From the time John opened his shop in 1984, he has proven himself as a passionate pioneer in furniture- making with a drive for both tradition of the craft and technology. Based in suburban Chicago, John and his team of craftsmen work closely together throughout the design, development and production in his state of the art shop. They start with hand sketches that they develop into detailed 2D drawings and 3D models. After those details are set, the fabrication starts. Quality materials such as domestic and exotic solid woods and veneers, lacquers, shagreen, parchment, metals, cast bronze and glass are meticulously transformed into expertly crafted furniture and cabinetry. All workmanship is individually handcrafted by John and his team from individual pieces to custom cabinetry and millwork. You will find John and his craftsmen to be professional, honest, creative and enjoyable to work with. When John is not at work in his shop he enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, listening to music or landscaping his home.
