Taima Krayem, Furniture Maker

I'm a furniture maker and bowl turner. I’m a graduate of North Bennet Street School,  so I'm trained in building early American furniture. I have an immense admiration of traditional furniture and enjoy basing personal design in its example while exploring design possibilities that are more modern.
