Michael Todd Smith breathes new life into every project, creating something new and surprising for his clients.  He mixes his sense of the historical value of reclaimed wood with his knowledge and skill of working with metal. 

Michael is a furniture designer and custom fabricator who graduated from DePaul University with a degree in sculpture and art history.  Michael’s interaction with clients goes from concept to 3D renderings to finished product.  Each step requires continuous problem solving, ingenuity and innovation.  That challenge is what he loves best about what he does.

Craftsmanship and traditional techniques are important to Michael.  He chooses to work not only with sustainable materials, but also with products that have an everlasting and timeless image.  

In his own furniture collection, Michael brings an asymmetrical perspective to traditional design, reinventing the rules of balance, form and function.  He believes that quality equates strong materials, sensible design & flawless craftsmanship. He makes a variety of domestic objects that incorporate a mixture of materials like indigenous reclaimed wood and repurposed stone, glass and steel. 

In addition, Michael produces custom-designed furniture for designers, residential homeowners and commercial instillations. Recently, he began making custom hand forged brackets, door pulls, handles, accessories and hardware.
