The CASTE line of furniture and accessories is designed in its entirety by Ty Best. Ty was born and raised in Montana and lives there today.
From the beginning, Ty’s work has been jointly and variously inspired by evolved natural forms, both animate and inanimate; modern architectural and industrial design; and the fine hand workmanship of traditional crafts.
His combinations of sculpted solids and voids, distinctive proportions, and a unique artistic vocabulary result in one-of-a-kind furnishings remarkable for their organic beauty.
Crafted in noble materials including bronze, marble, bridle leather, and classic woods, his pieces invoke seemingly contradictory responses: luxurious/simple, complex/comfortable, fine art/furniture.
His unique aesthetic has been described as “future primitive”. Regardless of descriptives, his work is inherently beautiful and timeless.
