Hudson Workshop: Heirloom Wood Furniture from a Hungarian Craftsman

November 18, 2016

Hungarian-born craftsman András Gipp comes from four generations of makers: His father and grandfather “craft[ed] everything from beds to bowls with their hands.” Now Gipp continues the tradition in upstate New York, where he has launched Hudson Workshop, a line of furniture made from sustainable, local hardwoods. Here’s a look at the collection.

Above: Gipp “fell in love with wood in [Hungary’s] Bakony Forest where he ran wild as a child, marveling at the warmth of this living medium.” His signature design is the Hudson High Chair, available in maple, black walnut, birch, and ash with a leather and brass strap. The chair does not have a tray and instead “pulls right up to the table, so your child can join in the family meal from day one.”

These handcrafted pieces are designed to “persevere through generations.” For more heirloom-worthy craft furniture, see our posts:
