Aaron Durnin’s mission as a furniture designer and metal artist is to create pieces that will be timeless. His work juxtaposes vintage woods with modern steel as he intuitively combines the two materials in an attempt to create balance and continuity—allowing the wood and steel to dictate how the piece will go.  Becoming part of a piece of furniture is only the latest event in the life of some of the salvage parts he uses, so it is essential to him that each piece develops organically and has a unique voice. 

Aaron is a 2002 graduate the Rhode Island School of Design, where he received his BFA in Furniture Design. A Nashville native, his work has been shown at the Art House, SQFT Gallery, and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair.
