Based in Ohio, we design and build American made commercial furniture for the hospitality space. Our proximity to the Appalachian region’s hardwoods enables us to locally and responsibly source our materials.
We believe in the value of bringing the natural world into the spaces where we gather, eat, dream, and share. Our pieces are made of natural materials that bring the quality of the outdoors and the restorative effects of biophilic design to your space.
Dennis and Denise Blankemeyer grew up together in a small town in rural Ohio. In 1995 the childhood sweethearts started Crow Works in a 1,200 square foot location in Grandview Heights, Ohio. The company was founded on the steadfast principles of timeless American design, the use of natural materials, and fostering connection and community.
From these humble beginnings, Crow Works has grown into a design-centric manufacturing company with full custom design and manufacturing capabilities. Crow Works now has 100,000 square feet of manufacturing facilities on a 100 acre Campus in Killbuck, Ohio with a studio in Johnstown, Ohio. Crow Works has served over 1,000 clients across North America.
In 2019, Dennis and Denise opened Ghostwriter Public House, a full-service bar, restaurant, and showcase for Crow Works’ manufacturing and design capabilities. Ghostwriter serves as a social and communal space for Crow Works team members and the local communities.

The wood we use allows us to showcase the story of the tree and brings natural variation to each product we create. Our teams take this resource and turn them into durable, functional, beautiful furniture pieces built to last.
Our love for natural materials means that we are especially careful when sourcing components and building our furniture. Here are a few of the ways Crow Works does this:
