About Brian Boggs Chairmakers
Brian and Melanie Boggs at their shop in Asheville, NC
Headquartered in Biltmore Village, just minutes from downtown Asheville, NC, Brian Boggs Chairmakers represents a new business vision that fosters the highest levels of design, craftsmanship and sustainability in handmade wooden furniture. Our model integrates four key components: materials, workspace, training and visibility, creating opportunities for landowners, loggers, sawyers and craftspeople to work collaboratively to meet our clients’ needs through a mutually supportive and sustainable partnership.
For landowners, loggers and sawyers who practice sustainable forestry, we ensure that their efforts stimulate the regional economy. For craftspeople, we offer an infrastructure that allows woodworkers to focus on their passion. For our clients, we offer the chance to own timeless, handcrafted furniture produced in a reliable and sustainable manner.
For all of us, this venture presents a new way of looking at the items we live with. Through an awareness of the labor and materials that go into each piece, we hold our values at the heart of our philosophy and practice.
