Customer Furniture USA is proud to be able to offer the custom furniture pieces of Kevin Kopil, a well respected custom furniture designer and craftsman. For Kevin, its all about the wood. His expertly crafted tables, benches, beds, bookcases, cabinets, desks and seating, evoke the Arts and Crafts period, yet are undeniably modern. Kevin plays off the deliberate sparseness of the earlier style in order to let the beauty and poetry of the wood grain take center stage. These are luxuriously opulent, tactile pieces that, due to their graceful silhouettes, do not overpower.
The designer first picked up his hammer as a ten-year old, working alongside his father in their basement wood shop in Carteret, New Jersey. He studied electronics in college but took some time off to apprentice to master custom furniture craftsman Laurie Smith in rural Vermont. It was his formal education in wood construction, and shortly afterward he dropped electronics and transferred to the University of Vermont to study architectural design. A second apprenticeship, with custom furniture craftsman Mark Pedley, readied Kevin to open his own custom furniture studio in 1988. He offered built-ins and architectural woodworking, and in 1991 introduced his first collection of custom furniture, the Classics. It was Shaker and Danish influenced, though with curved tapered lines.
Custom furniture galleries in Chicago, Maryland, Delaware and Connecticut began to showcase his work and Kevin steadily built a clientele for his handcrafted pieces. He continued to interpret 19th century styles through a modern sensibility. His second series, Floating World, debuted in 1992. It had references to Frank Lloyd Wright, Stickley and traditional Japanese architecture, but its color contrasts of natural cherry accented by ebonized walnut brought it up to the present. This was followed by Glasgow, in 1997, a group of beds, dressers and night tables that paid homage to Mackintosh. At the time he also opened a gallery in TriBeCa in 2002.
Mei Mei is his newest collection, a hybrid of modern and Asian styles. The designer had traveled in China and was enamored both of the architecture and the calligraphy. Mei Mei means little sister and is his daughter's nickname. The collection blends ebonized ash and Australian lacewood.
Kevin's work is sold through fine craft galleries on the east coast and in Chicago. His design studio is based in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where he resides with his wife Marybeth and daughter Kayli.
