Who we are

The Last Workshop is a custom furniture company based in Chicago, IL. We aim for our designs to be simple, functional, and long-lasting. From material selection to fabrication, we are focused on producing projects that are 100% sourced and made in the U.S. for both residential and commercial environments. 



Our projects are made in-house and with a select network of trusted craftsmen, fabricators, suppliers, and friends in the Chicago area. This network has been carefully selected from of our shared vision of quality work, and the fair prices it takes to get there.
