Anthony Brozna started his studio in Brooklyn, NY, where he established himself as one of the few fine furniture makers using reclaimed and salvaged wood. Each custom piece is constructed at a high level of craft, built for durability, function and repeated enjoyment. His work employs a combination of traditional and Japanese joinery techniques, machining skills and handwork. Brozna takes care to incorporate the inherent qualities of each piece of wood into his furniture, allowing aspects such as color, grain and stability to guide the design process.
Brozna Woodworking is committed to building a product that is sustainable and environmentally responsible. The lumber used in Anthony Brozna's furniture comes from trees felled by sickness or storm, or salvaged from old buildings. These trees and old beams are custom-sawn to enhance grain patterns and stability.
Anthony Brozna's work has been featured in a number of regional, national and international publications including Dwell, Travel Channel, HDTV, and Fine Living Network.
