Furniture designed and built with a strong hint of the Greene & Greene Craftsman style.
There is nobody in our industry that understands the impact of exposed joinery more than Darrell Peart, a master craftsman based in Seattle. Peart draws inspiration from the work of past masters , such as James Krenov, John Ruskin, and William Morris. But he is recognized internationally for his own masterpieces, many of which are executed in the spirit of Pasadena Architects, Charles and Henry Greene. Building on their legacy, he has created an instantly recognizable and often imitated style
“His work is considered in the top echelon of American Studio Furniture… Considered one of the top furniture designers in the country.”
“Darrell Peart finds satisfaction turning dreams into reality with his finely-crafted furniture that is worthy of Greene and Greene’s finest Pasadena Bungalows.”
“Darrell certainly has a strong fan base of both clients – who can wait as long a year for a piece – and woodworkers, who look to him for inspiration and instruction.”
“The Guru of Greene and Greene.”
“That’s what I really enjoy. Studying Greene and Greene in minute detail. Writing the book has given me ideas for things I want to try. It’s made me appreciate the genius of Charles Greene, but also makes me wonder where all his ideas came from,” Darrell Peart.
“Author and very accomplished furnituremaker Darrell Peart.”
“Darrell Peart’s furniture is more obviously Greene & Greene, including reproductions. His Gamble dining table is a wonderful achievement.”
“The popularity of Arts & Crafts style furniture just seems to grow, as more and more designer-makers adapt its details to original works. Darrell Peart is an authority on those details.”
