This gorgeous table has transformed our dining room. From the subtle details to the bright, warm wood, this is perfect for eating, working, and talking. We searched for months for a table that would meet all our needs (simple design, indestructible finish, sturdy construction) and are absolutely thrilled to have finally found Studio Moe's work of art.

Beautiful table- no disappointment here, and the delivery folks were great, too. The workmanship is lovely, and it was as described and every bit as pretty as in the photos in Etsy. Andrew cheerfully customized the height of the table, and I am really happy with the whole experience.
Paring things down
As a child I watched my father work with wood. He made furniture in our garage, and in the countryside of southern Maryland I watched him build a post and beam bunk house with hand-hewn timbers from a collapsed old tobacco barn. It had an effect. The year after I graduated from college I worked as an apprentice for a furnituremaker in Cambridge, Massachusetts and soon thereafter I enrolled full-time in the Massachusetts College of Art, where I studied 3-D design for two years, focusing on sculpture and furnituremaking.
In the years that followed, design dovetailed into dance as I devoted myself to studying, teaching, and performing Argentine Tango throughout the US. In 2003 I opened Studiomoe in New York City with the intention of making simple, well crafted furniture. I looked to Scandinavian and Japanese furniture for inspiration. My great grandfather was a woodworker who emigrated from Norway in the early 1900's and built wooden creameries in southern Minnesota. I have one of his hand planes in my shop.
In 2009, in tribute to my great grandfather and the rich tradition of Scandinavian design, I launched my Oslo line at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC, and received tremendous reviews from Dwell, Metropolis, Interior Design, and a host of other design publications. In 2012 the shop moved to Portland, Oregon. Since the relocation, my wife Amanda has infused the studio with her expertise and vision, as Creative Business Director. We currently operate out of ADX, a creative workspace in Southeast Portland.
