Getting Gritty with Michael Robbins Studio in Upstate New York

August 28, 2013

Michael Robbins, a native upstate New Yorker who studied photography in NYC, builds his furniture from salvaged pieces from Dutch barns (though you’d never guess it). Robbins, who debuted his line in fall of last year, learned woodworking during his time on a trails crew in the Adirondack Mountains, where he picked up the skill from a local–”my work draws from simplicity, utility, and a joy of form,” he says. The joy for Robbins began with stools and chairs; he’s since expanded into lighting and large-scale dining tables. Available through Michael Robbins Studio at the Culture + Commerce Project in Hudson.
