BEST OF HOUZZ 2013-2018

Internationally recognized and based in Seattle, we design modern, highly crafted, sustainable custom homes as well as furniture, lighting, and hardware!
We have completed over 60 residential projects, both new construction and renovations.

We believe strongly in "smart sustainable" design and belong to the US Green Building Council. Our projects are all designed to qualify for LEED certification.

Our typical scope of services often includes interior design and some custom furnishings, light fixtures or cabinets. Nils Finne has designed over 75 custom furniture and lighting pieces. The custom work contributes to the idea of "Crafted Modernism," which is present in all FINNE projects. A client recently remarked that visitors to his house immediately start touching everything, the wood surfaces, the stone, and the steel. Sometimes we actually see with our hands, we touch a piece and somehow connect to its maker.

Commented: Low windows Hi, Sorry for the late reply. Yes, most of the low windows are operable, which brings in a very good airflow into the house. We also have high operable windows to generate air flow out of the house.
