From Kiersten Hathcock: I am an ex-TV network marketing executive turned work-at-home mom turned self-taught furniture designer/builder. After leaving the corporate world in 2003 to spend more time with my kids (then 1 and 5), I rekindled a passion for woodworking during those rare moments when I had a minute to myself. I've always been inspired by my father, a self-taught carpenter and woodworker, who built most of our furniture when I was growing up in Ohio. Thirty-some years later, I have my own garage workshop where I design and produce modern/mid-century style kids' furniture. I am armed with a design eye, ten years of motherhood experience, a love for the smell of cut wood!

My pieces are inspired by the mid-century style and my own kids' wants and needs. I use eco- friendly birch plywood, non-toxic paints, water-based stains and low-voc, water-based finishes.
