MATT L RIVERA

MLR FURNITURE DESIGN of fredericksburg, texas

If you have visited our shop in Boerne, you most likely noticed the jaw-dropping conference table in our front office. It is just one of many creations built by Matt L Rivera.

 All of his pieces are hand-made with locally-harvested wood sourced by Matt himself.  His creations include all types of furniture as well as small pieces such as coasters and other household items. No two works are ever the same.

Matt's Process

Matt harvests his materials from dead standing trees or interesting root bases. He usually mills the planks of wood on the spot using a portable mill. Then the wood has to dry before it can be used which can take up to two years.  From there, the unique wood material inspires each design.  Matt also incorporates mixed media which includes glass, steal, concrete, and cast aluminum. 

Matt welcomes commissioned pieces.  Please click below if you're interested in having a piece done for your project or home.
