Elizabeth Paige Smith





Utilizing the processes of minimalism and the abstraction of nature are key concepts for the creation of Elizabeth Paige Smith's furniture designs resulting in warm minimal forms. Drawing from aspects of American popular culture, the designs combine solid workmanship with multifunctional ideals. She draws from the material and manufacturing process of surfboard production (Elizabeth surfs every week) in her latest collection that includes the "Nude Lounge". The furniture collection incorporates an adaptable sensibility--appropriate for residential and contract environments--distinguished by details embodied in clean forms. Smith uses her past experience to formulate her approach to design and detail in interiors and furniture. Her upbringing in the Caribbean combined with her travels abroad defines her attraction to color, texture, and materials. Through the cohesive use of materials, and the refined and controlled composition of the designs, Smith creates a new definition of how we occupy space. A striking movement that begins to bridge the gap between American and European style.
