This is the first of a three part series on designer maker Craig Thibodeau’s recent studio furniture commissions for one of his residential clients. In this post I’ll present two of his Cherry & Carpathian Elm themed sets: A dining room table with six chairs and a desk & chair set. This series will illustrate how a client can become enthralled with the interactive experience of creating fine furniture with a designer maker such as Craig Thibodeau.
Andrew Varah (d. 2012) leaves behind a loving family and a fine legacy in his vocation as a furniture designer maker. In May 2011 he received the Worshipful Company’s lifetime achievement award in recognition of an outstanding career within the furniture industry in the UK and in 2012 he was granted the title of “Honorary Liveryman”, the highest accolade that the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers can bestow.
