Drawing on our craft based practice, combined with our background in metal fabrication, New Antiquity is a one-stop-shop for commercial millwork and fabrication. Our portfolio of work ranges from single bespoke restaurants and breweries, to co-working-office spaces, to multi-unit chain restaurants and developments. While we do offer design services and shop drawings for all of our projects, New Antiquity enjoys collaborations with Architects and Designers on exciting projects nationwide.

In wood, metal or a combination of the two, handmade bespoke furniture is the cornerstone of our business. Nearly all of our projects involve single or multiple pieces of complex handmade furniture and casework. A reputation built on craft and attention to detail has allowed us to build our business into what it is today. These pieces, large or small are what we enjoy most about what we do everyday.

Matt Rink and Sarah Bader, husband and wife, artists and builders reside and operate New Antiquity from breathtakingly beautiful Litchfield County.  They both attended Alfred University in Upstate New York, each receiving a BFA in sculpture, metal working, woodworking, and photography combined. Matt obtained his MFA in design and sculpture from Clemson University in South Carolina.  What began as an exciting collaboration, building furniture for their apartment and wedding, swiftly grew into a full time business as they discovered the possibilities in the confluence between functional and fine art.  Matt and Sarah draw inspiration from the landscape and history around them, creating designs that are purposeful and transformative.  All their creations are built and designed with clever details and fine craftsmanship that is both practical and whimsical.
