Fred Rossi Bio & Timeline
A woodworker with an eye for detail, Fred Rossi creates finely crafted furniture and cabinetry. His influences range from the Greene brothers and the Arts and Craft movement to Asian architecture and the use of wood grain in James Krenov’s designs.
Fred initially learned his craft watching his builder father and creating theatrical sets while at St. John’s Preparatory School and the University of Pennsylvania. Some of his first jobs after college were building sets for the film industry. After receiving his MBA from the Wharton School and working in real estate finance, Fred was drawn back to woodworking.
“Clean lines, self-evident joinery and wood grain that become part of the design allow my pieces to speak for themselves. The work is exciting and rewarding for both me and my clients.”
