Besides the obvious benefits to our local economy, employing home grown talent has other far deeper advantages. By keeping our design studio and woodworking shop under the same roof, we utilize an entirely holistic and collaborative approach to solving design problems. Our woodworkers have a strong relationship with the designers who lean so heavily on their expertise. We prototype and develop new ideas in house, together. The conversations often go in both directions and the learning is mutual. This feedback loop is used to constantly reinvigorate the whole design process, improving our products one project at a time.
In a world where major design considerations are barely even considered, Anthill has chosen the opposite path. Careful scrutiny of even the smallest details, combined with an imaginative curiosity, commits Anthill to a process that produces pleasing, innovative solutions to everyday problem.
We believe in the power of thoughtful design and believe that when partnered with quality craftsmanship, it can create lasting expressions of sublime beauty and usefulness. And that is what we try to achieve everyday - environments and objects that are unique, personal, and make life that much more pleasurable.
As more and more products become increasingly disposable and temporary, more and more people have forgotten the true worth of a well made object. Quality is rewarding in many ways – such as how a piece looks, how it functions, and most importantly, how it survives. We at Anthill don’t want to see all our hard work go into the landfill, and we’re betting neither do you. By using strong, environmentally sustainable materials, thoughtful design, and quality workmanship, we strive to have both our built-in and freestanding furniture pieces last your lifetime – and longer. This allows us to go beyond industry norms and offer a limited lifetime warranty on all of our products. With all these assurances, the question is not whether you can afford to use Anthill, but can you afford not to?
