Acclaimed designer Maxine Snider founded the eponymous furniture company in Chicago in 1998. Inspired by an extended stay in Paris, where she immersed herself in the study library of the Musee D’Orsay, Snider created the firm’s first collection, aptly named “The Paris Series,” a group of ten pieces that were as rational as they were romantic.

In the decades since, the company has thoughtfully expanded its collection to more than seventy meticulously crafted, highly refined pieces of furniture. Artisanal details nod to the Shakers, the French modernists, and the great Scandinavian designers, as well as the simple beauty of Japanese everyday objects. Elegantly designed tables and desks, sofas and chairs, beds, cabinets, and consoles respect design history, while introducing a fresh air of modernism. Each piece is individually crafted and hand-finished in Chicago. HONNING currently manufactures the work of two distinct designers: Maxine Snider, featuring original designs by the company’s founder; and those designed exclusively for HONNING by Bridgette Buckley.
