Christina Boy / Christina Boy Design
Hometown: Madison, VA
With sleek, minimal designs, functional components and a distinctly modern eye for style, Christina Boy Design creates wooden art and furniture pieces entirely by hand. Located in Madison, Virginia, this self-proclaimed “one-woman shop” sources all materials locally and makes each item to last. Owner and designer, Christina Boy learned the art of woodworking in the Craft and Material Studies program at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, and was later awarded a 2-year Core Fellowship at the Penland School of Crafts to continue studying.
Christina Boy Design creates smaller items such as beautifully simple wooden serving trays and cutting boards with hand-stamped details, carved wooden knives and spreaders and salad tongs in your choice of woods. Larger items like mid-century modern inspired chairs, functional stools and patterned benches in colorful designs combine beauty and purpose. By using both traditional and modern woodworking techniques, Christina Boy Design makes small and large wooden home goods that can be cherished for years.
