Thom Walsh graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in Industrial Design. While at RISD, he studied furniture design and woodworking with Tage Frid. After having a successful architectural woodworking firm in New York City for a decade, he moved to West Stockbridge in 1992, where he has a studio-workshop next to his home.
Using traditional and modern techniques, Thom works with exceptional veneers and woods of the highest quality in both a classic and a contemporary context. He brings an artist’s pallette of finishes to his designs, ranging from dark and rich natural shellac, to bright lacquered dyes, to deep-colored “hand-rubbed” poly-tung oil. Thom Walsh’s work exemplifies the highest disciplines of furniture design and creation.
