Howard Hatch

I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Furniture design and Woodworking in 1975. I set up shop in Conway, NH and lived and worked there for 35 years and then worked in Brunswick, Maine for 6 years. During that time I designed and built residential, corporate, institutional and liturgical furniture for locations first in the New England/New York area and later for places as far away as California. My most exciting projects were some of my liturgical suites of furniture which filled the entire dais in a few chapels. The items which sent me to the most far flung and interesting areas were my pool tables. They seemed to be most popular in the western US. I am now working in Portland, Maine where I am happy to continue to accept commissions.

The chairs pictured below are two of my latest projects. The Sherbet Chairs were designed with simplicity and playfulness in mind. The original order was for 6 chairs in 6 different colors. Made of maple with Faux Velvet upholstery and matching toned lacquer colored backs.

The Sherbet Arm Chairs were designed to complete a set of chairs with arm chairs. Available in the same colors as the Sherbet Chairs. The compound curved arms are bent over a sculpted form and then shaped by hand.
