SENTIENT is a New York City based furniture design and fabrication company with more than 25,000 square feet of workshop facilities in Brooklyn. We have extensive experience manufacturing residential, commercial and hospitality furnishings including case goods and accent items. We have supplied furniture to the New York City area for decades and also foreign markets including Canada, United Kingdom and The Middle East.
SENTIENT Furniture was created by an attorney, a physician and an industrial designer. The three of us share the strongest passion for thoughtful, creative and original design. The result of our combined efforts is a furniture and objects design and fabrication firm with a philosophy that is found in the name. The word ‘sentient’ is defined as ‘the power of perception’, ‘by sensation and consciousness’. On viewing our work we hope your consciousness is provoked by our expressive creations. At different times our work is subtle and relaxing. At other times it might be audacious and bold. In our drive for originality our work may include materials that are of limited supply or are not generally easy to work with. We believe this increases the uniqueness. On occasion some of our work will of necessity be available only on a limited basis.
