A history lesson.
Los Angeles-based designer Matt Monroe is an experienced sculptor and carpenter and has been building things for as long as he can remember. Matt got his Bachelor of Arts at Colorado College and his Masters in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
Matt has been designing and building custom furniture since he launched Monroe Workshop in 2008.
The wooden toy shop.
A few years later he started making toys out of wood scraps as gifts for friends and for his own two daughters. Slowly the toys grew into a business of their own and Monroe Workshop Toys was born. The toys are all hand made of untreated solid hardwoods, 100% cotton rope, and upcycled Italian leather.
Inspiration for all ages.
The Los Angeles-based studio is committed to promoting imaginative play through simple yet innovative toys. Minimalism, design, and fun are components they value. In fact, the toys are designed to inspire grown-up kids as well and are the perfect addition to any home.
