are husband and wife. Jim earned an advanced degree in furniture design and spent his career designing furniture for manufacturers before deciding to open his own shop. When he and Nance moved to Maine in 1987, they created a quintessential Yankee workshop on five acres, where an 18th-Century barn serves as the workshop and the adjacent farmhouse as the showroom.
The Browns focus on early American furniture design, building custom furniture from premium local hardwoods and using traditional finishing methods. They welcome guests to tour the workshop and visit the showroom.
