Oakland, CA

At Jason Lees Design we design and build timeless modern furniture that is as functional and livable as it is beautiful. Each piece is handcrafted and built to last in our San Francisco Bay Area workshop using the highest quality materials. By combining the warmth of wood with interesting materials and understated details, we build character and individuality into our designs. With its timeless quality, our furniture is comfortable in a variety of settings from the modern to the eclectic to the traditional.

Our clients are local, national and international, and have included residences, commercial spaces, institutions, restaurants and hotels. Our work has been exhibited at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, and featured in numerous publications including The World of Interiors, Anthology Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, Interior Design and San Francisco Magazine.

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"It can vary depending on whether it’s a custom commission or a personal design, but in either case it’s a process of inspiration and problem solving."

Q&A

"That it fulfills their functional needs, and it’s beautiful."
-- Jason Lees Design
Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"My favorite material is wood - for it’s beauty, versatility, and variety. You can make a vast range of products out of it, from the humble to the rarefied. It’s environmentally sustainable (when forested properly), it can be reclaimed/recycled, and it’s biodegradable."
-- Jason Lees Design
Q&A

What motivates and inspires you?

"Externally, I’m more and more inspired by nature and the natural world. Internally, a lot of my motivation comes from the creative process – the journey from original idea to the realization of a finished product or project is very compelling, and quite addictive."
-- Jason Lees Design
Q&A

What makes a space special?

"It’s about feeling as much as aesthetics. I love spaces that have soul and character, that are unique and capture something about the inhabitants - that are interesting and comfortable, where you feel good and want to spend time."
-- Jason Lees Design
Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"Although my furniture is modern, my influences include a wide range of design styles and eras. My hope is to create products that have a timeless quality that feels familiar, yet is hard to place."
