"Creation does not come out of simply what your born with. That must be united with your courage, both of which cause anxiety, but also great joy." - Rollo May

 

 

Hand-picked and sustainably harvested lumber is crafted into modern, heirloom quality studio furniture at SouleWork, Artisan Furniture. Each piece is designed and crafted by Matthew Soule, owner & operator at our Rhode Island design studio. A fifth generation woodworker, Matthew’s ancestral values of quality materials, attention to detail, and precision joinery guide his work. His professional background in existential philosophy, spiritual direction, and meditation undergird and influence his design process. Each piece endeavors to be as functional as it is beautiful. 

Environmental sustainability is important to us at SouleWork. All of our lumber comes from sustainably harvested forests and mills and all of our furniture is of heirloom-quality with an enduring design to ensure its long life and good health. Scrap pieces of wood are reclaimed and incorporated into smaller projects whenever possible or donated to various local vendors. mmmmmmmmmmmm SouleWork also does custom furniture and cabinetry commissions.
