Taylor Donsker Design

Bespoke wood furnishings inspired by ancient Japanese temples

California modernism and craftsmanship adorns the rugged workshop walls and floors of woodworker Taylor Donsker. The self-taught craftsman builds bespoke furnishings from slabs of rich Northern California walnut (also known as Claro walnut) and blackened steel according to a strict philosophy, “Every material has a grain, a strength and a weakness, an origin and an end.


Taking inspiration from ancient-timber-built Japanese temples, Taylor salvages both diseased and felled trees to create his line of tables, chairs, desks and cabinets. Special attention is paid to each product’s functionality and structural integrity, where these hefty objects appear almost as if they’re weightless and floating.
