We don't necessarily think of fashion and woodworking as going hand-in-hand (unless we're watching Sex And The City circa the Aidan and Carrie days). But Rosie Kovacs and Hayes Shanes, the couple behind Brush Factory, credit their backgrounds in fashion and design as part of what sets their handmade furniture and home goods apart. But there's also plenty of substance behind their gorgeous editorial shots and designs. All their furniture is made from sustainably harvested wood using centuries-old techniques.
We spoke with Shanes to find out more about how Brush Factory got started, the craziest custom request they've ever gotten, and why Larry David would probably approve of their shop.
