The son of a master craftsman, designer and artist, Michael Padykula grew up
learning his family's business first hand,
which inevitably led him to open his own business in his early twenties to pursue his own passions.
After traveling the globe, volunteering and learning, he cultivated a love for architecture and design.
These ideas have melded with his love of nature, art and fine carpentry skills, forging a passion for creating artisan furniture, cabinetry, lighting and decor.
Continually inspired by his experiences and surroundings, his use of natural and fine materials combined with his
an eye for detail has made him a favorite collaborator with local interior designers and fellow artisans.
"I have always been and will be an artist and craftsman. It's in my blood...I get it from my dad...I thank him for that.
Ever since I can remember, I was drawing, painting and building.
Putting my own twist on things and trying to make them work and look better.
I can't control it...I just naturally do it."
"I'm truly grateful to be doing what I love and wouldn't be where I am today without
the love and support of my beautiful wife."
