Custom Furniture

T.O.M.T.™ custom furniture brings new life to commonly forgotten and underappreciated objects. Made from found objects like discarded crutches, vintage refrigerators, and suitcases, T.O.M.T.™ furniture designs are conversation pieces made to look good and function well. Tediously handcrafted, each found object is reimagined into artful furniture pieces.

Each piece of T.O.M.T.™ furniture is one-of-a-kind because it is handcrafted from found objects. Rodney Allen Trice works on commission to create furniture similar to the rocking chair design shown here. He constantly collects old objects to imagine new meaning and purpose. He also works with customers’ personal objects that are ready for new life.

About this Maker


T.O.M.T.™ offers imaginative home furnishings and lighting made from found materials. Refitting otherwise discarded objects, founder and artist Rodney Allen Trice gives ordinary items a new lease on life. Rodney began designing and making upcycled furniture in 1988 out of a need to furnish his first apartment in New York City on a budget. His creative interpretation of found objects then planted the seeds of what is now a celebrated collection of distinctive, functional designs.
