we just finished a cherry and curly maple dining room in what we refer to as our ‘studio style’. that style is typically a combination of natural and/or stained woods, combined with painted details. it has historic roots in the beidermeier style from germany in the mid 1800’s, but we have added our interpretation to the details and designs. the last photo of this series shows a sideboard, mirror, and part of a table and chair from my own home. those pieces were made in 1987. this client liked a table that i made for her brother around 1990 and waited until she had a new house to commission her own version of it … lots more process photos and construction details on my dorset csutom furniture blog. also, we are very busy at the moment and there is another post i just wrote here describing what else we’re working on and what’s coming up next … check it out if you have a minute …

Wow. Those look perfect.

Go big and elegant, or go away. I’d be proud to have those pieces in my home…...the truck will be there in an hour. Thanks.

Favorited. Has both a modern appeal and an old-school touch.
