2018 marks the fifth anniversary for Charlie Greene Studio. It’s been an incredible, unbelievable thing to start a design firm. We’ve worked hard, and we’ve been very fortunate. The five years have seemed simultaneously long and short.

The traditional gift for a fifth wedding anniversary is wood. I like this as an expression of our fifth anniversary in business as well.

Wood isn’t manufactured. It grows. Wood is strong and straight and true. Wood is authentic to itself, but responds to its surroundings.

As we mark a milestone of five years in business, we celebrate our wood-ness, and look forward to what the next five years of growth will bring.
