PJ Hire, founder of Denver Wood Co and the face behind the furniture, has been a creator, designer and builder for as long as he can remember – often crafting unique pieces for friends and family. After college graduation, he jumped into the corporate world and most recently did a stint in the tech industry. Steady paychecks and benefits are great, but PJ wanted more. He longed for an opportunity to put his passion for design and quality craftsmanship into play. In spring 2018, he made the leap forward to found Denver Wood Co. With an emphasis on modern design, precise craftsmanship and locally sourced materials, Denver Wood Co aims to create simple, beautiful, enduring furnishings that fit beautifully into a wide array of spaces and lifestyles.
We pride ourselves on the pieces we produce, but it’s not just about building furniture. Our greatest satisfaction comes from the relationships we build with our clients. And, of course, from the community we call home. We’re Denver Wood Co and our dream is to bring beauty, function and happiness in our clients’ homes every day. One piece of carefully crafted furniture at a time.
