Silas Kopf Woodworking is a custom furniture shop specializing in Marquetry decoration. Marquetry is the traditional craft of piecing together different species of wood, and occasionally other materials, to form pictures or graphic designs. We build objects to the highest standards using time-tested techniques and quality materials.
Silas Kopf has been making furniture since 1973. He is a graduate of Princeton University with a degree in architecture. He was an apprentice to Wendell Castle for two years. His shop is in Easthampton, Massachusetts.
In 1988 he was the recipient of a Craftsman’s Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Subsequently he studied traditional marquetry technique at the Ecole Boulle in Paris. His work is in museums and private collections around the world.
