Katy Skelton’s line is produced exclusively in the United States, and special care is taken to ensure that the workers who fabricate the furniture are paid a fair wage and operate in safe and responsible manufacturing conditions. The company even conducts its own social audit to ascertain that the factories they work with have stringent social responsibility standards.

In addition to ethical production, Ms. Skelton also takes efficient use of space into consideration when designing her furniture. Her experience living in New York’s notoriously tiny apartments has informed pieces like the One Drink table, which has a 7″ top perfect for, as its name suggests, holding just one drink – perfect for a cramped space like an NYC home!
