About Us

Chris Martin Furniture is a small company, consisting of : artist and creator, Chris Martin, and wife Tammi Martin, who handles the office side of things.

The business was created in 1995 (then known as Art Forms Furniture) in order to, as Tammi puts it, “support Chris’ habit.” The location outside of Aspen, Colorado, was not only scenic, but also a good business platform to begin on. The couple relocated to Ames, Iowa in 1999 where Chris became head of the wood design area that he graduated from at Iowa State University. In addition to teaching, Chris creates work in his studio at home where he freely continues to develop pieces that push to the fringe of furniture design.
