About Us

Essjay Design is an environmentally friendly, socially responsible business that builds exquisite furniture that will last for generations. Our Furniture is hand-made in the USA by true artisans, spear-headed by Stanley Joffe, who has been making furniture for almost 50 years.

At Essjay Design, our primary goal is to handcraft beautiful furniture with an heirloom patina and quality that will last for generations. Furniture that will touch your soul - as only natural wood can!

Inspired by the  magnificent designs and finish of the urban farm lifestyle.

Essjay Design prides itself in it’s sustainable manufacturing principles.

All our ’new’ lumber is from sustainably managed forest suppliers 
primarily from the Appalachian Forests which are among the most sustainably managed in the world. In many cases the lumber is FSC certified.

In some cases it is not, due to the certification cost 



Stanley Joffe, originally from South Africa, has been making handcrafted furniture, inspired by the Cape Dutch style, for over 45 years. And now we’re bringing it to our valued existing customers and to our ‘soon to be valued customers’
