We named McKinnon and Harris for our grandmothers, both of whom created beautiful Virginia gardens. Our mother’s mother, Annie Scott Harris Robertson, had a refined city garden at her childhood home. Our father’s mother, Ella Wyatt McKinnon Massie had an elegantly rustic country garden at the family farm. Both took great pride in their gardens and in the beautiful furniture which allowed them to enjoy the garden throughout the seasons.
Our creation of McKinnon and Harris furniture evolved naturally from indelible memories of time spent outdoors, from our love for family and inherited, cherished family treasures. We named many pieces in the collection for beloved family members, including an adored pet--our father’s favorite hunting dog. The collection of McKinnon and Harris is conceived as a kind of eclectic family, with one piece having a relationship to another.
We consider it a tremendous privilege to craft our enduring furniture to play a part in your family’s memories.
