I am formally educated in the art of fine woodwork and custom furniture makeing. I hand craft Poul Jensen Selig-inspired Z couches, Z chairs and Z love seats. I have made several improvements and modifications from the original Poul Jensen Selig Z Chairs. We use only select Black Walnut heart wood for the frames. Each piece of black walnut is chosen for its color and grain quality. The chairs are more works of art than factory-assembled furniture; they are individually-produced. All joints use traditional single or double mortis and tenon joinery, we use only formaldehyde-free glue. The arm rest now has a hand carved relief. Its smooth stippled surface is a mark of craftsmanship and artistry. The remarkably comfortable original seat geometry remains. A love seat is finally available.

We make eco friendly cabinets and furniture in Gainesville florida using only FSC certified domestic formaldehyde free substrates and plywood. The cost of using made in the USA wood is negligible over the longterm. It is easy for us to quantify the value even as the consumer in using good materials vs. the garbage Ikea uses. I have installed and assembled Ikea cabinets and they are not quality. They use the best Blum hardware because without it they would be crap.
