About ChrisMartinFurniture

Chris Martin Furniture is a small company, consisting of : artist and creator, Chris Martin,and his 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 of producing art furniture pieces." 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 program 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

Off to India…

Chris is off to India for a design residency. He’s assisting artisans there with product development. I’ll join him in a few weeks to meet some of the folks and see some of the sights. Can’t wait to see the influence of this experience in Chris’s next works!
