Fern NYC was founded in Brooklyn, New York by Jason Roskey and Maggie Goudsmit in 2009. Currently, the company is based in New York’s Hudson Valley where they are trying to build on the region’s long furniture tradition, by creating bench-crafted studio furniture.
Their focus falls upon a modern interpretation of a timeless craft. They operate with an emphasis on customization for all clients. With access to some of the country’s finest hardwoods and a growing creative community, Hudson has allowed them to realize their goal of designing and making contemporary design using classic and sustainable practices, with a community focus.
“People should live with what makes them happy, and it’s not up to me – nor politicians, nor architects, nor designers – to dictate what people should live with.”
