SHERI BINGHAM is the creative force behind Iron Thread Design. Never one to sit still for long, Sheri is a trained singer with degrees in comparative religions and math education. A mother of three, she has always been consumed with making things.
Her love of creativity and mathematical precision is quite evident in her work. Her furniture is clean and solid. It makes sense. It stands strong. It is a careful balance of precision, playfulness and comfort.
Iron Thread Design is very much a family affair. Sheri’s husband, Christian, is a builder and designs/builds the internal structures. Her children are frequently assigned tasks when they visit her studio. She has encouraged them over the years to quit school and work for her, but so far, they have declined.
She has been an upholsterer for over 20 years. She decided to take up upholstery to have something to do while taking care of small children at home; fueled by a love of fabric and of simply ‘making things’, upholstery was a perfect match.
Iron Thread Furniture is all lovingly hand crafted in Sheri’s Austin, TX design studio. Iron Thread is designed for living with. Daily ritual’s like putting your feet up after a long day, playing a game with the kids, casting off just worn clothes or laying out the next outfit all have a place on an Iron Thread piece.
Iron Thread Design was born from a joy of creating.
