Contemporary studio furniture design +build. Pirollo Design brings forward a unique form of contemporary styled furniture incorporating contemporary and modern elements. As designer, Norman Pirollo, has acquired an education from contemporary artisans as well as a breadth of insight into both the visual and decorative arts.
Norman selects the highest quality and most dramatically figured woods as components of his unique designs. Design, wood preparation and finishing are a large part of his work and therefore he devotes considerable time to these stages. His work has been featured in books such as “Studio Furniture: Today’s Leading Woodworkers”, “Wood Art Today 2″, “500 Cabinets” , “Rooted: Creating a Sense of Place: Contemporary Studio Furniture” as well as in "Fine Woodworking", "Woodwork Magazine", “Ottawa Life”, “Ottawa Citizen”, “Panoram Italia”, “NICHE Magazine” and other publications. He also authors woodworking related courses and tutorials at WoodSkills. He has recently authored two woodworking books, “Start Your Own Woodworking Business” and “From Hi-Tech to Lo-Tech: A Woodworker’s Journey” available through WoodSkills. He also maintains a design + build blog at The Refined Edge.
