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?



new new breed


two friends one dream


It all started when...

In 1990 Leonardo Paradiso, an Italian master builder was breaking in his new hire, John Lindsay, then a nineteen year old college student. That week, Leonardo’s son, Alessandro left a promising job with one of Chicago’s best architectural firms to join the family business.  John Lindsay and Alessandro Paradiso became co-workers and fast friends.

For the next twenty years they maintained their friendship and mutual mentorship.  Alessandro gave John access to his vast design library, and John shared his woodworking facilities with Alessandro.  In 2010 John and Alessandro joined forces to become co-designers of a New Breed of furniture.
