Troscan Design & Furnishings are a small, privately owned American manufacturer who proudly sources U.S. labour to create heirloom furniture with environmental integrity and enduring value. A husband-and-wife team, Deirdre and Bob view their work as an ongoing effort to bring authenticity to design and honesty to materials – each bringing individual strengths to the design process.
Whether it is a jagged steel line left by a torch welder or the lustre of hand-burnished lacquer, each Troscan piece demonstrates the intimate relationship between designing and making. Elemental materials such as wood, stone, steel, and bronze and clay are carefully honed to reveal their innate strengths and natural beauty. Bob and Deirdre also seek inspiration outside their field—often partnering with rural makers or incorporating innovations from fields such as boat building and fine arts.
Troscan incorporates materials into a manufacturing process where little goes to waste. In addition, they are on a constant search for sustainable sources. Harvesting urban and forestry windfall, for example, not only re-purposes otherwise wasted and discarded resources, but also allows them to offer rare and unique materials in their designs.
