Jay Miron designs and builds bespoke furniture in his Vancouver studio. He describes his furniture as, “contemporary, with a strong mid-century modern influence.” Others in the furniture and design industry often referred to it as, “functional art.”
After a seventeen-year career as a professional BMX Freestyle rider that saw him win six world championship titles, Jay decided to leave the bicycle industry and focus his efforts on furniture design.
He spent two years training under master craftsman Robert Van Norman at his world renowned Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinet Making, before returning to Vancouver and enrolling in the interior design program at Vancouver Community College.
In 2014 Jay set up shop and began bringing his ideas to life. It wasn’t long before he signed an exclusive deal with international design agency SwitzerCultCreative. Jay’s work can be viewed locally at their Kitsilano showroom in Vancouver.
