 Peter Keresztury - Artist
Furniture Designer - Painter - Sculptor

I am a furniture designer and abstract painter who seeks beauty, harmony, balance and proportion in all my endeavors. I have always been involved in the creative arts and I like working with vibrant colors that bring joy and excitement.


In college I majored in Industrial Arts with a Fine Arts minor. I moved to New Hope, PA and began designing modern furniture, which was influenced by the great mid-century designers, George Nakashima, Paul Evans, and Phillip Lloyd Powell, who resided there.  Art Deco designs also played an important role in my 2 and 3 dimensional projects and continued to be an important feature in all my designs.


I moved to New York City in the ‘60s, got married, and lived in a loft where I designed and manufactured modern furniture, sculptures, and accessories.  One of my chairs and a sculpture were exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


I have lived in California since 1972 and my kinetic wind sculptures, along with my abstract paintings, have been displayed in various galleries. I have also curated several art and sculpture exhibitions.


My current art projects include designing table furniture with my abstract paintings on the tops. “Tables As Art - Functional Art” collection includes coffee tables, 3-pc sets, console/entry tables, and breakfast/dining tables. Most tops have my abstract painting designs, others have polished copper, brass, and aluminum patchwork and some have a combination of both.  All table tops are painted with abstract designs in various colors, with handcrafted architectural stepped legs.


I live in Novato, CA with my wife, Deborah, surrounded by my furniture, paintings, and kinetic wind sculptures on my front lawn. I am a member of Marin Open Studios, International Sculpture Center and Pacific Rim Sculptors.
