Woodwork photos taken by Peter Edward Kent.

As DiFilippo Kent we have been collaborating on art & design projects since 1980. In 2006 we began designing and fabricating furniture made from exotic woods including river recovered, live edge, and recycled pieces. There are currently over 170 items in the inventory of solid wood tables, benches, pedestals, platters, and wood art at our studio/gallery in Sarasota. The public is welcome to visit by appointment and see the Art of Creation at DiFilippo Kent.

DiFilippo Kent work together to offer design & art consulting services. We also offer handmade woodwork, art photography, digital photo services, and paintings. We create oriental style gardens in pots from the Far East all to show God’s creation in its splendid beauty. Photographs of nature are on display in Sarasota at the gallery along with unique woodwork.


Using ancient woods we design and produce solid wood tables, benches, pedestals, and art handmade in partnership with Florida craftsmen. They are made to last a lifetime. We call it Heritage Furniture. Some of the wood is recovered from the Suwannee River in north Florida. Other pieces are recycled from old buildings constructed before steel was common. And still others come from the Withlacoochee watershed near Inverness, Florida. In 2009 we were awarded a design copyright for our Higgins Table/Bench.
