Create new table designs for furniture showroom in Richmond, VT

I am a furniture designer and maker. I lean towards simplicity and do my best to mimic Vermont culture within my work. Keeping furniture aesthetically pleasing while usable is the main goal of my work.

Project description

I have a showroom in Richmond VT, and my goal is to outfit it with all my designs. i have taken a few years to work on a collection and it is soon to be finished. The idea would be to take all my designs and display them in my showroom. I believe having this money for wood will allow me to continue designing new pieces that the world has yet to see. With the price of wood, it is difficult to make extra designs to have on display. This would allow some freedom to create work without using all my own money.
