These furniture designs were developed and prototypes built in our workshop to be tested in working/ living environments, under various user and climate/humidity conditions. Material selection is always critical-quilted Maple and American White quarter-sawn Oak for a free standing jewelry cabinet with characteristic red struts; the same Oak carries over to a platform bed with a 4 panel SpinneyBeck leather headboard; its two side tables interpretations in aluminum plate, legs topped by Carrera marble; a stereo console in quilted Maple veneer with aluminum panel drawer fronts; the Cypress four poster bed flanked by side tables of Cypress and Padauk; an office desk, constructed of solid curly Maple highlighted with Purple Heart on an aluminum plate frame; an outside table of Carrera and aluminum between two Schultz chaises, and a round foyer table of Zebrawood and Italian Walnut, originally installed in an office setting.Then: humidors of unusual character and wood species; a small scale all-heart cherry dining table and sideboard; a writing desk in Teak; a Cypress dressing stool and an American White Oak bread box, both with Padauk trim. Recent efforts include: a thin Carrera slab supported by a large scale steel frame serving as a refectory table seating ten and partnered with a fanciful dirigible-shaped chandelier; tubular steel frame garden lounge seating with accompanying side table of aluminum plate and Carrera marble; and, a simple lightweight, bookshelf unit of Birch, solid and ply-detailed with exposed screws and stainless finishing washers.
+all woods either clear-coated or oiled to preserve and enhance the natural grain of the wood; exotics are sustainably harvested, recycled or from legacy stock.
