We are Walnut Studiolo, a family-run workshop on the gorgeous Oregon Coast.

It all started with Geoffrey Franklin's old 1978 Bianchi road bike. Biking to work every day in Portland, Oregon inspired Geoffrey to customize his ride. When he couldn't find what he was looking for, he decided to create his own unique designs. In 2009, his wife Valerie opened a store on Etsy, and Walnut Studiolo was born. 

Today we still make each piece by hand in our workshop, harmonizing modern design with old world materials and methods.
