"Our collaboration with Artful Home has been a wonderful experience over the past two years," Tom Dumke, Owner of Thomas William Furniture said. "Working with people who truly understand art has made all the difference. Their visit today further enhanced our working relationship as we learned more about them and they learn more about us." Three pieces of Thomas William Furniture will be featured in Artful Home’s Fall Catalog with a distribution to more than 600,000 homes.
Tom handcrafts solid wood furniture that is Shaker inspired and is traditional with a modern flare. The clean line of the Shaker form inspires the design, creating pieces sized proportionally for today's needs. The Shakers have had a profound influence on Tom's work: their clean unadorned simplicity, functionalism and craftsmanship. He also is influenced with a deep respect for the furniture craftsmen of the 17th and 18th centuries. Their knowledge of form, balance, joinery and of wood movement is evident in the pieces of fine furniture that still exist today.
