Victoria Young and Quang Hong had different backgrounds when they first crossed paths in Chicago—she was a Canadian who’d studied glassblowing and woodworking at the School of the Art Institute there, and he was a Southern California guy who focused on oil painting, metalwork, and lighting while running his own gallery, called Lotus Keep, in the Windy City. But they bonded over the idea of starting a furniture and home-goods company with a transparent supply chain, and soon took their scheme to Brooklyn where they set up shop under the name Tightrope, crafting wooden chairs and tables, spiky pendant lights, and playful objects like giant wooden dice without paying too much attention to what the industry said they were supposed to do. For them, it’s all about teetering between the old and new, hence the name. As Victoria explains it, “The idea of balance runs throughout Tightrope. We find there is room to both embrace innovation and honor craftsmanship of the past.”
