Leeward furniture is built and designed by us, John and Gina. John is the woodworker and Gina is all the rest. We’re a couple of new parents starting a new company trying to find the balance between being responsible adults, and having as much fun as possible. Our goal, besides keeping our daughter Miki alive, is to create objects and spaces that make people happy. To do that, we work out of our studio space in an old textile factory building here in Kensington, Philadelphia . It’s not much, but it’s more than enough to live our dream, or at least this chapter of it.



Furniture Leeward makes original small batch furniture and homeware.  We believe in simple honest joinery and thoughtful design. Our inspiration is everywhere, but mostly in nature, textiles, and traditional Japanese and Shaker woodworking. We take commissions for custom work and most pieces on this site can be built again in alternate dimensions and/or wood species. Just send us an email, we'd love to hear from you!

Custom Interiors / We love the challenge of custom interior work because we believe that spaces should reflect the people who inhabit them and at the same time be utilized to their utmost potential. Given that we are a small, newly started company we are limiting ourselves to smaller projects (nothing bigger than a kitchen) so that we can give as much attention and care as necessary without overloading our shop's capacity.  If any of this sounds good to you, let's collaborate on making that space you've been dreaming about into a reality!
