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.

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.

Rustic table

We recently delivered this table to a client.  It has a yellow birch root base with a cherry top.  Accents are birch bark and striped maple with a few colored leaves for fun.

Next up: North Country’s Holiday Arts and Crafts Show, North Country Community College (Saranac Lake campus), Sunday November 22 from 10:00-3:30.  After that, Sparkle Village in the Saranac Lake Town Hall, Friday December 4, from 4 – 8 and Saturday December 5, from 10 – 4.   We’ll see you there!


Great Adirondack Birding Celebration

We donate a mirror to the Paul Smith’s VIC’s for their annual Great Adirondack Birding Celebration and this year was no exception.  (We were also asked to fill in as vendors, both as Bookman Designs and as Moose Maple Books.)  This year we decided to try something new – a pair of Red-tailed Hawks against a blue sky.  It’s different, another way to add some fun to our work.  Tell us what you think!
