A New American Standard at Canvas

Justine Hand November 30, 2012

Described by many, including the New York Times, as a "master woodworker," Thomas Ryan Beckman creates everything from kinetic sculptures to fine homes. But it is his collection of new American furniture for Canvas that has long been the apple of our eyes.

Beginning his career as an apprentice to a cabinet maker, Thomas Ryan Barkman further honed his skills and artistry under the tutelage of Rosanne Somerson of RISD as well as woodworker Matthias Pleisnig at the Haystack Mountain School. Since then he has gone on to prestigious collaborations with other artists and brands, including an exclusive collection for Canvas.

Streamlined and modern, Barkman's pieces none-the-less pay homage to early American design. In keeping with Canvas' sustainable mission, the collection is all made from local and recycled materials—including pieces of the New York Skyline.

Above: Sleek and contemporary, yet with an old-world soul, Barkman's White Cedar Table and Bench are made from pieces of New York water towers that Thomas salvaged himself; $2,850. Contact Canvas for availability.

Above: Fashioned from rough-sawn pine, Canvas' Shelter Island Bench is a new modern classic; $790.

Above: An homage to Shaker style, Barkman's Four-Post Bed is available in white wash or sumi black finish; a queen is $2,950 and king is $3,250.

Above: Made from solid pine, the Corkscrew Collection features adjustable seats and table tops; the bistro table is $695, and the side table is $540. Contact Thomas Ryan Barkman for information about the stool.
