True wood, authentic spirit

Fill your space with a story.


Wood is remarkable. Each piece has a rich history and is truly unique. Our aim is to show off this natural beauty by creating designs that expose the character of the wood. We advocate all things authentic and cling on to the principle that if you buy quality, you buy less.

The name Purebred speaks to the character of the wood used in our creations. The wood is pure, single origin.  That means no plywood, no particle board, etc. Behind the first of layer of walnut, you will simply find more walnut. No veneers to worry about chipping away. No stains so that aging will only make the piece more beautiful.

Kellen Catani is the chief woodworker behind the scenes. He draws from his engineering background and Italian heritage as he develops his skill and creative expression. His family came to the States with a viola to perform in New England's operas, eventually making it to the Met. Over the next century the family produced a plaster artist, a bridge builder, and now a woodworker. At the end of the day, Catani's preeminent value is authenticity. Forming wood into functional objects is an expression of his passion.
