We love discovering new local makers, which is why it was so exciting to visit the homes at Hudson Woods in the Hudson River Valley one weekend this summer.
These sustainable vacation homes for New Yorkers have plenty of cool features – like optional tree houses – but what really caught our eye was all of the local furniture makers + craftsmen involved in the project.
Meet 5 favorite Hudson Valley makers that we were introduced to at Hudson Woods in Kerhonkson!
That amazing desk chair is by Michael Robbins, a local designer and 7th generation native of Upstate New York. He takes his inspiration from the local landscape.
How cool to have a swing in your living room? It’s made by Dzeirlenga, a self-described “lady woodworking shindig” that mills local fallen trees in the Hudson Valley.
The dining table is by Sawkille Co, a small handmade furniture studio in the Hudson Valley that was founded by a sculptor.
Sam Moyer crafted this really nice entryway console at his Hudson studio. He specializes in reclaimed rare woods.
Of course we recognized that Smeg refrigerator right away! The light fixture is made by Workstead, which is actually a collective from Brooklyn, but they keep a studio in the Hudson Valley. Can you blame them? We love it up there.
You can find goods designed + produced by local artists + makers at 17 west elm stores, with even more local assortments to come!
