In 1971, after studying art at the York Academy of Arts in York Pennsylvania, Robert Harrington opened a furniture repair and refinishing business in Phoenixville Pennsylvania to supplement his artwork. As the business grew, a greater demand for furniture repair prompted a need for the study of drafting and furniture construction. While working for other furniture shops, construction and design became the focus of his learning. With an innate impulse for design, love of craft and a background in the fine arts Robert began his own furniture studio. Over time the furniture become more sculptural and today the work consists of one of a kind, limited edition, and custom projects.
Jesse Harrington Studied sculpture at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Having grown up in and around his fathers wood shop had a profound effect on his approach to art. However, his true interest in furniture began as an extension of his sculptural studies. Taking on side jobs through college frequently brought him back to his fathers shop, where he began to design his own work. Seeking the expertise of his father led to the partnership that exists today. Jesse now works co designing and building with his father Robert Harrington.
