The Stemn System

Jul 29

The foundation of Fyrn lies in Stemn, our proprietary design system that brings together the warmth of hardwood with the strength of metal, making our furniture…

Elegant. A restrained and essential design language, quietly fitting into any space without over embellishment.

Resilient. Strength and durability that is proven to hold up in even the most high-trafficked spaces.

Enduring. A parts-and-pieces system that can be repaired or refurbished, even for changing tastes

Stemn enables a more confident experience with furniture:

Faster lead times + Targeted delivery: Delivered in weeks, not months. Stemn’s parts-and-pieces system enables us to more efficiently craft the components we need to build each custom item. We're also able to pin-point delivery, adjusting as necessary to moving install-dates.

In-Home Trial / Quick-ship seating samples: A testament to the confidence we have in the design, quality and utility of our pieces. We're happy to provide a seating sample to design firms and contract clients, or offer residential in-home-trial, with delivery of a chair or stool in two-weeks.

10-year warranty: Our pledge to stand by the quality of our pieces and to support our customer's needs

Buy Back: When circumstances or tastes change, we’ll repurchase your pieces - which we can easily repair or refurbish as necessary and put back into circulation on the Annex.

The system takes consideration and responsibility for the full life-cycle of our products. 

Our approach to furniture design and build focuses on:

Honoring natural materials and resources that go into each piece:

Our primary materials & expertise: Domestically sourced North American Hardwoods from responsibly managed forests. Infinitely recyclable steel and aluminum, milled in-house.

Our methods: Maximizing lumber yields + honoring the organic characteristics of our solid wood pieces with VOC-free oil finishes. Enabling and encouraging the sale of seconds and refurbished items through the Annex.

Building furniture that lasts, while accounting for the realities of a decades-long-life for each piece: 

Less than 1% claims rate on our 10 year manufacturing warranty, including product in public spaces. Precise aerospace tolerances in our patented joinery ensure durability where other furniture fails most.

Parts & pieces system that enables easier repair and refurbishment if unusual circumstances arise. 

Considering and planning for the impact of logistics:

Maximizing storage / warehouse capacity via a built-to-order parts & pieces system. 

Enabling flat-pack or intuitively assembled products which ship easier, faster, and require a smaller carbon footprint.
