DESIGNS FOR YOUR HOME

Welcome!

about DougLAS

My great joy in making something is just that, creating something. It may be furniture, sculpture, or perhaps a wall piece.  The magic of creation begins with being curious, which leads to an idea, which then leads to elements of design. This is a thoroughly joyful process. Nearly anything that can be dreamed is possible.

“I am so enjoying the sideboard you made for me!  It was such fun to work with you on the design of the piece.  You made it possible for the piece to transition from some vague ideas about what I wanted into a beautiful and functional piece of art.  You were incredibly responsive and patient with me as we discussed the design and materials. Thank you for finding the figured cherry that we selected--it is gorgeous!”

- Chad and Beth W.

We commissioned a coffee table from Doug for our Great Room. Throughout the design process, Doug was very receptive to our creative ideas and presented several options for us to consider.  We met at his shop to see some of his previous work, look at materials and techniques, and to see sketches.  Even though we changed our minds a couple of times, Doug was always gracious and incorporated our new ideas, as well as suggesting his own.  Once the building stage began, Doug worked quickly and we had a lovely table in our house in no time!”


Douglas’ pieces are masterfully crafted and a visual delight. After accepting my project, he emailed updates and photos of his progress. I am delighted to have found Douglas and North Light Art Furniture and will treasure my three tables for many years!
