Ryan and Lauren Granger are a husband and wife team with a passion for creating beautiful designs. Ryan is a trained Industrial Designer who spent several years designing innovative products and high-end furniture for companies such as Restoration Hardware, Four Seasons and Vera Wang. Lauren spent time working in fashion PR in Los Angeles and has always loved items that are at the cusp of on-trend and timeless. Together, this design duo takes extreme pride in their meticulous craftsmanship and eye for aesthetic and functionality, and design and manufacture all of their pieces in their Chicago studio.
Tinsel & Timber is a strong believer in corporate sustainability. Each of their designs makes efficient use of raw materials with only a small percentage of the material being lost in fabrication. "We want to ensure that future generations have access to the same resources we do today, so we have partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to make a donation for every product sold, which results in the planting of a tree," says Lauren. “We want our grandchildren to have access to the same resources we have. We feel good about what we’re doing."
