We were recently asked if we would build a special birdhouse for Habitat for Humanity of Maine, 7 Rivers.  They have a gala event coming up on September 15th called The First Annual Habitat for Humanity Builds for the Birds. At the event there will be an auction of birdhouses crafted by local artists and craftspeople as well as several dozen that have been decorated by local youth.

Of course we said YES.

Bill and Saer returned on Friday from a week in Maryland, delivering and installing new furniture at St. Paul's School. This project began in our workshop back in December and with a due date of early August, we were able to schedule the work around other projects, filling in quiet times with this large order. It was a luxury we don't always have.

The order consisted of 25 study tables of various sizes, a conference table, 9 classroom tables, over 100 chairs, several occasional and cafe tables, end panels and...

We recently exhibited our library and academic furniture at the annual meeting of the American Library Association (ALA). It’s a very large meeting, with tens of thousands of visitors and the exhibit hall was packed with hundreds of exhibitors of all kinds; from publishers to archival data retrieval systems to “meet the author” events. And of course, library furniture.

Huston & Company was “the shop...

The academic furniture that we build is typically designed for public spaces, or private offices: student centers, admissions offices, libraries, administrative offices. It’s not very often that we are asked to build bedroom and living room furniture for our college and university clients.

We recently had an opportunity to build furnishings for some faculty areas at Princeton University, including a Visiting Professor’s apartment. The request was for furniture that is fresh and modern, unadorned and yet strong and substantial.

We were very pleased with the...

Our furniture was on display at each of the main venues of the festival, and Bill Huston was out and about enjoying the festival and meeting and greeting visitors. Many of those visitors were customers and friends of Huston & Company...

We hope you will take a few minutes to explore the three main sections...
