Carol Jackson

Carol Jackson Contemporary Furniture

"The warmth of an exquisite piece of wood used in a contemporary design that showcases the wood's features—that to me is a thing of beauty."

Carol Jackson's contemporary furniture designs are influenced by the characteristics of the featured wood: the grain of ash, the warmth of cherry. Wood is a unique but imperfect medium, and Jackson enjoys the challenge of placing each piece of wood in its best light. She develops a cohesive concept based on a mental image, and then brings it to life in pieces with contrasting forms.

Jackson dramatizes contrasts such as warm/cool, matte/gloss, light/dark, linear/curved, and horizontal/vertical to make her furniture vibrant and lively. She combines materials in unconventional ways that often require innovative joinery techniques, which she engineers and tests as she develops a design. Jackson uses top-quality power tools to achieve precision and repeatability in construction.

After earning degrees in physics, math, and computer science and working for 25 years in software engineering, Jackson followed her heart to the study of architecture and furniture design. Through a three-year graduate program at the University of Oregon, she focused on furniture design and received a master of architecture degree. With more than 35 years of woodworking experience, she brings her designs to reality.
