"Design is emotion. Emotion captured in shape or form. Design makes you feel good, bad or indifferent. It is not tangible. Viewing the same design, we all sense something different..." - Albo Teven


The concept of Jump Designs was created in 1997 when three good friends with a common love for art and furniture design gathered around a kitchen table with a bottle of wine and began doodling on a piece of paper. When one of us said, "This piece would look great in acrylic," the idea evolved and we never looked back.

We were thrilled to discover that the old medium of acrylic had taken on a new life. The soft, fragile acrylic of the past had given way to scratch resistant, fade resistant, almost bulletproof stuff that comes in loads of colors and thicknesses. Once we found this out, our love for furniture design became an obsession.

Our designers come from many disciplines: engineering, clothing design, photography, advertising and consulting. It is a surprise that we work as one...seamlessly. No one designer can lay claim to a specific design - each is a true collaboration.

An intern watching us work remarked that "we design and then remove everything that shouldn't be there." He pretty well summed up our style. Strong, clean lines, and strong furniture built to last. We pay great attention to the details that make furniture usable as well as attractive. A piece of furniture should function before it is formed. If it wobbles when you sit, you probably shouldn't.

The thick plastics and exotic colors we use are rare and pricey. We use thick plastics because we love them and they look so cool. The fact that they will last a lifetime is not lost on us. Family heirlooms? You bet! We use colors because most of our designs require that we do. Although sometimes colorful, Jump designs are not gaudy or difficult to use. Do the costs outweigh the benefits? There will always be demand for beautiful designs and beautiful furniture.

We have dozens of designs in cue and our portfolio expands daily. There are lots of surprises and new ideas in store, so check with us regularly. We hope you like what you see and would like to know what you think. Any comments, suggestions on our current offerings, or requests for new products are welcomed.

Looking in the mirror you see your face, looking at art you see your soul.
