Welcome to the Home of "Primitive Designs by Bernie" located high in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina. Click HERE for an inside tour of the studio which is for the most part completely furnished with my furniture. You can also come back here and page down for more pictures and information.

If North Carolina isn't God's Country why is the sky so heavenly blue?

Hello, and welcome to "Primitive Designs by Bernie". My name is Bernie; me and my best friend Buster Brown  (you can click on his name if you want to see a picture of him at work.) live in a tiny township outside Burnsville, North Carolina named Low Gap. Burnsville is home to world-renowned artisans, including potters, sculpturess, wood workers, and glass blowers. These artists have open studios and allow visitors to view there work at these galleries

My home also serves as my studio and is where I display furniture and home accessories in the living room, upstairs bedroom, kitchen and around the  fireplace.

I can craft anything you want just give me a description or a photograph and I will design it to your specifications.  I work with Mt. Laurel, Rhododendron, Smoke Vine and Recycled Barn Wood in the handcrafting of Rustic Stick Furniture (primitive and fine finish), Bird Houses, Plant Stands, Window Boxes, Baskets and more. Below is a sample of what I have done.

 All my crafts are completely handmade by me. I use Mountain Laurel, Rhododendron and Smoke Vine all of which are obtained from the Appalachian Mountains, where I live. The wood is obtained (re-claimed) in a forest friendly way. Smoke Vine is an uncommon plant which grows only at an altitude of around 3,100 feet and above.  Smoke Vine gets its name from its fireplace or campfire aromatic character.  Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron are extremely heavy and hard woods and grow in peculiar shapes making them excellent for my stick furniture. They are also very weather resistant and do not require any protection or sealer.

For orders, or information you can email me by clicking here bsampson@trccomputing.com  Give me the page number and the item name I will get back to you or call me at "Primitive Designs by  Bernie" at  828-678-9968.

Buster and I  want to thank you for taking a look at my work. If you have any questions or comments I would appreciate hearing from you. Call me at 828-678-9968 or email me by clicking here  bsampson@trccomputing.com .

All Materials used are Harvested (re-claimed) locally in a forest friendly manner.
