Remodelista SF Market Spotlight: Alice Tacheny

December 08, 2014 6:00 PM

BY Sarah Lonsdale

Who: Northern California furniture designer Alice Tacheny founded her studio only two years ago. She specializes in simple, clean-lined pieces that she makes in her workshop or in collaboration with Bay Area craftspeople. 

What: Tacheny’s line has recently expanded to include what she dubs “a small collection of useful and beautiful objects” for the home.

Insider Scoop: Tacheny never formally studied design. The biblical studies major took a woodworking course after college graduation and honed her design skills at Blu Dot, in Minneapolis, and later at Target. 

Above: The Platte Bench, $2,000, with a walnut top and solid brass legs, and Teddy Hooks (see below).

Above: Teddy Hooks with maple pegs and leather loops for stowing scarves and accessories are $34 each.

Above: The Tilde Dresser in walnut with brass pulls; $9,600. Displayed on the top right is one of Tacheny’s cast concrete and brass partitioned Headlands boxes that start at $100.

Above: An Alice Tacheny ensemble, including a Tasche Wall Pocket of leather, $120, and a Platte Table of walnut and brass, $1,200.
