Why I Do This
When we create our lives with intention, we surround ourselves with objects of beauty. Human beings belong to a world of imagination, and inspiration is essential to a healthy life. In the presence of an object of beauty, we experience the joy of its creation for ourselves.
At Brian Boggs Chairmakers, we see that joy in our gallery every day. Our mission is to give form to the inspiration we experience. It passes through our creative process and into our clients’ homes. We know that beautiful things, designed with integrity and built with mastery, transform all who experience their presence.
Our own inspiration comes from nature and early traditions, leaving our work uncontaminated by market trends and the conventions of industry. In this environment, our work is truly joyful, and excellence is always the result. We invite you to experience that inspiration for yourself.
