The man behind Appalachian Joinery, Chester Shuey, lives and works in Asheville, North Carolina, where he makes furniture that pairs the principles of modern design with building techniques nurtured for centuries in the Appalachian Mountains. Whether a small stool or a large bed frame, an original design or a reproduction, each piece is crafted of locally salvaged hardwood, rich in history, with a hand-rubbed oil finish that enhances the inherent beauty of the natural material. "Should all furniture last generations? I think so," Shuey says. Visit Appalachian Joinery now.
