Earl Nesbitt Fine Furniture
Earl Nesbitt specializes in original eye-catching statement pieces – sculpture in the form of functional fine art furniture.
Earl trained as a furniture designer in a one year award winning apprenticeship with a master craftsman 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 he showcases the beauty of natural wood in each piece. After his apprenticeship Earl worked for two high end cabinetry/furniture shops. His work from that period 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, DC; as well as many private and commercial projects. During this time Earl was also designing and building his own custom made furniture. In 1995 he opened his own studio.
Throughout his career Earl has enjoyed working with clients on many different styles from contemporary, to Art Deco, to western-style pieces. Earl's unique style is defined by clean, elegant lines, and an eye for proportions and detail. His 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. With each piece Earl tries to push the boundaries of his art form while focusing on longevity – building unique heirloom quality furniture.
