Through minimalist design and strong craftsmanship, Two Tree Studios wood-based goods aim to facilitate people connecting with and deriving meaning from the products in their homes. Each item is handcrafted by founder Allison Samuels, who grew up in New York’s lush Hudson Valley. A childhood surrounded by forests and rock-filled rivers undoubtedly translated to an eye for simple, nature-based design and strong interest in preserving natural resources.
Shortly after receiving her BFA in Fibers from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Allison returned to New York to pursue cabinetry and create the fledgling Two Tree brand. When not in the shop, she is most likely found recipe testing, catching up on the news out on her fire escape, or in the occasional yoga class. Allison currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
