Arbor Exchange is a design and build furniture studio based out of Pasadena, California. It is led by designer/craftsman Josh Jackson, who co-founded the studio in the summer of 2010.

After working as an entrepreneur and primarily sitting in front of a computer, Josh read Shop Class As Soulcraft and was heavily influenced by it's appeal to work with ones hands and the beautiful and complex nature of manual work.  He was also influenced by his Grandfather, who was a master carpenter who built his home and always answered a resounding yes to any of Josh's questions of what was possible to make. Founding Arbor was a return to his roots. 

With an emphasis on sustainability and heirloom quality craftsmanship, Arbor Exchange's focus is to design and build furniture that will last for many generations to come.
