Tom Loeser has spent his career creating furniture that works like puzzles. His chests and wall cabinets invite us to open the drawers and to figure out how the pieces work. The carved and painted surfaces lead the eye in different directions, creating an optical experience that goes beyond the simple form of the piece. Loeser was trained to be a skilled craftsman, but he prefers to create furniture that is more playful than impressive, offering his viewers a chance to check their "furniture reflexes."
