Custom, handmade tables & furniture

Using locally-sourced and reclaimed materials, Groundwork builds-to-order handcrafted furniture. Their designs are modern and classic. In our modern world where container loads of furniture are reproduced and shipped around the globe, Groundwork prides itself on it’s local, hands-on, individual approach to furniture production.


Brian & Ernie

Ernie Sesskin and Brian Foster brought together a passion for architecture, antiques (of all genres) and interior design to create Groundwork in '93.
