Well-made furniture, deep in the heart of TX

KKDW is the creation of Kathryn Kelly DeWitt (Kelly for short). Specializing in wood, Kelly designs and builds furniture that is thoughtfully constructed and engineered to last a lifetime and beyond.

This small business began in Austin, TX, and now rotates between Kelly's woodshop inside Austin and her 3-acre homestead just outside of the city. KKDW pieces focus on the natural character of the wood, paying special attention to bringing out the innate beauty of the grain with a variety of hand-rubbed natural oils and waxes. Influenced by traditional American design and Shaker furniture principles, Kelly is proud to build pieces that are beautiful, deep-rooted in cabinetmaking, and grow more perfect with everyday use.

Kelly also chronicles her processes and experiences on her blog, and she uses Tumblr as a catalog for ongoing inspiration. You can follow along with KKDW on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.
