New Raugh Furniture

I first started to develop Raugh as a mindset or an ideology in 1998 as an attempt to embrace human imperfection (or “human nature”) rather than reform it. I made a manifesto of sorts called “Rules of Raugh” – one of the dictates in it is that that  “All materials ultimately deteriorate and show signs of wear.  It is therefore important to create designs that will look better after years of distress.” The laminated and carved plywood is intended to age and look even better with years of wear and distress.
