Alice Tacheny’s hand crafted furniture is part of the “slow movement”. The slow movement that I am referring to is the idea of saving up to purchase a crafted solid wood piece that will last generations. I like the idea that people are either using vintage furniture or buying pieces made responsibly and with a hand made quality. These pieces fit that bill quite well. I love how you get to see a small glimpse of the brass legs in PLATTE tables. I appreciate discovering the small details, like the pulls on the TILDE dresser.
Alice’s discipline is influenced both by a lifelong love of craft and a deep connection to the objects she designs and creates. Her inspiration derives from experimentation with raw materials and converging forms, and results in designs that embody simplicity and an understated grace. She strives to create pieces with meaning and purpose and to integrate these honest values into her work.
