If you really look around and investigate how most other furniture is made, you'll find a lot of phony boloney.
Trust us, the difference between solid wood construction and veneer is what separates the men from the boys.
Shouldn't you own furniture your grandchildren will fight for?
new new breed
two friends one dream
It all started when...
in 1990, an old Italian master builder was breaking in his new hire, a nineteen year old college student. In the same week, Leonardo’s son left a promising job with one of Chicago’s best architectural firms 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 fed a hungry John his vast design library. Pursuing a life as a fine woodworker, John shared his developing woodworking facilities where Alex continued his grandfather’s and father’s dedication to craft, when in 2010, they joined forces to become co-designers of a new breed of furniture.
