Wood Side Tables 2019
Walnut, Swavorski Crystal, Steel
W 24.5 D 16 H 24.5
These stunning tables effuse sensuality and elegance through softly tufted wood, accented with Swarovski Crystals. Made from solid walnut, this set is designed to explore the intersection of contemporary design and traditional woodworking.
Each pillow is individually designed in CAD and then compiled to create a unique texture which mimics tufted fabric. The textures are then prototyped and milled on a CNC machine. The design challenge is creating a clean alignment at the spline miter, while maintaining the organic curve of the sloped landscape. The miters and assembly are done in traditional hand crafted methods to ready the boxes for finish. The tool marks are removed with care by hours of hand sanding. The tables are brought to their final conception with a hand rubbed Waterlox finish that is reminiscent of the feel of worn leather.
