PHILADELPHIA- The annual Philadelphia Furniture Show, held April 8-10, will showcase handmade furniture from Philadelphia’s top craftsman. Entries include artisan pieces such as Bruce Schuettinger’s “Mosaic” tables, which are crafted from 40 varieties of wood and evoke expressionist painting. Student pieces from the Wood Program at the University of the Arts will also be featured. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk to submitting furniture makers.
