These furniture pieces are designed and made by Judson Beaumont from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Judson Beaumont was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1960.
Judson studied art in Vancouver BC at Capilano College and graduated from the 3-D department of the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 1985.
He sed about time in art school:
“I never did art classes as a child, it wasn’t until graduating high school that I started to look into it as a profession.
Art School taught me that I could come up with my own ideas instead of building off of established designs.
I looked at what was out there, and I started to bend it and twist it and shape it.
A person must dare to drift away from the tired and true in order to give a piece energy and interest.
Be influenced and inspired by the norm, and then challenge it, change it, melt it, stretch it, alter it for the better.”
In 1985 he founded Straight Line Designs Inc., creating one-of-a-kind furniture pieces that almost always lean towards the whimsical and unusual .
The majority of Straight Lines work is commercial and includes store fixtures, trade show booths, commercial and movie props, and play areas for childrens hospitals.
But the company also builds custom pieces for private residences. Judson Beaumont: “I found a lot of adults who don’t want to grow up either. They like to have fun stuff, too.”
