The first collection we released was Collection Skye, a line of beautiful, buxom armchairs inspired by Bruce Andrews’ Scottish roots.
Why make a commitment to fine furniture making? Our CEO Bruce Andrews answers this question for readers of the Bruce Andrews Design journal: “I wanted to concentrate my focus on fine furniture making because there are not many companies in the United States producing furniture the right way anymore—the benchmark way.” He adds that there’s another element to making fine furniture that is more emotional than practical: “Nothing reminds you of family more than the beauty of an item you remember from when you were a child—one that makes you want to have the piece and cherish it.”
It is helping people source furniture with this level of emotional connection that he had in mind when he founded Bruce Andrews Design and began building the brand with the first release, Collection Skye. “It harkened back to my grandparent’s castle in Scotland, and I intend the Highland chair and the Anne chair, our first two products, will be future heirlooms that will inspire thoughts of family connections for others, just like the dining room table has always done for me.”
