This September Judson is back at IDS West, this time with Vern and his friends, along with a few little new arrivals.
The IDS West Show runs from September 19-22nd at the Vancouver Convention Center West.
Judson Beaumont was asked by Elements Mall to work on a display combining the Wizard of Oz and Judson’s signature whimsical style of furniture for Summer Delight 2013.
In March 2013 Judson was contacted by the Nikkei National Museum to participate in their 5th Annual BLOOM Art Auction Fundraiser. A variety of Vancouver based artists and designers were challenged to take a simple shape and make it into something unique! As you can image this was just the task for Jud and before long he had a stack of sketches on his desk! Traditional dolls have stylized faces and sometime look like characters from popular movies.
There is something very unique, and playfully summer about his final design and it was a hit at the show!
What would your Kokeshi doll look like?

This custom pine beetle cabinet unit was built for a private client.
Using reclaimed pine beetle wood, cherry legs and a granite top this project shows the subtle, classic side of Judsons designs.

Judson recently went on a trip to visit some friends in LA and was surprised with this portait that Sam painted. Featuring the Cracked Cabinet, Bridge Bench, Jud’s beloved dog Dewey and of course Judson with carrot in hand (the carrot represents the influence of Bugs Bunny cartoons on Jud’s design style).
For a designer that is all about one of a kind furniture, this on of a kind piece of art is the perfect gift. Thanks Sam!
Judson loves an opportunity to work on one of a kind pieces, it’s what he has built his company on. When the project carries a significant meaning to the client he really steps up to the plate to produce a piece that is above and beyond.
This Book Table was designed and built for a private client to honor a family member that has passed. Titled “Resistance & Liberation” it is made from solid wood that has been custom stained, soft close hinges (no pinched fingers), perfectly cut book pages, as well as custom engraving on the spine and front cover.
Judson stands with clients as they share in the excitement of the reveal.
