The Inspiration Behind Woodbridge Furniture’s New Collection

Designed to fit in seamlessly with traditional pieces, this collection strikes a perfect balance. When asked about the Woodbridge Furniture collection, Tobi stated, “We just wanted it to be an extension of the amazing things we’ve already been doing with Woodbridge for eight years now. It was time for some new pieces, so we kept that refined, slightly traditional look. A lot of people love that it looks very traditional, with wonderful brown tones and woodgrains, but we added a sleek styling and silhouette.”

Multipurpose Furniture for Modern Living

To address the challenges of small living spaces, they’ve created multipurpose pieces to adapt to various needs. For instance, a desk can double as a bedside table, or sit behind a sofa, designed with versatility in mind. Despite the trend towards less formal workspaces, Tobi emphasizes the desk’s multifaceted utility. “I use a desk all the time. This one is finished all the way around the back so it can float in a room. It has a drop-down keyboard tray, making it great for technology, a vanity, or just about anything.”

Smart Solutions for Small Spaces

Tobi’s focus on functionality extends to solutions for small spaces. “We did a new buffet piece that could be a media cabinet or a buffet. It has great fluting, brass inlay on the top and edges, offering beautiful detail while remaining sleek and simple. It’s perfect for any room, whether it’s the library, bedroom, or living room.”

Even the dining chairs are designed for versatility. “The dining chair is a little bit wider, so it could serve as an occasional chair if needed. I like to give designers options, ensuring our pieces can be used in various ways.”
