    Dear Furniture Aficionado:

    As you know furniture is integral to our lives. We use it and, when it is designed and made well, we marvel at its ability to functionally and aesthetically enrich our existence.

    We are inviting you to help support The Furniture Society, the premier non-profit organization that brings together furniture designers, makers, collectors, curators, educators, manufacturers, and scholars from around the world to fulfill our important mission:

    Advancing the art of furniture making by inspiring creativity, promoting excellence, & fostering an understanding of this art & its place in society

    By sponsoring a variety of programs and projects that contribute to the education and enrichment of members and the public, The Furniture Society champions excellence, refinement, responsibility, and craftsmanship in furniture.

    The Furniture Society connects all types of furniture designers and makers around the world through conferences, symposia, exhibitions, trade shows, publication, member exchange, awards, social media, and collaborations with like-missioned organizations.

    Please consider a tax-deductible financial contribution to help us fulfill our worthy mission. Your donation will help us leverage others’ support, and together we can continue to encourage and promote the very finest furniture design and construction.

    You can do this rather easily at our web site – Click on DONATE and complete the simple form. You may pay by credit card, debit card, or PayPal. And you can always mail us a check. You also may pledge your support for payment(s) at a later date.

    Every gift matters, and we appreciate your thoughtful consideration of our request.
