I am pleased to announce that Kurtz + Atkins Design has been named a 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Design finalist. Voting will start September 15th! Stay tuned for more information on how to vote for us!
Bryan and I had a photo shoot with MK from Mary Kate McKenna Photography the other day. We had a great time. We loved working with her so much we decided to make her the official photographer of Kurtz + Atkins products.

I was contacted last month by Simpson Strong-Tie to take part in their DIY Done Right Campaign. I jumped at the opportunity, since we were in desperate need of additional organization in our workshop! We desperately needed a shipping and receiving area, so we could quickly process website orders. Simpson sent us two kits and $50 to Home Depot to create whatever we wanted! Bryan came up with a design that maximized every square inch of available space we had.The project took us an afternoon to complete. The kits are very easy to use!
The best part is one lucky follower will get a kit and $100 to Home Depot to get their DIY on! Who doesn’t love free?! Additionally, Simpson will be giving away $2000 worth of powertools and hardware!
One of our biggest sellers is our line of vintage lighting. Each one is hand made on our lathe, so no two are alike! We use vintage reproduction sockets, plugs and wiring.
All of our wood handles are made from locally sourced reclaimed lumber and hardwoods that were felled in storms.
Here is link to see what we currently have in stock!
I am updating this post because I have gotten over 400 emails about this post! 95% of the questions are about the custom reclaimed wood arm wrap in the photo! We are constantly making new stock, so check back frequently. Are you interested in designing a custom wrap to match your decor? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t have an IKEA Kivik? We have made armwraps for West Elm, Pottery Barn, Arhaus, Restoration Hardware, Caret and Barrel just to name a few!
Here are a few of our most recent arm wraps!
We have been very very busy building stock for our new website launch. We made this curly maple live edge desk with a purple heart butterfly joint. It is stunning!
Interested in adding this to your home office?
A friend asked if we could build a few of these honeycombs for her. It was a fun side project. We used eco-friendly plywood so there is no formaldehyde in the ply. We will be making more out of domestic hardwoods.
We recently made a console table for a client and had a lot of great feedback. Making it into a wine bar was the most common request. We love happy customers, so came up with a design to add wine storage for four bottles.
We had a client in Annapolis that was looking for a narrow entryway table. She like the 150 year old heart pine we use in a lot of projects. We opted for a welded steel base for a modern industrial look.
