Greta de Parry is an award-winning, classically-trained woodworker and sculptor. She completed her MFA with a focus on Sculpture and Designed Objects at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007. Afterward she was recruited as the sole artist in residence at a post-graduate program affiliated with the university. There she began making custom-commissioned furniture with the highest quality materials, construction, and design alongside master woodworker Mike Jarvi.
Greta formed Greta de Parry Design in 2012 to bring the same quality associated with these custom commissions to a wider audience through elegant, refined designs made by pairing with ethically-aligned manufacturers. The timeless designs are paired with solid, honest materials built to last a lifetime, and each and every piece is handcrafted in the USA.
