Our goal at Against The Grain is to provide handcrafted wood and nautical items primarily from local artists as well as artists from other areas of the United States and Canada. We have very good relationships with our Amish partners and have become one of the best sources for Amish furniture.  Our store in New Canaan, CT, is owned and managed by Chris Meier.  He and his wife, Beth, are also residents of the neighborhood. Our second location is located in Brewster, MA on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
