Arthur Court was from Minnesota & served in the Navy during WWII. After the Navy Arthur moved to San Francisco, attended the Rudolph Schaeffer School of Design. In 1966 Arthur opened his own interior design company and a store that offered unusual objects of art, mineral specimens and furniture. As a result of his projects, he began traveling and importing exotic objects from the Pacific Rim. His reputation grew and soon his collections were featured in Neiman Marcus and Gumps.

Arthur’s casting ability came from a line of jewelry which he designed using fossils, shells, bones and stones. The bone concept inspired a cast aluminum Antler furniture line that has been a signature look for Arthur Court since the sixties and is now rare and sought after.

Sand-cast aluminum is what Arthur is known for today. Arthur Court is a leading national brand name in alternative metals. Inspired by nature, he crafts this cool, lustrous metal into themes of plants and animals that add elegance to the dining experience.
