Coming from an engineering and business background, the development and construction of form has always fascinated me. And living in Salem Massachusetts for 22 years has instilled in me an appreciation and respect for the furnituremakers of the 17th and 18th centuries, who lived and worked only steps from my front door. Now living in Boston, home in the 1700's to the Seymours and other master furnituremakers. Some of the finest furniture in America was crafted here. And still is.
