When a person or couple sets out to buy pieces of furniture for their new home, many of them might go down the route of getting affordable, temporary items, but more often than not people desire things that will last not only a lifetime, but their children's lifetime as well; enter Gitane Workshop. Gitane Workshop creates stunning modern furniture with a mid-century twist to ensure a loving longevity.

Founded by architect-turned-furniture designer Scott Friedman, the Gitane Workshop is his way of providing "heirloom quality furniture of distinctive authenticity and exceptional craftsmanship," as he puts it. With this neo-retro aesthetic, Gitane Workshop's creations are definitely unique.

From sculptural, avant-garde designs in Gitane Workshop's Ton Sai collection to sturdy, classic pieces in their Coban collection, this design studio seems to offer it just about everything.
