Ten years ago, upon my commission, John Strauss Furniture Design created what I refer to as a contemporary arts and crafts desk. It remains an amazing work of art that continues to garner interest and positive comments from my clients. When I recently moved offices, I asked John Strauss Furniture Design to build additional matching office furniture that ergonomically addresses the way I conduct my practice today. Being an avid collector of antiques, I have no doubt that what John Strauss has created for me will be coveted generations from now and will have great market value. The artistic design elements inherent in the products of John Strauss Furniture Design, the precious woods and veneers that he employs, and the quality construction which are evident in all of my furniture are not only a source of pride to me, but evidence the work of a master in his field.

We asked John to design a one-of-a-kind coffee table that would complement our living room's clean lines. Instead of simply delivering a piece of furniture, he included us in each step of the creative design and complex production process. The result? We are quite attached to the carefully crafted, beautiful, and functional piece of art John produced for us. It is destined to be a family heirloom.

"I want to thank you for the beautiful work you did in creating the night stands for our California project. They are fabulous in the master bedroom. The finish could not be more perfect . . . We were very pleased with the process, the design, the quality, the packing and shipping and the final outcome."
- Charise Buckley, Full Circle Design Group
John Strauss and I have collaborated on many projects of the last several years, in both contemporary and traditional design aesthetics. His eagerness to experiment with new techniques and finishes allows construction ensures that my clients and I are thrilled with the end result.
