The Mill House collection reaches back to our roots and highlights the old techniques utilized during the early days of American furniture making. During those times craftsman were limited to solid lumbers and the materials they had, and they used techniques that were functional and visible to construct the furniture they built. The furniture itself was built with a form-follows-function perspective which resulted in pieces that were inherently well made. Due to the use of those varying resources and the purposes for each piece, this led to a sort of unintended eclectic style which, ironically, is popular today.
The Modern Forge collection brings a modern-meets-rustic vibe perfect for everything from casual urban settings to updated farmhouse to craftsman décor. Modern Forge makes good use of clean lines and mixed media by blending sand-blasted solid Rustic Poplar with functional metal details throughout the collection. This collection represents a seamless progression in the evolution of casual modern styling using natural materials.

As the world around us grows increasingly synthetic, we have this desire to connect with something real. We long for retreat. Instead of rushing to the next appointment, to simply pass along the trail and enjoy what it has to offer. At Kincaid we feel this connection too. To not only be inspired by our favorite trails, but to capture their natural character. In an increasingly artificial world, why not come home to something authentic, peaceful, and timeless.
Inspired by a decades old relationship with solid wood, the Traverse collection is our way of letting the craft speak for itself. It begins with Ambrosia Maple which includes beautiful natural character markings that highlight the solid wood nature of the collection. We allow the natural worm holes and their characteristic markings to show through alongside the various grain patterns of the maple. From there the design determined that the joinery that is used in crafting solid wood furniture itself should be the focus. Details such as the box joint where the two solid wood surfaces are connected or more discretely, the base which features an open end tenon are left in plain view. It doesn't take a carpenter to appreciate the workmanship in this clever merging of time honored craftsmanship and modern style.
The Tuscano collection has deep roots. In fact, the design of Tuscano started as our in-house designer stood admiring an antique kitchen island that had been originally built in Italy in the late 18th century. The key element that caught our eye was the simple, supportive corbel that finished off the top of each post. That shape became the became the sketch that this entire European inspired collection would be built from.
