ShackletonThomas designs are interpretations of historic, classic styles from around the world with a sensibility to simplicity and delicate detailing. Further, our designs are influenced by Charlie's heritage in Ireland and England, as well as world travels, and living in Vermont.
The furniture is handmade in the traditional manner, and it is this handshaping that gives the furniture its wonderful vitality. The handmade process, including the original wood, tools, and maker, inspires our pieces most; each piece is designed to highlight the beauty of hand craftsmanship. When you sit in a ShackletonThomas chair you may find yourself following the delicate and smooth curve of its arm with you fingers. Seated at one of the many tables, you will feel the traces of the handplane and notice the inherent beauty of the wood from which the table was made. The end result is a classically designed piece with a warm, smooth finish that brings out the resolution of the grain, the rich, deep color of the wood, and the personality and history of its designer and maker.
