City: San Francisco, California
The first time we met Jared was one afternoon when we were scoping a location for our Shine event. Jared walked out of his wood shop, and with a big smile and excitement, told us stories of some of the furniture pieces in his gallery. Jared is not your ordinary wood maker. In fact, Jared is an artist, an innovator and a man with a vision. Known for having created the famous California tables, Jared builds pieces for the next four generations. He may be the next Eames, but for now we know him as the haute couturier of wood, the creator of the famous California table series an involved mentor and the host with the most.
