SinCa is a design studio with the drive to create furniture with emphasis on thoughtful design and fine woodworking.
Every piece that comes out from our shop has been meticulously designed to speak of the modern and fresh lifestyle of the 21st century without losing the warm and traditional touch of a hand crafted piece of furniture.
The SinCa wood shop and design studio is located within a historic 1850 farm-house in Tolland CT.
The synergy between the past and present elements of the space is a direct influence to our design strategy.
We spend a great amount of time developing a coherent collection that reflects the aesthetic style of SinCa. Every piece is fabricated upon request giving us endless possibilities of personalizing each piece for you.
Besides offering the variety of the Collection, SinCa offers site-specific design solutions in close collaboration with architects and users, from the project conception until its final materialization.
