Craftsman For Life
Ryan Chaney | Dallas, Texas
Sometimes it takes a little dirt, grime, and elbow grease to make something beautiful and outstanding. Every day in a worn-in workshop in Dallas, Texas, Ryan Chaney and his motley crew of builders, designers, and fabricators at 44Build roll up their sleeves and get to work creating statement pieces of furniture and finish out for companies all over the state.
“When you get something that has a 44 stamp on it, you know that it’s made in Texas, that it’s one of a kind.”
At Ryan’s multi-faceted design and build firm, the aesthetic revolves around using raw or high-quality vintage materials married with innovative, modern shapes for an end result that’s altogether timeless, stylish, and unique. It’s old meets new. It’s elegant, weathered wood and hand-forged metals. It’s new leather that feels lived in. And all of it is lovingly directed by Ryan and his builders, who’s mission it is to bring authenticity to a new era by honoring the craftsmanship of the past.
