Brian Hubel

  • I believe a piece of furniture should stand on its own. It should be graceful, yet strong, something you never tire of viewing.
    The satisfaction of designing and creating furniture by hand is the driving force behind my work. Much of my inspiration comes from the wood itself. Collecting wood simply for its natural beauty is the start of many of my pieces. I appreciate my ability to transform a raw natural resource into a functional and timeless piece of art. It’s one way of leaving my mark in this world.

    Starting with a mental image and rough sketch, the process begins. Throughout construction, the design evolves in order to maximize form and function. Detailed plans are simply too confining for this approach. There is always solid, tight construction with traditional joinery that is often exposed as a design element. The lines of my designs are clean and concise, and often reflect Asian design and architectural elements.
  • Colorado native Brian Hubel has had a lifelong appreciation for nature and its beauty. He began his love of woodworking over 20 years ago and his desire to design and create in wood grew throughout college. Although he graduated with degrees in Chemistry and Biology, Brian was devoted to making woodworking his profession and started his own business in 1998.
