Whether used for a cup of coffee or a dash of scotch, or even a cup to put breadsticks or even some Achar-these are some seriously Substantial cups made in collaboration with David Rasmussen Furniture Design. Their unique design is not just gorgeous, but the wood cup functions to keep drinks colder longer than glass—or hotter, if that’s your cup of coffee. These special order, hand-crafted luxury glasses perfectly align with my Substantial values-quality over quality. Buy less, buy better. Enjoy life because the way you eat reflects how you live...The perfect splurging gift for someone you love.
About Furniture Maker David Rasmussen:
David wasRaised and educated in New England, David was exposed to the Northeast’s rich culture of fine furniture making from a young age. Trained by furniture masters Wayne Marcoux and Dan Mosheim, David learned about composition and construction techniques. Danish, Ming Dynasty, and contemporary American studio furniture where the focus of David’s studies in furniture as he progressed in his career.
Always “driven by artistic design and aesthetic value,” David’s avant-garde approach to developing his style included joining Vermont-based Forever Young Treehouses where he traveled as the lead carpenter on handicap-accessible projects so “anyone can climb a tree and take a walk in the woods” in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati and Pennsylvania. David returned to his roots in furniture after a few years of building treehouses, bringing with him the organic understanding that is required for building in the trees.
