About Justin Strait
Adaptability Saves One from the Consequence of Plans...
Just as a piece of wood will not show its true character until it has been worked past its rough edges, so is it true about life. A few years of Engineering school led to a family business venture into renewable energy. A few years of 'professionally' playing with fire led me into consulting. A few years of too much time behind a computer screen led me to re-evaluate what makes me happy. And finally, I have been lucky enough to figure that out. My happiness comes from creating one of a kind furniture and art pieces for my clients to enjoy for a lifetime. My happiness comes from seeing the excitement in their eyes when I see and understand their vision, and when they see mine. I have built eclectic-modern-rustic-contemporary furniture professionally for 5 years. I commonly use reclaimed material as well as new steel and wood in varied formats to challenge my clients expectations, as well as my own. I have collaborated with architects and engineers, interior designers and custom home builders to find customized solutions to the exacting demands of unique situations and clientele. I have enjoyed every minute of it. I am always looking for new challenges, and would love to hear your ideas about creating a one of a kind piece for you to enjoy for the rest of your life. If you can dream it, I can build it. Looking forward to hearing from you.
