"My motivation is to find beautiful wood and other natural materials which I can shape and assemble to produce something that serves the needs of my customers and which projects a quiet harmony with its surroundings. I am inspired by Japanese design and a culture that respects craftsmanship and refines craft to the level of art."
- Paul Tuller
Paul Tuller has been designing and building custom furniture and architectural elements for more than 25 years. The majority of his work is inspired by traditional Japanese design and made using Japanese hand tools. From his workshop in Southwestern New Hampshire, Paul has created interior spaces and furnishings that have been installed throughout New England and as far away as Florida and California.
Projects have included making furniture, shoji screens, fusuma and wood doors, wooden soaking tubs, tokonoma alcoves, grill-work and wood paneled ceilings. Every element of Paul's work features precise joinery, hand planed surfaces and carefully selected woods that produce a clean and sophisticated look.
