wood surfaces: explored & expanded
A few cuts, a few passes, a few more cuts, and with some rough hands a wood surface is prepared. Renowned as undoubtedly useful in its most basic form, wood has remained almost unchanged in its applications. Yet, with modern advances in design techniques and material experimentation, wood’s traditional cut and dry form is finally being explored & expanded. Read More
function over form
Designing furniture for the workspace is an ever-evolving challenge. Today people strive to find pieces that fit an endless string of requirements. With products having such a high bar to reach it’s crucial for designers to recognize when to push the boundaries of a design’s function and when it’s time to stop adding. Click to read more.

our 2015 photo contest winner
This beautiful dining table was a collaborative effort between Meyer Wells and the client. Working with a very rough slab of Spalted Maple chosen by the client, our team was able to preserve the sculptural quality of the wood in the finished piece. Interior Designer, Kathleen Glossa, chose to work with Meyer Wells because she loves our story and knew her client's would be able to find exactly what they were looking for with our inventory and quality craftsmanship.
Project: private residence dining table
Designer: Kathleen Glossa Interiors
Product: live edge spalted maple dining table with clear low VOC waterborne topcoat, steel plate base with blackened finish.

shop expansion - summer 2014
Making the move of our production shop to Sumner, we are filled with mixed emotions as we say goodbye to our first home and welcome the exciting change our company will undergo. With change there are always questions and we want to ensure that all our clients and friends are aware of what to expect so there is no confusion:
*First of all, we are not closing our doors. If anything, this move is allowing us to grow, to take on larger projects and larger production volumes.
*Secondly, our office with sales, marketing and accounting will remain in Seattle. It's important for us to stay closely connected to our Seattle clients.
*Finally, while our slabs will no longer be just a walk away, we promise to make every effort to keep you in the loop with the selection process. This includes occasional trips to Sumner, samples slabs in our Seattle office and an eventual online slab inventory.

“People who buy furniture here are adventurers,” says Mr. Meyer. “They see the tree and get to be part of the process. They have to have an adventurous spirit, they have to be patient, and they have to trust. There’s an element of risk.”- Seth Meyer
