Meet The Maker

Kraig Weaver, And Collaborative

Kraig Weaver’s true calling was revealed to him in high school art class, when he built scale models of beds, tables and benches. But that passion–and those designs–would stay tucked away in his mind for years while Weaver worked as an engineer, until he finally pursued them again with the 2014 launch of Denver custom furniture studio And Collaborative. He quickly made up for lost time: Weaver and his team of two other makers have since created their indoor and outdoor furnishings for an array of residential and commercial projects, including Denver’s Call to Arms Brewing Company, Backyard on Blake, Resolute Brewing Company, Blue Sparrow Coffee and, most recently, The Block Distilling Co.
