Jim Rose Case Pieces and Storage Cabinets

American, 1966-2023

Bringing lively newness to weathered and worn found materials, artist and furniture designer Jim Rose mined scrap heaps and junkyards for the metal he used in his furniture, collages and decorative objects. He kept his eyes open for the ideal scraps of aged steel that could be bent and shaped into a base, frame or surface of his next piece, hand-picking off-colored bits to serve as inlays and accents. 

Rose was long associated with the American Studio Craft movement, and many of his one-of-a-kind works can typically be characterized as a venturesome fusion of folk art and modernist design. Each piece, crafted by hand and with fastidious care in his Wisconsin studio, is representative of his work ethic and boundless imagination.

Born in Indiana, Rose studied briefly at Bard College in New York City and earned his BFA in sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1988. A couple of years earlier, he established his design studio, along with his wife Suzanne — an award-winning photographer — as his partner. During the 1990s, Rose and Suzanne traveled the American Northeast, where he became enamored with Shaker furniture

When Rose returned home, he read every piece of literature he could about the history of the Shakers. The name derives from the popular moniker for an all-but-vanished American religious sect, whose members crafted honest, modest household furniture and objects as part of their belief in purposeful living and simplicity in all things. Rose incorporated Shaker methods into the production of his own designs. Rather than utilize the unpretentious hardwoods that the Shakers preferred, however, Rose worked with discarded materials, fashioning tables, case pieces and decorative objects from repurposed steel and other metals.

In the late 1990s, Rose began to include multi-colored metal into his works — adapting methods used by colonial quiltmakers. His furnishings began to take on a mosaic look, bringing a substantial amount of visual appeal and new charm to each of his distinctive creations. Rose also produced a body of work that drew on Ming dynasty designs.

With numerous showings at Sculpture Objects & Functional Art Fair in New York City and Chicago, Rose made a name for himself throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s. He had solo and group exhibitions throughout his career, including in Palm Beach, Florida, and Mesa, Arizona — as well as at many other galleries in New York and Chicago. Rose’s work is held in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Mesa Contemporary Arts, Racine Art Museum and other institutions.

Jim Rose - Shaker Inspired Chest of Drawers, Steel Furniture Natural Rust Patina
By Jim Rose
Located in Chicago, IL
This chest of drawers was inspired by the forms and sensibilities of Shaker furniture. Here, artist Jim Rose puts his spin on the shaker design by using naturally rusted steel. The warmth of the patina evokes a cherished family heirloom. This piece will add interest and functionality to any room. Jim Rose Chest of Drawers repurposed steel with natural rust patina 78h x 35w x 18d in 198.12h x 88.90w x 45.72d cm JR0270 Jim Rose b. 1966, d. 2023 Bio: Born in Indiana, Jim Rose lived in Europe until he returned to the United States to attend college. After one year at Bard College, Jim transferred to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago (SAIC) where he graduated in 1988 with a BFA. His skillful interpretation of the Shaker design is a result of intense research and field study of Shaker furniture, architecture, culture and history. After over two decades of dedicated work, he has mastered the minimalism of the Shaker technique and created his own unique visual vernacular. The quilts of Gee's Bend have become a monumental influence taking this artist's work to new levels of unique interpretation and artistry. His selection of aged steel results in a patina directly related to that of aged wood while his colored strips beautifully mimic worn cloth. Each piece of furniture is masterfully made and intended for daily use. Jim Rose’s steel furniture is featured every year at SOFA Chicago for the past 25 years.

Jim Rose Two Drawer/Two Door Pie Safe with Drilled Holes, Natural Rusted Patina
By Jim Rose
Located in Chicago, IL
Introduced in the early 1700's, the pie safe was an essential item in American kitchens before the introduction of refrigeration. The punched holes kept perishable goods safe from pests and were highly used up until the introduction of refrigeration in the mid 1880s. This modern take on an old tradition uses naturally rusted steel to bring a warmth to this beautifully constructed pie safe. The punched holes form an intricate floral pattern on three sides. One fixed shelf inside makes this a highly utilitarian yet stunningly beautiful addition to any room.

Jim Rose Legacy Collection - Tall Cabinet, Shaker Inspired Steel Cupboard
By Jim Rose
Located in Chicago, IL
This is a totally functional tall one door cupboard with two exterior drawers and one hidden drawer. It is created from naturally rusted, salvaged and recycled ship building steel. Inspired by the Shaker aesthetic, this piece is all about clean lines and functionality and is a model of modern industrial sustainable design. Four interior shelves allow for a variety of uses. Jim Rose Legacy Collection Tall Cabinet, 2003 found steel with natural rust patina 80h x 23w x 16d in 203.20h x 58.42w x 40.64d cm Jim Rose b. 1966, d. 2023 Bio Born in Indiana, Jim Rose lived in Europe until he returned to the United States to attend college. After one year at Bard College, Jim transferred to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago (SAIC) where he graduated in 1988 with a BFA. His skillful interpretation of the Shaker design is a result of intense research and field study of Shaker furniture, architecture, culture and history. After over two decades of dedicated work, he has mastered the minimalism of the Shaker technique and created his own unique visual vernacular. The quilts of Gee's Bend have become a monumental influence taking this artist's work to new levels of unique interpretation and artistry. His selection of aged steel results in a patina directly related to that of aged wood while his colored strips beautifully mimic worn cloth. Each piece of furniture is masterfully made and intended for daily use. Jim Rose’s steel furniture is featured every year at SOFA Chicago for the past 25 years.
