Art by Manufacture

ABM embraces both automated technologies and the old world principles of woodworking. We artfully combine recent innovations in manufacturing processes with the timeless reliability of traditional woodworking. The approach we take to building, is to compose small elements of a whole, while focusing on the finite detail inside of those elements – which ultimately leads to improving the overall composition of the finished product.

A chance meeting through industry connections in 2012 was the catalyst between owners Scott Moore and Chad Austin to partner in a joint venture that became Austin Bryant Moore in May of 2013. Our goals were to establish ABM as a multi-faceted design/build manufacture that could not only fabricate any aspect of an interiors project but draw on our background in fine furniture and the trades to help on front end design, which translates to the finished product. With this concept of Artistry by manufacture, we have developed and implemented an “ABM standard” that allows us to have an intimate relationship with each project through design, production, and installation. As we continue to grow, we are constantly widening our services and seeking the talented artisans it takes to produce superior products that meet the standards of our luxury brand.

Art by Manufacture

As a boutique manufacturer, Austin Bryant Moore integrates the precision craftsmanship needed for quality luxury interiors, into the proven process of scalable manufacturing. No matter how intricate the product or design, we are able to deconstruct it into a set of tasks that can be repeated based on the volume need.

Scott Moore

Scott Moore started his journey in the interiors market as a passion for designing that wasn’t being met in his job in the corporate environment. After attending a woodworking school in NE Georgia, Scott began building furniture and casework projects for friends and neighbors in his garage in Buckhead as an artistic outlet. As his skills progressed, he was able to grow it from a hobby into a business, Saddlecreek Design, established in 2004 which he moved from Atlanta to Franklin in 2010.

Scott lives in Franklin with his wife and 3 children who all enjoy spending time in the wonderful outdoors that Tennessee has to offer. While he is a little too old to enjoy the noise of the shop nowadays “The Duke”, a Pembroke Corgi, has been with him since the garage.

Chad Austin basically grew up on job sites with a father and extended family that were all highly skilled tradesman. Through the years his experience of watching and fetching tools grew into all aspects of home building, including, rough framing, trim work, and finishing. At age 22, Chad designed and built his own home, including all aspects of construction and even built the finished cabinetry and furniture.

In 1999 the Handcrafted Furniture Company was born with it’s first furniture line and shortly thereafter moved the company from Oxford, MI to Nashville in late 2006. Chad lives on a 300-acre property near the Cumberland Plateau on which his wife and 2 children board several horses for their clients. On weekends he can be found maintaining trails or riding the property on the back of Hurricane Ivan, a surefooted walking horse.

The People

We surround ourselves with skilled craftsman that complete interiors projects from ideation to implementation. Over the years we have amassed a network of extremely talented fabricators, benchmen, and artists that are proven at their craft-from all over the United States.

Each artisan plans and visualizes not only the completed piece of furniture but also each small step in the process. The artisan is responsible for designing a piece that not only serves some functional purpose, but also exhibits the beauty that is displayed across all of our collections. Throughout the design process, the artisan seeks to bridge the gap between the aesthetic composition of a piece and the practical nuances of constructing furniture.

It is our unprecedented manufacturing and design approach, the character of wood, the depth of our finish, the unique hardware, and our attention to detail, that make our product so inviting.
