Modern Flair for City Living

Designed for a smaller space in a third floor city walk-up, this dining room set is both contemporary and compact.  The table is built entirely of ash and because of its sprung, cross-beamed construction, it is strong enough to support two people (we checked.)  It actually breaks down flat with a single allen wrench for ease going up and down tight stairwells.  In addition to the unique sliding dovetail joinery that allows for the subtle 10 degree angle of the legs, a curving bevel along the top adds to the sense of lightness in a piece built for tough daily use.  

The space-saving stools slide underneath the table and continue the contemporary theme. Made of ash and curly walnut, they fall somewhere on the continuum of Scandinavian and Japanese design.  The angles mirror those on the table and the subtle curve on the seat allows for leisurely dinners in comfort.  While building the prototype I also designed standard dining chairs for those looking to make a statement in a larger dining room.
