Bench & Stool
Our newest range of furniture stylized around a circular leg and inspired by the simple lines of Swedish aesthetics. The matching pair are appropriate around a dining table or casually placed in a living room or entryway.
The handles for the stool are not really armrests (too low), instead they are used to push up from a seated position and to grab for easy moving around the room. Carved seamlessly to flow into the leg, we shaped them by knife leaving a smooth surface that feels good to the hand.
The paired bench is the same design but without the handles allowing a simpler profile. This is customizable, handles can be included or not. Cushions are also optional, which are handswen in Santa Cruz by artist and sewer Vince Waring. Upholstery is pure wool and comes from Denmark.

This coffee table, like others, has an unobstructed surface for lounging or work, but also has and hides an extra-function, which is its most elegant feature. Underneath the tabletop is a pouch for storage that can easily be accessed by sliding the top aside.
We think this reveal is the highlight of the piece. As the top is moved, the pouch simultaneously is drawn up, bringing both stored items and textile closer to the surface. This makes a book or magazine easy to grab, but it also brings the handmade weave, woven by Santa Cruz artist Melody Overstreet, closer to view, allowing greater appreciation of it and her craft.
Returning the table to its original position again hides the weave, making for a constant play of secret and reveal, distance and closeness during daily use.

A rather simple table, we designed this piece to solve one particular problem.
Tables are our modern hearths, they are hard-used and prone to dents, scratches and stains. In a busy home, protecting a nice table with a tablecloth is necessary, but it can be disappointing aesthetically when a beautiful table and its many fine details are draped over. The start of this design was to imagine how a table could work with its cloth; how they could interact together to enhance the beauty of the whole.
We’ve tried to accomplish this by creating a space between the apron and tabletop. Where a cloth would normally cover the sides and dangle, this gap allows for a tablecoth to drop inside the apron. This exposes the apron and leaves a clean line along the length of the table. With a little forethought, we think a nice tablecloth, custom made by local artist and sewer Vince Waring, is no longer a detriment but a complement.
This design can be customized to other sizes and shapes, and lends itself to easy expansion with table leafs.

For display and storage, these walnut shelving units highlight the natural grain of the wood while providing ample space for books, ceramics and other cherished objects.
More than just shelves though, each unit has an added feature to enhance its use and look. The two-shelved piece has a half-shelf that slides back and forth providing two levels of display. The unit with three shelves has a removable tray set in line with its shelf. Inlaid with cork, it provides a pleasant contrast to the wood, while serving as a designated place for a tea set on or off the shelf.
Size and number of shelves can be customized.
Pictured units are:
2-Shelf: 42 x 33 x 12
3-Shelf: 36 x 38 x 12
