ABOUT OUR FURNITURE

Custom Furniture Built With Care and Skill

Blue Dog Furniture is a family-run business started in 1993 by Keith & Kate Ledford.  The popularity of our furniture grew word of mouth until the demand necessitated a real manufacturing facility, opened in 1995.  We've historycally been a log furniture manufacturer, but have adapted to the evolving style and demand of our clientele.  Our expansion into "fine" furniture and architectural styles began to develop around 2005.  Blue Dog Furniture has become well-known name in and around Missoula for many projects both residential and commercial.  And our log furniture line is still going strong with installations in countless lodges & homes.

Our log furniture is built from hand-selected raw logs.  The composition of our custom wood furniture is inspired by nature; the forms created reflect the natural beauty of the Montana landscape. Each log is hand peeled, dried and chosen for its specific use. The curve, color and proportion of each log are all carefully considered by our craftsmen to provide you with a truly unique piece that is both beautiful and functional.

Our other woodworking styles are virtually limitless. However, we have specialized in beautiful "live" edge salvaged wood tabletops made from walnut, maple & oak.  Our Danish modern style furniture has grown in popularity, as well as our custom cabinets.  Be inspired by the products shown on our website, or share your own ideas with us.  We can build it!

Blue Dog Furniture's environmentally friendly operation utilizes salvaged wood milled on site.  Additionally we use dead-standing lodgepole pine that would otherwise provide fuel for forest fires, feed for invasive beetles and generally go to waste. Wood by-products are donated for fuel, landscaping other uses.

About the Blue Dog

Blue Dog Furniture was named after our dog Reuben; his mottled grey coat mimicks the colors in the logs used to build furniture.  Reuben lived to the old age of 16.
