John Dodd has been self employed creating Designer Made Furniture for more than thirty five years. Never building from static plans,
his furniture begins with a concept doodle, then develops into a rendering which often evolves into a scaled model for refinements in proportion and form.
From there the process, materials and mistakes inform the design.
Most pieces are done one at a time and favorites are often repeated with subtle variations.
John designs furniture using wood as the primary material often accented with metal, concrete and glass.
Is a series of entryway pieces that John continues to visit.
They are designed for corporate lobbies or residential entries.
The series started in 1996 with a bench and a freestanding mirror set from reclaimed Douglas Fir.
SInce this first set John usually adds one or two new pieces each year to this contemporary line of fine furniture.
Now the series includes exquisite hall tables, planters, lamps, display cabinets, benches and mirrors. They are free standing or wall mounted which is perfect for places where space is at a premium in urban interiors, lofts, townhouses or condominiums.
