In a Nutshell

A partnership by Jacob Aune and Austin Glidewell founded in 2012 (with Austin departing the company in 2015) to serve Catholic institutions seeking traditional-inspired furnishings for churches and chapels.  Since then, commercial and residential clients have requested the use of our services and we’ve expanded operations to serve all three types of clientele.

Check out our services page for more information on our offerings or our philosophy page to learn about our approach to church furniture design.
