Funky Furniture Designs by Vincent Thomas Leman
What happens when an artisan takes traditional furniture design and brings his own twist of whimsy and an abstract point of view into play? You get Dust. Dust Furniture that is. In his Valparsiso, Indiana studio, Vincent Thomas Leman creates beautiful handcrafted art furniture that seems to have been flung full-born from Alice’s rabbit hole.
Vincent says, “I typically describe my work as ‘abstract traditional’ furniture. My designs are rooted in traditional furniture design… moldings, arches, feet, etc are all traditional.

The inclusion of traditional furniture elements keeps the furniture familiar and approachable even though the shapes are unorthodox.”
