Handcrafted American Furniture

photo of Handcrafted Custom Parquetry SideboardBrian Reid is a fine furniture maker who builds one-of-a-kind, artisanal furniture in the American studio tradition of Sam Maloof or Jere Osgood.

 

Each heirloom quality piece created by using traditional dovetail joinery–whether it is a hall table, console or custom cabinet–is made at the highest level of craftsmanship. Signature features of Reid's work include Asian or Chinese joinery, intricate hand-pierced or stack-cut, inlaid/parquetry designs. The finishes of all furniture are hand-rubbed with natural oil.
