“I'm a big collector, so the entire space is inspiration. I'm constantly rearranging and dragging in new stuff, so the space is constantly evolving.”

The son of a craftsman, Aaron Ruff grew up with a strong sense of artistry and construction. Working as both a carpenter and cabinetmaker, he enrolled at Parsons to study furniture design. But after taking a class in jewelry making, Aaron soon discovered his true craft. While enjoying the familiarity and technique of creating furniture, he found a more intimate connection with constructing objects that people could actually wear and behold. This connection is distinct in each one of his well-crafted pieces. Working out of Brooklyn, Aaron draws from his childhood fantasies of exploration, which lends a playful quality to his work.
