Those who get it get gort.

From his workshop on the outskirts of Whitehorse, Yukon, craftsman Paul Gort is quietly working to create a design and lifestyle revolution, one piece of furniture at a time.

Drawing upon his passion for classic mid-century designs and traditional joinery techniques, Paul strives to create pieces that transcend both trends and time.

Paul’s clients appreciate and share his design aesthetic which offers simplicity, beauty and longevity as a welcome alternative to cookie-cutter assembly line furniture produced for the masses.

Each chair, bench, cabinet and table is crafted with quality materials carefully sourced from North American hardwoods and built to last a lifetime of use. Dovetails and mortise and tenon joinery replace nails and screws resulting in pieces as artful as they are practical.

Gort originals can be found on this website and in select galleries. Custom designs are also available through private commission.
