A Better Way To Shop
Online For Furniture
In 2011 Cosmo Barbaro Furniture came into existence. Cosmo Barbaro Furniture primary focus is on original one-of-a-kind furniture for clients, collectors and galleries.
Whether it is an individual commission or a custom built-in project, all of my work utilizes the best domestic/exotic lumber and hardware available.
My work falls into two categories; my own personal designs and client’s ideas that are made into reality. The design aesthetic is minimal and puts a spotlight on attention to detail, craftsmanship and durability. Twisted floor lamps https://www.cosmobarbaro.com/product/espresso-chest-of-drawers-tall-boy-version/are a perfect example of this. Each new design has one of these types of joinery; mortise and tenons, bridle joint, dovetails, or finger joints. We create furniture that will last 100 year or more.
This is only possible through the proper selection engineering and implementation of the traditional joinery. I strive for the best craftsmanship possible and balance that with a design process that focuses on simplicity and attention to detail.
All designs are original and thought out in my mind, put on paper in the form of a sketch and then drawn in a computer program prior to building. After the client signs the contract and gives approval on the final design then the piece is built to full scale.
I work closely with each client to develop their ideas into reality. I get the most satisfaction out of making my clients happy. My work has been in numerous galleries and publications across the nation.
