  • Charles and Ray Eames
    Charles Eames (1907–1978) and his wife, Ray Eames (1912–1988) were American designers who made significant contributions to modern architecture and industrial design. These Cranbrook Academy of Art grads turned mid-century-modernist power couple are a case study in excellent design. Charles and Ray’s prolific partnership took shape with the molded plywood chair in the 1940s, but the duo also dabbled in film, exhibition installations, toys, and even a miniature train in Los Angeles’s Griffith Park.
  • Double Butter
    DoubleButter is the furniture design and manufacturing company of David Larabee and Dexter Thornton. We’re based in Denver, Colorado. Our products are made entirely in Denver and can be ordered directly from this site or by calling us (303-246-5759). We try to keep all pieces in our production line in stock and usually ship within 10 days of receiving an order. Shipping costs to any destination in the continental US will be displayed in the checkout process. Delivery in the Denver metro area is free. Call for shipping rates to other destinations. Pieces in our back catalog are made to order and will ship within 8-10 weeks. All pieces in our back catalog can be customized to meet specific needs. Call or e-mail us to talk through a custom order request. ABOUT THE MATERIALSOur production case goods and dining tables are available in either solid American black walnut or in forming plywood. The black walnut is always domestically sourced. The insides of our solid walnut pieces are finished with natural shellac and the outsides with a natural linseed oil and pine-resin varnish blend. The forming plywood is a typical spruce/pine/fir plywood with a classic-looking edge. The faces of the plywood are coated with a phenolic resin (like Richlite countertops) that is extremely water resistant. The plywood is normally used and re-used to make concrete forms, hence the name and the hardy coating. We get it from a forming-supply yard down the street from our shop. That company’s logo is printed on one side of each sheet and for standard orders we orient the sheets so the logo is on the inside or underside of the piece. However, on request we’ll flip it and face the logo out. Just call and ask. Our drawer boxes are made from BBB birch plywood, finished with natural shellac. The Roadrunner side chair in wood is available in either solid walnut finished with the oil and varnish blend or in medium density fiberboard (MDF) finished the same way. The aluminum pulls and steel legs of our case goods and our line of steel chairs, benches and stools are powder-coated, a zero-VOC process that is hard wearing and water resistant. We offer 4 standard colors: blue (RAL 6034), green (RAL 6019), cream (RAL 1013) and gray (RAL 7043). Our line of powder-coated steel seating is uphostered with either brown or black cowhide. The upholstery is affixed with velcro and is thus removable and interchangeable.

  • Arne Jacobsen
    Arne Jacobsen was born in 1902 and studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and became one of the country’s preeminent architects and designers in the mid-20th century. Though his early work was primarily private residents, he went on to design the SAS Royal Hotel—one of the city’s only skyscrapers—and the Danish National Bank, renowned for its hanging staircase in its lobby. Despite his public commissions, Jacobsen’s touch remained in the private realm as well, with lighting fixture designs for Danish manufacturer Louis Poulsen and furniture for Fritz Hansen. This includes his iconic Ant and Series 7 chairs made out of molded plywood, as well as the Swan and Egg chairs that were originally designed for the lobby of the SAS Royal Hotel.

  • Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby
    Internationally acclaimed designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby founded their eponymous studio in 1996 after graduating with Master’s degrees in Architecture from The Royal College of Art in London. From their first studio in Trellick Tower in London, they designed their first piece, the Loop Table, produced by Isokon in 1997. Much of Barber and Osgerby’s early work involved the folding and shaping of sheet material, influenced by the white card that they had used frequently in architectural model making. Plywood and perspex were used in the development of the Pilot Table, 1999, and Stencil Screen, 2000.

  • Casey Lurie
    A Southern California native, Casey Lurie honed his aesthetic in art programs at Cal Arts and Northwestern University, but it wasn’t until he met Teruo Kurosaki, founder of the influential Japanese furniture brand Idée, that his true purpose took root. Jumping at the chance to live and work in Tokyo, Lurie left behind his workshop in downtown Los Angeles—where he had started developing his first design, a line of plywood furniture—and spent three years soaking up the culture in Japan. His Lap table and Primo shelving system are directly influenced by his time there: simple wood and metal components interlock without tools or hardware for a streamlined version of a household staple. Now based in Chicago, Lurie plans to turn his focus to an expanded line of pieces with interlocking parts.
  • Jory Brigham Design
    Jory Brigham Design is not a company that senselessly creates for the sole purpose of creation, we area small group of artists, designers, dreamers and builders that work with a passion and a heart. Yeah, like so many others today, we are conscious of our surroundings, aware of the impact and footprint we are leaving; we use sustainable plywood, plantation Teak, FSC certified walnut and the like. But, what we love to do is take materials that others look down upon, materials that are normally overlooked, and bathe them in imagination and inspiration in order to pull out their full potential and draw on the organic and natural tendencies of these materials. Plywood, concrete, oriented strand board (OSB), and walnut are prevalent in the pieces we make. Ultimately, our desire is not only to create and design, but to build pieces that will endure for generations.

  • Smith & Fong
    Smith & Fong Company was founded in 1989 out of a truly passionate affinity for bamboo and with an overarching philosophy of sustainability. The firm began as a producer of bamboo accessories and was the first U.S. company to produce bamboo flooring for the North American market. Plyboo flooring, plywood and veneer is derived from Moso bamboo harvested from a forest that requires no irrigation or pesticides. Each year, 20 percent of the plantation’s bamboo—comprised of five-year-old poles only—is cut by hand, ensuring the forest canopy is not compromised to disrupt the ecosystem. The bamboo shoots that emerge in the winter as a food source for wildlife are not harvested or affected. Plyboo bamboo flooring and plywood products offer endless possibilities for architects and interior designers, whether the focus is on green building or cutting-edge design. This area includes all the information needed by architects, designers, and specifiers, as well as information directly relating to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system.

  • Kiersten Hathcock
    From Kiersten: I am an ex-TV network marketing executive turned work-at-home mom turned self-taught furniture designer/builder. After leaving the corporate world in 2003 to spend more time with my kids (then 1 and 5), I rekindled a passion for woodworking during those rare moments when I had a minute to myself. I've always been inspired by my father, a self-taught carpenter and woodworker, who built most of our furniture when I was growing up in Ohio. Thirty-some years later, I have my own garage workshop where I design and produce modern/mid-century style kids' furniture. I am armed with a design eye, ten years of motherhood experience, a love for the smell of cut wood! My pieces are inspired by the mid-century style and my own kids' wants and needs. I use eco- friendly birch plywood, non-toxic paints, water-based stains and low-voc, water-based finishes.
