Topic tags/keywords: maloof california round

I’m in the process of designing a sideboard and intend to use the California round but I can’t seem to find any good close up examples of it. I thought it was just a simple round over, but in one pic I see Maloof tying the vertical pieces to the horizontal ones with butterfly keys.

Anyway if there is a decent gallery of Maloofs work (or anyone else that uses the style) online showing examples of this in use please let me know because I’m having a real hard time finding anything.

I don’t kow where you live, but I went to the Renwick Gallery in Washington, DC last week to see the Greene & Greene exhibit and they have a dining room & chair display by Maloof. Close enough to touch (but you’re not allowed :(...

One thing I noticed about touching that I’ve never really thought about looking at period furniture, etc. Maloof and Greene & Greene furniture makes you WANT to touch it… even though you can’t.
