Reed Bros. is a small northern California design studio manufacturing beautiful handmade and hand carved wooden furniture and accessories for fine homes, hotels, restaurants, and resorts. Each piece is made to order and carved to order by the skilled artists and crafts people at Reed Bros. The integration of whimsical design and superlative woodcarving distinguishes Reed Bros.’ unique furniture from all others.
Reed Bros. is owned and operated by Duncan Reed. He has been carving and creating his one-of-a-kind designs since 1975. A love of art, travel, and history has provided constant inspiration. Visiting with woodcarvers in Bali, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Ecuador, Africa, and Germany has broadened his carving style. Studying period cabinetry in Italy, Austria, France, England, Spain, and China has added sophistication to his designs and finishes.
13 Collections of Outdoor Furniture in Redwood and Sonoma Cypress.
Redwood has long been one of the most desirable woods for outdoor use. The natural tannins in redwood make it highly resistant to decay and insect damage. Left outdoors the furniture is durable, requires very little maintenance, and weathers beautifully.
As the furniture ages, cracks in the wood and variation in the wood’s color will develop. This weathering process is completely normal and adds to the charm of the pieces.
Reed Bros.’ hand carved Redwood furniture is available in a wide variety of designs. Ranging in style from Casual to Contemporary from Classical to Country, this furniture compliments any decor. Each piece is carved with the motif of choice. It is available in 5 finishes.
Reed Bros.’ Freestone, Barkwood, Washoe, & Milano Collections are made of Sonoma Cypress, a plentiful, indigenous wood that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The furniture is available in 6 finishes.
Unique Indoor Furniture
For centuries Pine has been used to make fine furniture. It is soft enough to allow delicate woodcarvings and strong enough to support the complicated joinery of quality cabinetry.
Reed Bros.’ pine furniture is like no other. Beautifully crafted bedroom sets, dining sets, armoires, entertainment centers, office furniture, chairs, mirrors, lighting etc. are exquisitely carved with unusual designs and then finished with one of 15 lovely lacquer pine finishes. These are heirloom quality pieces to be passed down through generations.
Reed Bros. also works in other fine woods suitable for interior furniture such as Cherry, Alder, Mahogany, & Cedar. All of these beautiful materials will support detailed carvings and enhance complex, multi-layered finishes.
Custom Furniture Designs
Reed Bros. works with design professionals around the world to create custom furniture for
their residential and commercial clients. Whether it may be a unique style of exterior furniture
or a complex entertainment or display cabinet, Reed Bros.’ custom pieces exhibit some of their most beautiful and unusual work.
Woodcarving is a highly skilled and physically demanding art. Chiseling flora and fauna from raw milled wood takes years of training. Reed Bros.’ furniture and accessories are all carved by hand at the Sebastopol studio. No two pieces are exactly alike.
Custom woodcarving is Reed Bros.’ trademark. Personalizing a fine piece of furniture with a totally unique woodcarving adds depth and character to the piece. Some of Reed Bros.’ finest work has been inspired by the original ideas of their clients.
