FURNISHINGS WITH A STORY

 

THE PROJECT:


Bench & Co. is a project that explores the stories and skills behind locally handcrafted furniture. It brings people together around workbenches to share personal processes, inspirations, and creations. In essence, it is a bench and good company.

Join me as I search to learn more about the finely crafted pieces made in our own backyards, and the people who have dedicated their lives to perfecting them.

 

THE PERSON:


My name is Morgan and I'm an interior designer based in Vancouver, BC. Raised in a rural community and later working in NYC, I've always had an appreciation for craftsmanship, community and stories.

When I moved to Vancouver a few years ago, I visited a design show and was in awe of one particular coffee table. The maker was kind enough to invite me to his shop to show me how it was made. The awe continued.
