ABOUT

HANDMADE FURNITURE - CUSTOM DESIGNS - GARDEN ART

WHO - WHAT - WHERE

Nimble Mill designs and creates hand-crafted furniture in St. Louis, Missouri. Currently a one-man operation, Alan Lorence provides both the creative vision and the manpower to bring these designs to light.

 

OUR FOCUS

Initially concentrating on exterior furniture, our goal is to provide unique, stylish, and functional items for your garden, deck, or patio -- what we like to call "practical garden art".

 

Although our product catalog is currently limited, we're constantly experimenting with new designs and custom projects. Trellises, tables, benches, screens, and more -- we're always looking for ways to make gardens more attractive! (See the Gallery for examples of this type of work.)

UPCYCLING

We hate wasting good materials, so we reuse or repurpose items whenever possible. Cladding things in wood is one of our specialties. Contact us for examples.

 

CUSTOM DESIGNS

If you live in the St. Louis area, we also provide design and consultation services for those unique garden projects that you're unable to tackle for yourself.

 

INTERIOR FURNITURE

Although we are currently focusing on items for outdoors, we love building custom furniture for the home too. We've made specialty tables for baking and gaming, bed frames with storage, night stands, and much more. What do you need?

PRODUCTS

WHORN - STOOL/TABLE (indoor / outdoor)

A chunky, clean design that adds an element of colorful wood to your garden,  deck, or patio. Initially conceived of as a stool, this piece also functions wonderfully as a side table. Looks great on its own, but somehow becomes even more attractive in multiples.

 

Built as a solid (but hollow) block of wood, this is a sturdy piece!

 

Dimensions: About 11" (28cm) square and 18" (45cm) tall.

(Larger and/or taller versions may be available -- ask us!)

 

Available in many colors, from natural earthy tones to vibrant hues. Satin finish exterior grade polyurethane provides all-weather protection.
