Jason Koharik was born and raised in Bedford, Ohio, and later made a name for himself as an artist and designer in Los Angeles. He works from in a studio in Glassell Park, relying on timeless methods to design and handcraft his sophisticated line of lighting and furniture.
His work is inspired by the fluid beauty and natural forms of the Art Nouveau period, as well as an effort to create a unique silhouette that becomes an anomaly in it’s interior. Each piece takes on a one-of-a-kind quality. Working with natural materials such as wood, steel, brass and leather, he is seeks a balance between furniture and sculpture.
In addition to his own designs, Jason Koharik is also a collector of interesting and rare vintage furniture and lighting, which he often transforms, with his own unique upholstery, hand-stitched leather, metal and wood working skills, to create an entirely new piece of standout furniture. Koharik is a self-taught artist and craftsman whose methods and work are always evolving.
