BIO | PRODUCT

A group of carefully detailed contemporary occasional pieces and chairs for the high-end residential market.

"I strive to create original forms of graceful, comfortable, superbly crafted modern furniture which can blend in with a variety of styles and architectural settings. Throughout the collection, proportions have been carefully studied, details highly refined, and finishes developed to convey elegance through simplicity and sophistication. Every item is entirely handmade and hand finished . Many of the shapes lend themselves to custom variations which can be readily accommodated. Working domestically and directly with talented craftsmen using the finest materials enables me to offer customers products at a high level of quality and with great intrinsic value." ~ Michael Kirkpatrick
