Stan Dunham, a native North Carolinian, comes from a millwork/cabinetry background, and has spent the last 10 years honing his skills designing and building custom furniture and cabinetry. Stan began building custom furniture for Ruard Veltman Architecture in 2006, and in October of 2011 he joined Ruard Veltman's team and helped create Veltman Meubles. The furniture design process is a collaboration between Ruard Veltman, Stan Dunham, and Julia Palen Wood, with Stan acting as the lead craftsman for the custom furniture division of the firm, Veltman Meubles (VM). The VM team designs and builds furniture pieces such as dining tables, banquets, bunk beds, daybeds, porch furniture, islands, benches, and much more. Furniture design is a complement to the architecture; another service Ruard Veltman Architecture offers to complete a beautiful space.
