FAQs

What's a protea?

Glad you asked! A protea (pronounced like “pro-te-uh” - or /ˈproʊtiːə/ for the phonetically inclined) is the a genus of flower native to the Southern Hemisphere. South Africa is home to hundreds of kinds of these gorgeous flowers, the largest of which is the king protea: the national flower of South Africa.

Named after the Greek god Proteus, the son of Poseidon who could change his shape at will, the protea symbolizes courage and transformation.

Where does the name Protea & Pine come from?

Stephen is named after his great grandfather who was a prize-winning protea grower. We chose the name Protea & Pine to honor both South Africa and Colorado, two wildly beautiful places we call home.

Where is Protea & Pine located?

Protea & Pine is proudly based in Denver, Colorado’s Northeast Park Hill neighborhood. Though we don’t have a bricks-and-mortar location, we can meet with clients who have commissioned a custom piece at our wood shop by appointment.

Do you do custom work or take custom orders?

Sure do! We primarily focus on custom dining tables, desk tops, floating shelves and the like, but we’re always interested in learning about unique projects. We no longer produce tables in bulk (due to space constraints), and we aren’t set up to build chairs. Here's where to submit a request for a custom woodworking quote.

Hardwood bath caddies are available for custom order here on our website.

We also source unique pieces and ready-to-ship gifts in our online shop. We're always dreaming, building, and sourcing, so remember to check back frequently!

How far in advance do I need to book my custom job?

We’re blessed to be busy, which is why we ask that you request your job in advance. We’re currently booking 3 to 4 months out. If we can accommodate sooner, we will definitely let you know!
