“Locally made and thoughtfully crafted are two values woven into every piece of The Inheritance Collection.” These are the first words you here in a beautiful video about The Inheritance Collection by Stephen Kenn. I realy advice you to watch his video. It shows such a passionate designer really enjoying what he does and the people he works with.

Inheritance yields an amazing concept

Stephen got his inspiration from taking apart a piece of furniture. That’s when he noticed how complicated it was to make. He wanted to make it simpler, more transparent. He wanted to show structure and what the purpose was of every part in his furniture.

The Inheritance Collection is composed of steel welded frames with a marbled brown finish, custom webbing belts, smooth leather straps. The straps are modelled after WWII mule belts and the fabric he used comes from an incredible massive warehouse where he found old WWII military fabric. By using this fabric he wants to pay homage to the brave individuals that fought for our freedom.

Stephen Kenn:

“The design is simple, comfortable, and conducive to conversation.”

I must say, that’s a great tribute. And with a concept like that and furniture that looks so comfy and honest, Stephen Kenn has created an awesome furniture collection.
