Design Consulting Fabrication
Creative environments for work or play
I realize that as a designer or architect you work with shops that you have built relationships with over the years, but occasionally those shops are too booked and cannot accomodate your orders. Sometimes the job is too small for a large shop to be interested in. And sometimes you need a piece of heirloom quality furniture, made by hand , with the attention to detail and the quality of materials worthy of your design vision and your clients discerning taste. I hope you will consider me when these occasions arise.
My one-woman company, Grainlab, is a fabrication studio specializing in the design and production of furniture for architects and designers. I can build from your photos, plans, C.A.D., or drawings. I can also help you take a design from concept to fabrication, collaborating with you on construction challenges and details, or fabricating prototypes for production.
I work outside of the realm of the larger fabrication shops, focusing on one-off or limited production furniture. I provide excellent personal service, reasonable lead times and on time delivery.
My past clients include Gull Industries, Bandol Bistro, and numerous residences in Seattle. I show my work in the Northwest Gallery of Fine Woodworking, Square Room Gallery, Greener Lifestyles, and Artwood in Bellingham, among other galleries. Some of the firms I work with are Susan Okamoto Interior Design, Hoshide/Williams Architects, N/B Design Group and Snyder/Hartung/Kane/Strauss Architects.
I offer you a commitment to excellence, good communication, pleasure in the process, and a beautiful end product.
I have a workshop shop in Seattle. Please come by and visit. It’s alot of fun to see the work in progress and go through a stack of beautiful woods. The passion and tradition of this craft stays alive in the work we do.
I would like an opportunity to show you my portfolio and some of my work. Please call me to set up an appointment: 206-200-4377.
