"When Michael Murphy asked me what I wanted in a chair, I told him that I wanted something that my kids, and maybe even grandkids, could sit in, after I'm gone -- a way for a piece of me to live inside the otherwise inanimate object. That's the difference between a bunch of wood joined together to facilitate sitting and the things that Michael crafts. He builds to last, to outlast, to be passed down. The chair he made for me exists now as a modern, cool take on something familiar -- it looks cool on my porch, if that makes sense -- and it also exists in the future, as a collection of stories and memories."
