WHERE ART AND ARCHITECTURE MEET
This collection is personal to David. It began simply as an experimental coffee table, which then inspired the David Calvin Furniture Studio logo. The logo mirrors the initials D and C and grew into the DC Signature Collection. This entire line remains true to the original design concept and now includes several distinct statement pieces.
David was first drawn into woodworking during high school where he also became enamored with the shapes he studied in geometry class. As David grew in his craftsmanship and design skills, his love of patterns became more central to his furniture making. Today, the use of patterns is his hallmark. They are evident in his exacting yet playful and contemporary furniture pieces.
David was first inspired by studying period furniture styles. He developed a deep appreciation of the master craftsmen of previous centuries. Much of his current design owes its underlying form and function to these old and new world masters. These craftsmen motivate David as he designs furniture that uniquely speaks to today’s contemporary period but will endure for multiple generations.
For David, accessories are an entry point where the imagination can run free from the constraints of structure, joints and anatomy. Experimentation is the norm, and patterns and color flow without restraint. Small pieces offer a canvas for big statements. Often these pieces complement other commissioned works.
