"Handmade custom furniture and home decor made with reclaimed materials."
Meisch Made is a Los Angeles based furniture company designing and handcrafting pieces to last for generations. We focus on custom furniture made with as much recycled material, salvaged slabs, or reclaimed lumber as possible. When we can't find salvaged material, we source sustainably harvested lumber from local suppliers. By working with responsible mills and local arborists that specialize in salvaging diseased or felled trees, we can offer our clients the most characteristic wood with the least environmental impact. Ranging from one-of-kind live edge slabs, desks, coffee tables, cabinetry and home decor, Meisch Made offers a wide variety of high quality home furnishings. Every piece is made by hand with quality in mind, no exceptions.
Founded by designer and California native Riley Meisch, each piece is thoughtfully inspired by older tradition, but designed in a contemporary aesthetic and passionately handcrafted. Riley's fascination with woodworking developed from an early age while helping his father build custom homes in the small town of Ojai, CA. With the exception of some basic carpentry skills, Riley is entirely self-taught in woodworking.
"I was always completely obsessed with design and creation. Everything in our lives was designed by someone; someone thoughtful enough to solve our everyday problems and shape our world with their own unique ideas and style. With furniture, I explore the balance of form and function, designing pieces that solve problems, look beautiful, and age gracefully. I hope to change what people think of as "quality" and lead them into supporting more craftsmen and women that make things by hand with passion. Because that’s what makes a good product; the love and passion of creation.” -Riley
