Wickham Solid Wood Studio makes furniture using responsibly-sourced Hudson Valley hardwoods.
Founded on the premise that we have extraordinary resources “in our own back yard,” Wickham Solid Wood Studio takes delight in the use of black walnut, white oak, black cherry, white ash, red elm and other local species. Jessica Wickham’s carefully crafted designs combine natural forms with modernist elements — and the results are unique, timeless pieces of furniture.
Dedicated to sustainable, artisanal use of our natural resources. we have been sourcing “dead and down” logs from Hudson Valley landscapers since 2004 and custom milling them at our bandsaw mill in Bullville, NY. Carefully stacked flitches are air-dried for approximately two years followed by kiln drying to ensure workability for fine furniture. We maintain an inventory of over 10,000 board feet of natural edge slabs and encourage clients to visit our studio/workshop on Main Street in Beacon, NY, to select material.
Jessica Wickham is a native New Yorker who studied cultural anthropology at the University of Michigan, worked on Wall Street and followed a path that led to Japan, where she lived for 5 years and was deeply inspired by traditions of fine craft. Wickham Solid Wood Studio is a product of her passion for solid wood, meticulous craftsmanship and love of all things locavore.
