Fine Art for Living

by ShackletonThomas

Exquisite Handmade Furniture

In an age where speed is prized over quality and character, where age-old artistic traditions have been compromised by mass automation, ShackletonThomas has remained true to its roots.  The company is one of the few remaining of its size in the United States that still manufactures each piece, one by one, using extensive handwork. Each piece is made using traditional processes by one master craftsperson from beginning to end.  Pieces are thoughtfully designed to highlight the beauty of hand craftsmanship.  Made from natural materials of the highest quality, furniture from the workshops of ShackletonThomas is made to be treasured for generations. Each piece is signed and dated by the maker.
