New England Modern: New Designs from Studio Dunn

BY Meredith Swinehart

Asher Dunn started a community woodworking shop in Providence after finishing his studies in industrial design at RISD; with Studio Dunn, he's offering his own line of sustainably made, gracefully proportioned furniture and lighting.

Dunn uses only high-quality domestic timber and almost entirely recycled metals in his designs; aside from being sustainable, his pieces are hand-crafted, beautifully detailed, and American-made. To see the full line, go to Studio Dunn.
