Seattle-based furniture and product designer Darin Montgomery is constantly striving for a simpler, more pared-back lifestyle, hence the name of his design studio: Fin, which means “nice” in several Scandinavian languages, “soft” in Romanian and “end” in Spanish and French, conveys the relaxed, calming design embodied by the brand.
Creating original furniture and accessories from their SoDo neighborhood workshop since 2016, Fin is committed to minimizing environmental impact, and their new line of seating, tables and rugs is no exception.
“As a designer and manufacturer, I feel we have a great responsibility to use resources wisely and with respect,” Montgomery says. “In each step of the design process for our new collection, we worked hard to balance functionality, aesthetics and material usage. My hope is that our customers understand and appreciate all that goes into each piece, and it makes their space more functional and comfortable.”
