Dakota Jackson- Artful Furniture
Art & Design
Dakota Jackon has been crafting beautiful, artful furniture for more than three decades now and it's easy to see why he's had such a sustainable career. Jackson has been one of the main contributors to the Art Furniture Movement from the 1970s. His collection is full to bursting with pieces that are shapely, well-crafted and beautiful.
It's refreshing to see such modern, well-crafted pieces with shape, form and sometimes bright pops of color. His collection is mostly subdued though: lots of cherry, maple, ebony or oak stained woods, banana yellow or black leathers and a sofa that resembles a lilac cloud. Art furniture is still going strong these days, it seems, as Jackson has pieces in hotels, residences, museums and galleries all over the country.

or…Take a peak at his New York City brownstone, which was featured last year on Open House NYC. I love to see how designers design and live in their homes, it makes them (and their collection) all the more interesting!
