Shapiro Design Group: Studio Furniture and Accessories

Shapiro Design creates Studio Furniture and a variety of other custom artisan products and accessories. We are interested in working with architects, designers, and public art venues. We welcome commissions on any scale.

In our work we experiment with assemblage that allows us to edit, slice, and recombine our materials.The designs are one-of-a-kind art objects that often incorporate materials such as native woods responsibly harvested from our property, exotic woods, aluminum, copper, wood turnings, recycled parts, collage, handmade tiles, silver, nails, and glass. Some of our work reflects the natural twists, turns, and cracks as we seek to blur the lines between sculpture and furniture while other pieces reflect more geometric concepts.

For over 20 years, Shapiro Design Group has focused on commissioned work.In the past have exhibited in the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore, Maryland, the Fine Furnishings Show in Providence, Rhode Island, and the Society for Arts & Crafts in Boston, MA.

Our work appears in many private collections, and in the corporate art collections of Neiman Marcus, and The McDonald's Corporation. Our work appears in the Lark Book Series 500 Cabinets: A Showcase of Art and Design. Currently we are creating commissioned Ceremonial Vessels to serve as memorials and to celebrate life cycle events. Our smaller accessories can be found at Domain: Laura Hodges Studio in historic Catonsville, Md. Please tour our "studio section" on the website.
