The Jones Falls Furniture Collection was created with the goal of putting people back to work while creating beautiful, timeless furniture pieces that are reduced to their most basic elements. By consistently using a combination of highest quality hardwood and aluminum, we seek to achieve the ultimate visual simplicity while ensuring structural stability.
All of our pieces are designed to be fabricated with minimum waste. Our materials are produced or harvested within a 500-mile radius of our production shops in Maryland and Michigan.
The Jones Falls is a river that runs through Baltimore, and has played an important role in the industrial history of that city. Today, it remains an important, somewhat hidden, natural feature that is at the origins of the city’s north-south transportation routes.
One of Baltimore’s earliest highways, the Jones Falls Expressway (JFX), also known as Interstate 83, was conceived in 1943 as a collaboration between Baltimore city officials and Robert Moses, New York’s master planner. The highway’s route was extremely disruptive to Baltimore’s “organic” settlements along the Falls, dividing communities and eroding industry, all for the facilitation of automotive transit.
We hope to recover a small part of the jobs lost as well as the natural beauty and environmental health of the valley.
