Helvey Design Studio has created a handmade collection of furniture designed and built to last a lifetime. Each piece is handcrafted in San Diego, California, using only sustainable, responsibly sourced goods.
The FIRST Collection was designed with the principals of simplicity, minimalism and quality craftsmanship. By concentrating on the materials and function of each piece, we were able to strip out unnecessary features, ornamentation or embellishments. The two woods that were chosen are naturally felled Northern California Black Oak and Sustainably Harvested, FSC certified Black Walnut from South Carolina. All steel is 99% recycled content and made in America. You have the choice of a durable powder coated finish in satin black or bone china white. Each piece is crafted by hand, with attention to detail and a focus on craftsmanship. These pieces are made to be cherished and loved.

Domestic shipping is included for every item! The FIRST Collection is designed for flat pack shipping using as little material as possible, but still ensuring that your package will arrive safely.
For international backers: shipping is only available for the KEYCHAIN, BOTTLE OPENER and TUBE LAMP at this time and will impose a small charge and a later arrival date.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Through a series of prototypes, we've been able to work out the kinks for this collection, but we have also learned that the unexpected may occur. To address this, we have given ourselves enough time to make each piece with the quality and care it deserves.
Another challenge that we have come across is trying to help the consumer realize that they CAN purchase quality, handmade, sustainable furniture at a price they would pay for a similar item made overseas.
