Although Matt Michaelsen is now based in Los Angeles, it was his small hometown of Perry, Iowa that sparked his passion for woodworking. Throughout his childhood, the town of Perry hosted a number of events that brought skilled artists and craftsmen from around the world. From this exposure, he realized he wanted to create beautiful and unique objects with wood. During high school and college, he began perfecting his craft and was soon hired to build custom furniture in Colorado, New York, Oregon and now, California. Glad to call Los Angeles his home, Matt works one-on-one with clients, artists, and designers to create exceptionally distinctive and fine furniture.
