Bill Bale, Furniture Designer

Artist Statement
I use the past for design inspiration, but build for the present. I specialize in modern interpretations that respect the fundamental look of 100 year-old originals. I include elements such as vertical lines, square motifs, corbels & broad over-hanging tops familiar in the work of the masters, but I also keep in mind I am making furniture to fit modern needs. Comfort and convenience are equally important as aesthetics.
