Miles & May furniture works was founded in 1996 with the belief that great design and craftsmanship aren’t imports or things from the past. We create furniture that is fundamentally sustainable: pieces of enduring quality that can be passed down to the next generation. We hope you enjoy using our furniture as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
We believe that honest design articulated through unique material and impeccable craftsmanship will withstand the test of time. We design our furniture to showcase the history and character of each hand-selected piece of wood, rather than force-fitting the material into a specific design. Every item is also created by hand using both traditional methods and modern techniques. The final result is exceptional furniture that’s made to last a lifetime.
Nearly 90 percent of our wood is reclaimed, recycled, or from local non-commercial sources. This dedication runs deeper than environmental consciousness. Its about sourcing the right material for the right design, and most of our material can't be bought at a lumber yard. We hand select virtually every timber we use and have it milled and dried to our specifications. Our design process stays true to each piece of wood so that we may share with you what we find special in it. This process is time consuming, often spanning years but the end result is well worth the wait: material and form that are meant to be together.
