Jared Rusten creates modern, solid-wood furniture, sculpture, and artwork under the appellation: J. Rusten Furniture Studio.

The studio was founded in 2002 with a mandate to advance the craft of woodworking, explore new and challenging solid-wood furniture designs, and construct beautiful, compelling, singular, and enduring objects.

We’ve recently moved from San Francisco to a warehouse in Stockton’s historic downtown (about 90 min. east). The purchase of this building affords us greater space and time to ensure the highest quality of work. And, our proximity to this shipping/transportation hub allows us to better serve our clients beyond the Bay Area. Please feel welcome to make an appointment to visit us here at:

726 E. Weber Ave. Stockton, CA 95202
