Josh Howard (of CGB's CSA!) launched Daughters and Sons Furniture soon after he made a bedroom set for his newborn daughter, Siena. He wanted something well-crafted, beautiful and safe for her...which he soon learned was difficult to find. Believing very strongly in high quality furniture, Josh created his own. And now, almost 20 months since Siena was born, Josh is handcrafting all this gorgeous furniture in his Charlton shop.

He uses lumber harvested either locally (from his own 100-acre farm in MA) or through distributors who practice fair wage principles. Josh also uses natural pigments and dyes for coloring, and all the finishes and topcoats have little or no VOC's.

Visit CGB to admire Josh's work and learn more about working with Josh to take home your very own handcrafted piece of furniture.
