Welcome to Bookman Designs! We’re a small (two person, six cat, and one dog) company located in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York.  The work we do is inspired by the belief that the world is driven by creative energy; to be able to actively engage in that creative energy while living in a beautiful part of the world is something that we are truly grateful for.

While our designs are rooted in the time-honored Adirondack tradition we are capable of working in a variety of styles and are always exploring new ideas. Items represented in our gallery are just a sampling of what we can do.  The majority of our work is custom and we work closely with our clients to create pieces that best compliment their unique tastes.

Enjoy your visit to our website.  If you’d like to know more please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Unique table

The root base table with the walnut top is done and you won’t find a more unique piece anywhere.  Currently found at our store we’ll also have it at Sparkle Village this weekend.  Asking price is $3,500 (includes tax) and we offer free delivery within the tri-lakes area.  (Anything beyond that can be negotiated.)  This is one that has to be seen to be believed.  (More pictures in our gallery.)

Upcoming shows

There are two shows in the area in the coming weeks and we’ll be at both of them.  First is the North Country Community College Annual Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair on November 22. Then it’s Saranac Lake’s Sparkle Village Arts & Crafts Fair on December 4 & 5.  (More info can be found on their respective sites.)  Some of what we plan on having there are picture frames and mirrors, a shelf or two and a root-base table.

New project for the store

We’re busy working on a couple of projects that you’ll be able to see soon.  First is a coffee station for our store, Moose Maple Books & More.  The sideboard we were using sold so we decided on a built-in piece done in more of a country style.  So far the top has been glued together and, as you can see, it’s going to be lovely.  With luck we’ll have it installed by the end of the year.  More pictures as work progresses so stay tuned.
