Richard W. Townsend



Townsend’s fabulous furniture is the best-kept secret in New York!
He has rehabilitated tables, chairs, and cabinets for me as well
offering very valuable advice about many other projects.

His artistry and craft are those of an expert diagnostician and surgeon.
He’s an extremely personable guy and is able to describe
to his clients in simple
language the mechanical principles, artistic goals
and creative process behind his high-end original designs.
I strongly recommend Richard to uncover the hidden beauty in pieces you

already have and to design and build the furniture of your dreams.
