In anticipation of the 5th Annual Fall Woodworker’s Fair on October 21 and 22nd, Bailey Wood Products is pleased to introduce some of our new vendors. This week’s vendor is Josh Schmidt of LivingOriginal® with Schmidt’s Furniture Design Company®
As a Bailey customer who avidly collects live edge walnut in anticipation of his next project, Josh is also one of our youngest vendors. It is always a pleasure to see succeeding generations bring their own vision to the wood shop. To say that Schmidt’s furniture imparts an element of originality to anyone’s home would be an understatement. Combining wood with industrial metal elements elevates his furnishings beyond the traditional craft into a modern art form. Josh not only coaxes the inherent beauty out of the wood he chooses for each piece of furniture, he designs and fabricates all the metal components as well.
Previously employed in a cabinet making shop, Josh loves the challenge and complexity of each new project that his original furniture designs require. Schmidt’s Furniture Design Company® primarily does work on a custom order basis. Please stop by his booth at the Fall Woodworker’s Fair for an introduction to the Industrial Design style of furnishings created by Josh Schmidt.
