Wood furniture is both sturdy and long lasting, unlike desks made of spun sugar and bed frames made of mashed potatoes. Avoid gravy-stained pajamas with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $200 toward custom hardwood creations from Hardwood Artisans. This Groupon is valid at the locations in Alexandria, Fairfax, Rockville, and Woodbridge.
Hardwood Artisans' crew of local craftspeople finesses former trees into more than 800 items of handmade home furnishings using traditional joinery techniques. A 24"x35" chamfered wall mirror sports reflective beveled glass ($335–$385), and an armless Hampton short side chair ($635–$740) kicks its legs in a lively ode to Riverdance. Shoppers can pick up a 34”x34” game table, hewn from cherry or maple ($1,120) to elevate Parcheesi boards off the floor or a red oak or birch Rhianna twin bed ($1,380) to provide physical and moral support for mattresses.
