Artist Bio
Kenon Perry

Kenon PerryBIO

As founder of Icon custom furniture, Kenon Perry is an artist first and a carpenter second. He believes if a piece isn't thoughtfully designed, lines to limbs, then no one will notice whether it’s assembled with a tongue-and-groove joint or a dove tail, whether the wood is wenge or ipé.

Perry was born in east Texas with a God-given ability to build things, spending the bulk of his Waco boyhood drawing, fabricating, or thinking about drawing or fabricating. He then honed these raw talents at the prestigious University of North Texas art school, studying sculpture, graphic design, and history.

Perry has since moved to Austin, where he launched his firm in an east side workshop in 2007.
