Founded in Brooklyn in 2009 by husband/wife team Jason Roskey and Maggie Goudsmit, Fern Handcrafted Furniture moved to the Hudson Valley region a couple of years ago. "Our Upstate New York location allows us access to some of the country’s finest hardwoods and to realize our goal of designing and making contemporary, timeless pieces using sustainable practices," Roskey says. "A chair made from FSC-certified wood doesn't mean much if it's not properly joined and of a form that cannot be appreciated for generations. Heirloom quality and form are the strongest attributes of sustainability." To see the full line, go to Fern . Above: The Harvest Dining Table is based on a classic Shaker design and is available in a variety of woods; $8,500. "My design style is stongly American; I like to let the nature of the material speak for itself. I'm more interested in a table that has a quiet aspect to it and can sit comfortably in a room with other Fern pieces." Above: The Spring Credenza is $7,500 and is available with leather or hardwood drawer pulls. Above L: The Swell Stool is available in bleached or oxided maple (among other woods). Above R: The Beatrice Stool features a brass and hardwood base and is available in a range of woods; $900. Above: The Founders Dining Table is a modern interpretation of the Sawbuck-style table. Above: Amoeba Cutting Boards start at $95. Above: The Sawyer Lounge Chair is $2,750 and is available in four different woods, including oxidized maple and claro walnut.      Vote for Your Favorites in Each Category Once a Day Remodelista Reader Finalists Remodelista Professional Finalists Gardenista Finalists Best Dining Space Best Dining Space Best Architectural Feature Best Office Space Best Office Space Best Indoor Garden Best Kitchen Space Best Kitchen Space Best Urban Garden Best Bath Space Best Bath Space Best Edible Garden Best Bedroom Space Best Bedroom Space Best Outdoor Room   Best Children’s Space
