About Sitskie

Sitskie is a Detroit-based design studio and purveyor of fine crafted home goods.  Sitskie was founded in 2012 by husband and wife team, Vanessa and Adam Friedman.  We proudly hand build all of our pieces locally.

Each item is thoughtfully developed by Adam Friedman, designer and craftsman.  The finished products you see are a final iteration of many takes.  We build and rebuild to fine tune the design and comfort level.

Born in Los Angeles, Adam attended Rhode Island School of Design for ID and graduated from CalArts with a BFA.  He is the principal designer and craftsman behind the Sitskie Design Studio line and finds inspiration by seeking new ways to see, feel and experience the everyday world. In addition to furniture design, he has also designed, developed and patented tech products and flooring.  

We believe the spaces you inhabit should be filled with objects that inspire and delight you. We aim to design and build products that will do just that.

In addition to our furniture, Sitskie offers design and product development services.
