I came across the website of the US Furniture Society It has an annual conference with exhibitions. It has blogs, but Showing is maintained best. Although it has no public member list, it is possible to learn something about who is who in the furniture craft in the US, also from its FaceBook Page.
Between their photos I found this beautiful Bench Siblings by Libby Schrum. It was on exhibition at the 2010 Conference at MIT. Unfortunately I haven’t discovered Libby’s own site, because I’m curious about other work she may have made.
I also noticed that I have featured some prominent members of this esteemed association here on Chair Blog already. There will be more in the future.
To give you an impression what they do, I give you here a couple of posts about the 2010 conference:
- Woodworkers Magazine: Furniture Society Day 1
- Idem: Furniture Society Day 2
- Idem: Photos from Furniture Society
- A post by their esteemed member Vladimir Kagan: The Furniture Society’s Annual Meeting at MIT
Ah, thanks to Brian Fireman‘s comment here below, I looked again and found Libby’s Website
And I have to share this funny video by Hayami Arakawa:

You can search the entire members listing of The Furniture Society directly from their website. In the upper left corner click on “Directory”…
Each member may upload images to this directly as well as link directly to their individual website from The Furniture Society website.
Have fun – Brian
Thank you. I’ve seen it, but then you either must know the name you are looking for or have alternative means of pinpointing great chair designers who are members:-)
Ah but I looked again and found Libby’s website.
