When Sara Ossana met Jonathan Glatt at the Rhode Island School of Design, she was studying interior architecture and he was studying jewelry design—but they hit it off in a fateful furniture class. A friendship quickly formed, though it wasn’t until years later that they teamed up to found their furniture company, O & G Studio, in Warren, Rhode Island. Best known for their handcrafted Windsor dining chairs, the duo segued into laid-back seating with the “Matunuck” lounge chair (named for the popular Rhode Island oyster bar). “We wanted to address a different kind of elevation in a room,” Ossana says. “It’s exciting for us to design a piece that works in our collection but is also a departure from what we’ve offered in the past.” Have a seat at their new Barrington, Rhode Island, showroom, and sit tight for upcoming table designs as well as a line of kitchen and accent hardware due later this year.
“Matunuck” lounge chair in ash or maple with down-filled leather cushion, starting at $4,600, O & G Studio, 40 Maple Ave., Barrington, RI, 520-289-1932, oandgstudio.com.
