Hinterland Design’s handcrafted pieces are rooted in the natural environment of the Pacific Northwest. Established by designer Riley McFerrin in 2011, the Vancouver studio draws inspiration and materials from the forests and beaches of British Columbia for its contemporary functional objects. Each design is fabricated by Hinterland artisans from locally salvaged or sustainably sourced materials, like the Little Gem Table made from reclaimed cedar hewn into a sleek, faceted form. The studio’s work has been spotlighted by Architectural Digest, Interior Design and Azure, and its bent ash and sheep’s wool Shepherd’s Chair was recognized by Gray magazine as a standout in Pacific Northwest design. Hinterland’s organic approach to contemporary craftsmanship may be rooted in local tradition, but it has caught the eye of an international audience - the studio was selected as one of the rising talents showcased in the “A New Breed” exhibition during Milan Design Week.
