fighting grandchildren

 

Heirloom quality means solid wood components made with artisanal joinery that can always be refinished and made brand new. Shouldn't you own furniture your grandchildren will fight for?

It all started when...

In 1990, Leonardo Paradiso was breaking in his new hire, a nineteen year old college student and construction worker.  At the same time, Leonardo’s son left a promising job with a successful Chicago architectural firm to join the family business.  That day John Lindsay and Alessandro Paradiso became fast friends and even quicker co-workers.  For the next twenty years they maintained a loose mentorship.  Alex offered John an on the run education in design and architecture, while John shared his woodworking facilities, having left the Paradiso employ to make it as a professional woodworker and cabinetmaker. There, Alex continued his grandfather’s tradition of Italian furniture making, while John experimented in wood tectonics. Finally in 2010 they joined forces to become co-designers of a new breed of furniture.
