Hi. I’m Daniel.

Daniel Mazzone is awesome and makes awesome things.

I design and build furniture in NYC. I also design and build commercial spaces as one-third of RatRod Design Studios.

To me, furniture is like architecture. Furniture should be built to last for generations, to solve problems, to be beautiful. You should be able to interact with it simply, smoothly, intuitively. The right piece of furniture will give you joy every time you see it.

I make furniture because I love it. The combination of craftsmanship, beauty, and functionality is genuinely gratifying. I love the feel of the wood and the strength of the steel. I love traditional joinery that has been proven time and again. I love experimenting with new materials, new designs, new ideas.

Furniture should be loved, used, and enjoyed. It should patina, not age.
