About Us

Wine Country Fine Furniture Team

Jack Rasmussen

Owner

Jack loves fine furniture, especially leather, and made belts, gloves, and barrettes with his Grandfather as a youth.  Continuing that passion, in our showroom we are most happy when we become acquainted with our visitors, see how excited they become as they build out their own heirloom furniture pieces, and they realize that we will support them for many years to come. 

 

Our focus is quality, custom furniture for astute seekers who realize they can’t truly evaluate items from online stores, and understand that big-box or large chain stores outsource their customer service to third party companies.  We are local; friendly; and plan to work with our customers for many years.

 

Jack and Bonnie lived in Marin County and Sonoma County for almost 40 years, and are long-time friends of the Praetzels. Jack retired from executive positions with analytic companies -- 17 years with Fair, Isaac in Marin County (the inventor of the FICO Score); headed the predictive score group at Experian; and was a VP of Sales at two well-known Artificial Intelligence firms.

Bonnie Rasmussen

Customer Service

Bonnie hopes to bring joy to our new friends who design their own furniture through our showroom, just as she has with her violin students.

 

Because Bonnie is a classically trained concertmaster, as well as the director of the Lucas Valley Chamber Orchestra in Marin County for 7 years, she has a good listening ear for what each person on the “team” needs.  Since the discerning buyer knows the importance to touching and feeling the fine furniture before acquiring it, Bonnie is the perfect match; helping people design exactly what they want in their home.

Paul Praetzel

Manager and retired 40-year owner of Praetzel’s Fine Furniture

Paul Praetzel oversees the product and quality mix of the American companies we chose for their style, comfort, and longevity.  You should expect excellent service, phone calls promptly returned, and the continuance of the legendary years, long after sale, service, and availability.

 

Paul is a walking encyclopedia of furniture comfort and knowledge.  Over the past 40 years, he became well-known for building rapport with customers who wander into the showroom, learning their needs, and providing help and suggestions for many years afterwards.  Jack & Bonnie Rasmussen will continue Paul’s legacy of quality home furnishings and service started in 1950 at Praetzel’s Fine Furniture. 

 

Interior Designers and trade professionals are very welcome to the West Coast Factory Showroom of these high-quality manufacturers, hosted at Wine Country Fine Furniture.
