Troy Smith has become known as the "Modern Day Renaissance Man" due to his stylish and vibrant art deco furniture designs. Troy's lovely home furniture encompasses the spirit of the 1920s and features structural elements like textured rebar, light-shifting glass, exotic woods and premium leather.
The 'Flute Sofa' is a staple of Troy Smith's art deco furniture designs. This piece boasts French velvet material that elegantly wraps the tubular components, making out the exuberant and romantic seat.
Troy's second collection features a more innovative material, called 'The Crazy Glass.' Expressing the magical attitude of the roaring 20s, the material is able to change color, depending on the direction and intensity of the various sources of lighting.
