Called "a first-rate artist" by The New York Times and creator of "the furniture of dreams" by The Designer, George Berry has also received glowing reviews in The Atlanta Journal, Atlanta Magazine, Southern Homes, Craft Horizons, Modern Style and Fine Woodworking Magazine. World famous architect Richard Meier said Berry designed and built "the handsomest cabinets I have ever seen."

Some of Woodguy's recent jobs in Atlanta include:

  • The Catholic Church on the Georgia Tech campus
  • The furniture in the lobby, presidential suite, and conference table for the Penta Hotel
  • The entire lobby of Hewlett Packard Southeastern Sales Center
  • The display cases in the Underground Atlanta MARTA tunnel
  • Several shops in Underground
  • Wood elevator interiors for Lakeside Center and Decatur Town Center
  • The State Bar of Georgia reception desk and Federal Judge's chambers
  • The restoration of the unacceptable woodwork in the four-story atrium lobby of the New Grady Hospital

In addition to his firm's commercial work, George Berry's one-of-a-kind furniture has won many national awards including "Best in Show" at New York City's Lincoln Center Festival of the Arts. His first antique conservation was shown at the High Museum in Atlanta 1974, and s-shaped coffee table pictured above was displayed in the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, in New York City. In 1990 he was selected by the American Craft Council to be one of 15 furniture makers to represent the U.S. at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair.

Along with his commercial projects he has also served as a millwork consultant to IBM and the Federal Court of Appeals and has been qualified as an expert witness in Fulton Superior Court. He has been appointed an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Art at Kennesaw State University. He now teaches "Designing Furniture" at Savannah College of Art and Design. George also teaches how to specify cabinets, wooden furniture, and architectural millwork to interior designers as part of their continuing education for professional requirements.

George Berry received a Fine Arts degree in Interior Design from Georgia State University in 1975, and then a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Woodworking and Furniture Design from the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology in 1979. He returned to Atlanta and opened a shop equipped to handle all phases of furniture fabrication and millwork; from marble, glass or fancy veneer tops to stainless steel or ball and claw feet. He employs highly-skilled craftsmen who take great pride in their work. For private lessons or commissions, call Mr. Berry at (404) 577-4433.
