Each step in our process, from the inception of a design to the final stages of
construction, is completed in-house (with the exception of an occasional trip
out to our favorite metal fabrication studios). Designing and building beautifully
crafted furnishings is what we love to do, and we wouldn't want to miss out on
any of the fun!
The designs within our collection tend to be structurally driven and detail
oriented with an attempt to bring out the natural beauty of the materials with
which they are constructed. We use only the highest quality hardwoods and
other materials, handcrafting them with joinery which contributes to the beauty
of each piece while responding to traditional woodworking techniques.
Gitane Workshop is a Denver-based furniture studio founded by Scott
Friedman. With backgrounds in architecture, industrial design, construction and
furniture design, we approach the design and fabrication of each piece with a
love of the "built" environment, the materials we use and the design process.
We pride ourselves in creating heirloom quality furniture of distinctive
authenticity and exceptional craftsmanship.
We offer a full collection of unique, contemporary furniture as well as custom
design and fabrication services for residential and commercial clients. If you
like the designs you see in our collection but don't find exactly what you are
looking for, just give us a call. We will be happy to work with you on a design
which will work perfectly for your space. We are also happy to work with you on
custom designs outside of the common furniture types, such as built-in
constructs and pieces incorporating reused or found objects and materials

architecture which included a lot of artistic
drawing and sculpture, it seems that he has the
intrinsic and overriding instinct that’s often
channelled through the hands of a born
craftsman." . . .
