David Rasmussen Design
by David Rasmussen Design
Handcrafted in Colorado
David Rasmussen is one of only a handful of designers who also fabricates his elegant and detailed work. Concentrating mostly on furniture and architectural built-ins, David practices his design and fabrication in his studio in Carbondale, Colorado.
Raised and educated in New England, David was exposed to the Northeast’s rich culture of fine furniture making from a young age. Trained by furniture masters Wayne Marcoux and Dan Mosheim, David learned about composition and fabrication techniques. Danish, Ming Dynasty, and contemporary American studio furniture where the focus of David’s studies in furniture as he progressed in his career.
Always “driven by artistic design and aesthetic value,” David’s avant-garde approach to developing his style included joining Vermont-based Forever Young Treehouses where he traveled as the lead carpenter on handicap-accessible projects so “anyone can climb a tree and take a walk in the woods” in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati and Pennsylvania. David returned to his roots in furniture after a few years of building treehouses, bringing with him the organic understanding that is required for building in the trees.
Currently, David is working with his highly trained craftsmen to produce elegant furniture for clients all over the US. David’s recent work focuses on the relationships of his furniture and their surroundings. David’s furniture is a response to contemporary design and inspirations from the past.View All Items By David Rasmussen Design Custom Design Center
