Chad is a Kennett, MO native, calling the Memphis area home for over 15 years. Chad's passion for custom and original furniture developed by watching his father, a master carpenter, builder, and jack of all trades, create beautifully built cabinetry, and furniture throughout his life. Chad uses solid and durable wood to create his original pieces and enjoys building rustic, farmhouse furniture. He has built side tables, entertainment stands, consoles, dining room farm tables, master suite headboards, and bed frames, and office desks. He continues to learn superior woodworking skills from his father, Alan.
Lauren and Chad's approach and output are constantly evolving as they hone their personal style and talents. They draw inspiration from their farm, located in Nesbit, Mississippi, 20 miles south of Memphis, TN. They refuse to be typecast and work hard to ensure their talent, art, craft, and style evolve with each project they complete. No matter what, Abbott Art Market approaches all projects and custom designs with complete enthusiasm, and dedication.
