The introduction of rich colors and textures dot this collection with subtle pops within layers.  Clean lines and angles are reminiscent of a contemporary style, while successfully combining warmth with order; the careful choice of color scale, materials, and hardware made these nuanced subtleties possible.

For a furniture suite that was displayed at ICFF Miami, we fashioned half-lap joinery in all solid wood carcasses showcased, as a design detail that was carried thematically throughout the pieces. By contrasting the white paint and a ceruse finish on rift sawn white oak,  we were able to achieve a warm, bright color for the furniture that was complimentary to the scale of the designs.

WALNUT ELLIPSE.
Dimensions: 18” x 36” x 24”

T

The subtle swooping lines of the x-patterned base float throughout many our furniture designs. Not to be overlooked, the half-lap joinery of the two aprons at their intersection, is a graceful and almost dainty detail. This elegance was a motivating design element captured in this ellipse table, complete with an inlaid glass top to showcase each feature.

The sweeping lines of this piece provided ample support at the base, in order to fortify the sizable radius top. The solid walnut had a natural finish and grain, which showcased beautifully in the well-lit breakfast area the table was created for. The lighting perfectly illuminated the detailed book matching of walnut burl veneers. Solid edge aprons attached with floating mortise and tenon joinery finished off this project exceptionally well,  with final- touch details such as  walnut “keys” to allow for subtle movement.

Playing off the art-deco styling of mixing contrasting color and utilizing themes such as mirrored doors and end panels, this server is equipped with wine and glass storage as well a pullout service area. The legs are a modern take on a cabriole leg, complete with shape and movement, without the dramatic swells of a traditional Chippendale version.

SIDEBOARD.
Rift Sawn White Oak, ceruse finish with painted Maple
Dimensions: 54” · 18” · 36”

W

While prototyping this design, the scale of the sideboard seemed a bit large, once built. In the revised version, we added depth to create the additional interior room needed for bottles and glasses. A tapered mid-rail, and a slight curve to the lower aprons were added to create an appealing, eye catching motif.

Solid walnut was used in the frame and panel doors that featured a continues mid apron to give continuity to the symmetry of the panels. With adjustable shelves throughout the interior, the configuration of the wardrobe was versatile for varying layouts.

DRESSER.
Rift Sawn White Oak, ceruse finish, with painted Maple
Dimensions: 65” · 18” · 31”

The sweeping leg set gives this dresser a sleek base, reminiscent of a mid-century design, to give this piece the appearance of movement from multiple angles. Rather than the traditional slabbed front, the 1/8” depth ribbed fronts give the drawers muted texture and shadow lines.

To create the contrast of a painted interior mixed with the solid oak fronts, we built a plywood shell that slid into a solid oak frame. Due to the size of the solid doors, we crafted a dovetail joint on the battens, to keep the wood stable as it moves through the seasons.
