Rustic Refined. Rustic Redefined.


Designed by Nature


Created by artists Robert Batey and Dana Cohen


Each one-of-a-kind piece is hand crafted from native materials gathered here in the Smoky Mountains, along with traditional birch bark and other found materials.


Our design process is simple: nothing is predetermined. We start with a pile of branches and twigs and then work out a pattern, an idea. It’s very much an intuitive, sculptural approach.


Sometimes we start with inspiration from a historic piece, combining our own style and native materials to create a unique design. Every piece is selected for its distinctive character, and its contribution to the overall design.


Inspired by History


Our "elegant rustic" designs are inspired by the Great Camps of the Adirondack Mountains, first popularized during the late 1800s.


The original Great Camps were homes for the wealthy, and fulfilled their desire to be at one with nature. Eventually, the owners brought along all the amenities from civilization, and incorporated them into the rustic setting.


As the style developed, some makers would incorporate original oil paintings into their pieces.

Being a photographer, it seemed only natural to combine my original nature photographs with some of our designs for a unique blending of rustic and fine art.
