Alice Tacheny did not just happen into the world of furniture design. It could be said that it was always part of her destiny. Tacheny's design aesthetics and devotion to high quality craftsmanship became instilled in her at an early age. Both her mother and father were artists who filled the house with an ever rotating mix of handmade artwork. Later, Tacheny apprenticed under a traditional woodworker in Chicago. It was during that time that she learned more about Shaker design philosophy and developed her own design aesthetics. "I like to highlight how two separate forms converge and work together, whether it's a seamless joint that is evident only through a change in grain direction or how a handle intersects a drawer and becomes a part of the overall function," she explains. "I think the clarity that is expressed is inherently beautiful!"
Armed with an unique design perspective and furniture fabrication training, Tacheny went on to start Alice Tacheny Design. Unlike other design firms, the Alice Tacheny Design employs local talented craftspeople who make each piece by hand. In addition, Tacheny strives to produce furniture that has a low environmental impact. As part of their eco-friendly approach, the design firm uses domestic hardwoods and natural oils during the fabrication process.
Alice Tacheny Design furniture is not for everyone. Those looking for "cash and carry" items, may miss out on all of the amazing details of her furniture. Tacheny's furniture reflects her own individual outlook on modern furniture design. Though pieces are simple in their structure, they have been fabricated to last a lifetime.View other products by Alice Tacheny
