Shake Up from Sawkille

Visit Their Site

The Rhinebeck-based furniture company Sawkille makes tables, seating, beds, and lamps, but these are works of art, not places to park your butt or your belongings. Owner Jonah Meyer says he sees himself as “a sculptor who happens to be running a woodshop.” His partner and fellow designer is Tara De Lisio. The aesthetic is “farmhouse modern,” meant to evoke the heritage of the Hudson Valley, including Shaker furniture, but updated and stylized. The company can customize most pieces, for individual buyers or for architects and designers working with clients. Rhinebeck-based Prandoni Fabrication & Design produces all the metal components in Sawkille’s furniture.
