Small Batch Furniture™
At Maynard Studios each piece of our furniture is made in small batches, hand worked and hand-forged. The metal has been placed in the fire of our forge and heated until red hot. It is then hammered by one of our blacksmiths to give each piece its signature texture. Every piece of furniture is a unique art object.
Our hands guarantee it.
