Furniture Maker David Rasmussen - Aspen Real Life

Furniture Maker David Rasmussen

In my attempt to introduce you to the tremendous of wealth of talent in our Roaring Fork Valley I came across the incredibly talented furniture designer, David Rasmussen. David lost his studio to a fire recently and is having a benefit this Friday at SAW to help him to start over. Believe me, once you watch the interview and see his furniture, you will want to be there to support him!!

I received a press release alerting me to a prominent furniture designer based in Carbondale, Colorado who had lost his studio in a fire. Visiting his website I stayed there for quite a while looking at the photographs of his beautiful furniture and his breathtaking treehouse designs. I knew then that I had to help David Rasmussen raise money for his new studio. He must continue to create his whimsical designs.

Prominent Furniture Designer in Carbondale

[su_quote cite=”David Rasmussen Website”]Always “driven by artistic design and aesthetic value,” David’s avant-garde approach to developing his style included joining Vermont-based Forever Young Treehouses where he traveled as the lead carpenter on handicap-accessible projects so “anyone can climb a tree and take a walk in the woods” in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati and Pennsylvania. David returned to his roots in furniture after a few years of building treehouses, bringing with him the organic understanding that is required for building in the trees. [/su_quote]

Temporarily David has been working out of a workshop at Anderson Ranch where he once held residency. I drove up there to conduct an interview with him and you can watch the interview below.

Please support David by attending his benefit occurring this Friday evening, January 13th, from 6-9pm at SAW in Carbondale on 978 Euclid Ave. (SAW stands for Studio for Arts + Works).

David is currently taking commissions for his exceptional pieces and works directly with interior designers and architects to bring their ideas to life.

Repost: ONE NEED NOT practice yoga to appreciate the deity Lakshmi, who sits with peaceful strength in a small alcove at True Nature Healing Arts in Carbondale. ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠LAKSHMI seems comforting, perplexing, inspiring – a woman turned quietly inward while also responding powerfully to the outer world. ⁠⁠⁠⁠“Lakshmi is the Goddess of good fortune, fertility, prosperity, and joy,” Deva Shantay, co-creator of TNHA shares. “Her name means to know and understand your purpose.” ⁠⁠⁠⁠As it happens, each of the six women we feature in this year’s Mothers’ Day tribute spoke of Lakshmi without naming Her. For She embodies the owl’s ability to work and prevail in confusing times. She brings balance. Spiritual and material; activity and stillness. ⁠It is a gift of True Nature that we found ourselves seeing these qualities in each of the women featured this year in MOUNTAIN PARENT's Annual Mother's Day Tribute: ⁠⁠⁠⁠Deva Shantay of True Nature Healing ArtsGail Schwartz of Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley⁠⁠Bella Collier of Legacy Dance CompanyErin Cuseo of Erin's Acres FarmJillian Livingston of Aspen Real LifeKathleen Wanatowicz of PR Studio CO⁠⁠Each, a leader in her field. Each, raising children while giving birth to her own purpose. ⁠⁠⁠⁠Each was photographed for our MOMPRENEUR Mother's Day Tribute at True Nature Healing Arts by portrait artist Sarah Kuhn. ⁠⁠Imagine the tranquility of an already-serene place. Imagine slowing down and breathing. Being present in conversation with women whom we invited, one-at-a-time, such as it is. We heard of their ideas, their concerns, their children, their plans.⁠⁠⁠⁠In our MOMPRENEUR series that follows, we will share their stories in their own words. We surely felt the presence of the Goddess. She sat still and listened and so did we.⁠⁠______________________________________________________Thank you Mountain Parent Magazine for spotlighting women in our valley who have done what they can to bring the community together and help others while also raising their own children.⁠⁠#celebratedwomen#celebratingmoms#womenempoweringwomen #mompreneur#mothersdaytributr#tributetomoms#goddessvibes ...
