My ultimate goal has always been to create functional art – classic, stylish and totally unique. Utilizing the natural patterns of the grains of domestic and exotic woods is art in itself and only enhances each and every item. It is a thrill to have my creations show people that furniture can be a work of art as well as a conversation piece. My unique contemporary style of our popular end tables combines the clean Shaker lines with Art Deco influences –
I like to call them “Shaker with Attitude”! As with any art form, one is never finished learning and attempting to master the craft. With that in mind I have developed two new series of furniture designs. The first is a series of Black Cherry live edge designs. The second is a series of contemporary designs with flowing curves and art deco inlay.
The journey continues...
The process starts with you - your decision to have a custom piece of furniture made to have an item fit into a certain space, or to serve a unique purpose. We meet with you in your home or consult via email, telephone, etc, to get measurements and discuss wood choices, style and function ... Sketchups are created and sent
to you for approval and revision... Once a design has been approved, a small deposit will be required to start the next step, Peter getting busy in the studio. Progress photos can be sent - completion times vary dependant on the item... The final creation is delivered and setup in your home! I scour the area to look for local sawyers that will
provide me with our beautiful domestic woods – maple, oak, cherry and black walnut. I enjoy it most to incorporate the natural beauty of these grains with some of the more unique and colorful imported woods – purpleheart, amarello, khaya and padouk, to name a few.
