Volk Furniture – Handcrafted Wood Furniture

Volk Furniture is a Brooklyn-based company dedicated to the design and fabrication of handcrafted, traditionally joined and finished wood furniture.

Each Volk design is unique and carefully considered to showcase the quality of the hand-selected materials. The beauty of the solid wood is enhanced by unexpected details: drawers lined with shirting fabric or ultrasuede; antique organ stops re-tasked as drawer pulls.

Owner, designer and builder, Brian Volk-Zimmerman (BFA, Rhode Island School of Design) is a painter and musician who began making furniture in 2006 in a Brooklyn Navy Yard shop. Volk Furniture is named to honor a family tradition that he discovered when he found a simply-constructed wooden side chair in the attic of the family farmhouse in which he grew up. The chair was one of many in the house made by a great-great-great uncle, John Volk, a furniture maker of local renown in the early 19th Century. The promise of Volk Furniture is that future generations will treasure the simplicity, care and craft embodied in each piece.
