Our live edge furniture feels at home in this gallery
We worked with the Edward Fields and Tai Ping Carpets gallery in Chicago, Illinois last month. Their showroom features several carpets that were designed by the legendary George Nakashima. Nakashima was an inspiration to furniture makers around the world, including our own craftsman, Matt Thomas. Elko Hardwood's live edge furniture fits perfectly with the abstract, colorful nature scenes that Nakashima designed in 1959. Architectural Digest even wrote about the carpets in this showroom, so take a look at their site if you want to learn more.
Live Edge Cherry Bar Height Table
Elko Hardwoods brought three pieces of cherry furniture to the gallery. The first, and our favorite, is this cherry bar height table. We preserved the natural beauty of this single slab by leaving the live edge and resin-filled voids intact. The table features our high quality, silky smooth finish. We paired the slab with a black steel I-beam base that is 36 inches high. You'll feel like you're on top of the world while dining around this modern design. You might also notice some pretty cool stools in the picture. Yes - they're by Thos. Moser!
Modern Cherry Coffee Table
Our second piece is this cherry coffee table. The grain of this piece is exceptional, and it's doubtful that we will find a comparable tree any time soon. We almost felt bad about the coffee table's fiery figure diverting eyes from Nakashima's rug.
Natural Cherry Bench
Elko Hardwoods finished off the showroom with this cherry bench. We love the long, curvy feel of this piece. The steel hairpin base adds a subtle, complementary touch.
