Furniture designer Riley McFerrin started Hinterland Design in 2012 with the core mission to merge the wild beauty of the Pacific Northwest with a refined design aesthetic, and to bring the wilderness to an urban setting with a modest and modern edge. McFerrin starts with simple materials and processes, making each piece with a combination of machinery and hand tools. These tools, often simple in form and of single purpose, transform the wood from felled tree into a finished object.
On display at the Railway Street workshop and showroom,
Fall / Mill / Join / Finish: The Hand Tools of Woodcraft will explore the transformation of wood from raw material to designed piece.
