Ten years ago, Michael and Jennifer started, ‘Designs Adrift’. A small business based out of their home, on a peninsula, in Maine. A business with the desire to create unique furnishings and art from a locally sourced material; driftwood.
Michaels’ 25 years as a carpentry and furniture maker, along with the encouragement and support of Jennifer, led him to work with this often overlooked material – driftwood.
His first project was a personal one – to build a driftwood bed. Once complete, the two decided he should make something else and the business evolved from there…Maine collected mussel shells were incorporated, lobster warp was utilized and natural fabrics were sourced – a unique line of furniture and art was born.
Michael Fleming Designs Adrift has been featured in the New York Times, Coastal Living Magazine, DownEast Magazine, Closer, Trend Design Magazine along with many other local publications.
They work with local and international design firms, private buyers and art collectors.
Commercial installations include, ‘Infinity’, a 13’ driftwood tree in the showroom of Rolls Royce Motor Cars Sterling, Virginia as well as numerous ‘Herringbone’ restaurants from Las Vegas to Waikiki and the high-rise luxury apartment/condo complex, Amaray Las Olas, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Custom work is our specialty.

Let us bring the Maine coast to you -wherever that may be…
