Simple, open-ended furniture, toys, products and spaces sustainably designed and manufactured 100% in the USA. Playforms are play-based objects designed to inspire curiosity and foster creativity in children. They support open-ended, child directed play.
‘North Forty’ is a term we use in the Midwest to reference someplace way out there. We, at North Forty Design, thrive in that space. To us its a place full of open possibilities, free from convention and open to exploration. We create furniture, products, toys, spaces, and experiences that strive to honor that idea. Started in 2007 by husband and wife team Sandor and Jackelyn Pratt, North Forty has created award winning designs in natural materials with our unique balance of form and function, always made right here in the USA. Research, material exploration, experimentation, and a deep respect for craftsmanship of old and new guide us in our design process. Most of all, we live and work as a family - every day. We hope the joy and passion we get from working this way can finds its way into your home.
