Caledonia Studios is a small company dedicated to building the finest handmade arts and crafts furniture in America.
Tedd and his small team of craftsmen build a limited number of pieces per year. We believe in the ideals of form following function and honest construction techniques. What results is an heirloom-quality piece of furniture, not a production piece.
Caledonia Studios was founded in 1997 by Tedd Colt after graduating from the California College of Arts and Crafts with a BFA degree in furniture design and sculpture. Tedd grew up in and around the historic bungalow neighborhoods of Pasadena and returned during his summers in college to restore neglected arts and crafts homes to help pay tuition. He quickly learned how to revive and restore the architecture to it original integrity and patina. After graduating he began designing and building handmade furniture with the same ideals that founded the American arts and crafts movement.
We also specialize in designing pieces for specific projects.
