What Sets This Fine Art Furniture Apart
Earl Nesbitt combines his original designs with the highest quality materials and the finest craftsmanship to create fine art furniture in the form of functional sculpture. He trained as a furniture designer in a one year award-winning apprenticeship with a master furniture maker from 1989 to 1990. That early experience as well as the rich history of furniture making in the New Hope area, including George Nakashima and others, contributes to Earl's work as a furniture designer as he showcases the beauty of natural wood in his fine art furniture.

After his apprenticeship, Earl worked for two high-end cabinetry/furniture shops. His work from that time included a wide variety of items: from Park Avenue penthouse suite renovations; to pews at the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.; as well as many private and commercial projects. During this period Earl was also designing and building his own fine art furniture. In 1995 he opened his own studio.

As a furniture designer Earl's style is defined by his use of large slabs and rare highly figured woods combined with clean, elegant lines and an eye for detail. His fine art furniture displays solid wood so that its subtleties can be enjoyed: the way the grain moves through a sculpted piece or the feel of a tabletop or a shaped edge. Throughout his career Earl has worked with many different clients on many different styles — from contemporary, to Art Deco, to western-style pieces.
