Topic tags/keywords: arts and crafts modern

Hi All,

My next project is a nightstand for my wife. After scrounging the internet and this site, it looks like she likes the Stickley 110 design the best – especially the wonderful job done by John. Something about the drawers is really nice there. However, while I like arts and crafts a lot, i tend to gravitate towards something just slightly more modern – like FLW, Maloof, Krenov, etc in my aesthetics (not so much G&G through).

Can anyone recommend any other designs – or modifications to the Stickley 110 – for nightstands? My only real requirements are: at least one drawer and a shelf below for books.

Check out Shaker furniture or modifications of the Shaker style… not exactly modern, but it has the simple, fundamental look that Krenov has.
