Furniture is an important part of the language and expression of a particular place and time. On Fogo Island, our people have made a living from the sea for four hundred years. These intimate and careful encounters with the North Atlantic have created a culture that is highly determined, resourceful and pragmatic - and sometimes quirky and irreverent too. Our furniture embodies these cultural traits and has evolved into one of the most distinctive bodies of regional furniture in North America.
The Shop’s collection of furnishings reflects Fogo Island’s continuing adaptation to modernity. Professional design has come together with centuries of knowledge in boat building and furniture making to create contemporary objects that carry the past while fortifying our future. We hope you enjoy your pieces as much as we’ve enjoyed making them.
