Founded in 2023, Champagne Leather & Wood really started in 1990. Let us explain. Ken Champagne is the Chief Artisan & Founder of Champagne Leather & Wood.
Ken’s craftsmanship officially began with designing and building a grandfather clock back in the 90s. Most of his designs started on a shopping trip, and some comment like, “Well I can build that better myself”.
An eye for both elegant and rustic, coupled with an appreciation for unique and repurposed or upcycled woods,
We blend unmatched artistry and amazing skill along with rich storytelling. The story behind the collections helps solidify its place in one’s home or business for generations to come.
With an unwavering commitment to excellence, our Chief Artisan meticulously crafts each piece, blending traditional techniques with modern innovation. Our wood, leather and steel tell a story, using reclaimed hand hewn woods from as recent as the 1800’s, to sunken cypress certified at 1000 years old. Exotic and super exotics include leopard wood, marble wood, purple heart and Bolivian rosewood.
At Champagne Leather and Wood, we celebrate the inherent beauty of nature’s gift: wood & leather. We believe in sustainable practices that honor our environment and promote responsible forestry. We carefully select premium, ethically sourced timber from suppliers who share our vision for ensuring that each piece embodies the rich, warm hues and unique grain patterns that make wood so enchanting. By choosing us, you not only acquire a breathtaking work of art but also contribute to a greener, more sustainable future. We emphasize repurposed and up-cycled materials in all of our pieces. The history of our materials can be as interesting as the unique items we create. We tan our own leathers and snake skins and sew all of our leather products in house. We MIG or TIG weld every bracket and hinge, and turn knobs for doors and drawers. We partner with a blacksmith who produces hand hammered bolts, screws and plates when required in a variety of finishes.
Our commitment to quality extends beyond the artistic realm. We understand that furniture should not only be beautiful but also functional and durable. Our artisan woodworker meticulously handcrafts each piece to withstand the test of time. With a blend of traditional joinery techniques and modern construction methods, we create heirloom-quality wooden pieces that will be cherished for generations.
In a world of mass production, embrace the rarity of elevated craftsmanship. Each piece that leaves our workshop is an ode to individuality, telling a story that connects people. When you choose Champagne Leather & Wood, you are investing in an experience, a connection to the past, and an heirloom for the future.
Let your imagination take flight. Whether it’s a handcrafted resin table, a timber & iron chandelier curated from wood from the Ghost Mine Collection or or a custom-designed dress belt or holster…
