Dust Furniture is a collection of studio furniture from craft artist Vincent Thomas Leman. Vincent has built one-of-a-kind pieces for years, but released this line to accommodate the demand for reproducible versions of his work. To learn more about Vincent or the furniture itself, please click on the links below.
A key part of Vincent's creation process is the integration of function into the form. He strives to create furniture that is functional to the degree that it may be successfully integrated into daily life, yet--equally important--provides a spark to brighten the routine of daily life. He finds joy in discovering new ways to mix art and life, and to make it accessible.
Vincent's work has been described as 'abstract traditional furniture.' Each piece is essentially a traditional piece of furniture that is stretched, curved, stacked and stepped to fit his design intentions. While wood is the material employed to make his furniture, Vincent considers his actual medium to be 'traditional furniture.' The classical root of each piece helps maintain its identity as furniture and keeps the work familiar and approachable despite the unusual shapes.
All of our furniture is skillfully handcrafted in the Dust studio in Valparaiso, Indiana.
