MOVING MOUNTAINS is a studio founded by designer Syrette Lew, interested in the intersection of design, art, and fashion. Committed to working with regional craftsmen and fabricators, the studio produces furniture and accessories that aim to achieve an artful functionality able to withstand the test of time. In addition to it's own furniture and jewelry collections, the studio also collaborates with select clients to produce unique and one-off commissions for special projects.
Our furniture is mostly made to order. Please contact the studio for pricing and lead times. If you require customization, or would like to commission an original piece, we are happy to discuss your needs. A selection of Moving Mountains furniture can be seen at the NYC showroom COLONY. We recommend calling ahead to find out what is currently on view.
In 2014, Moving Mountains debuted its first furniture collection at the New York International Contemporary Furniture Fair and was awarded the Best Craftsmanship Award in addition to receiving a Metropolis Magazine Design Distinction Award. Our work has been featured in numerous publications such as Architectural Digest, Dwell, Elle Decor, Interior Design, Metropolis, and the NYTimes.
Born and raised in Hawaii, Syrette now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. The name Moving Mountains is a tribute to the Hawaiian archipelago and its imperceptible movement northwestward.
