Wood Matters Part Three: Angles and Lines

Furniture collections or stand-alone pieces that showcase  wood through unexpected angles and continuous lines are my favorite. Hugh MIller of HM Handmade features this in his Folded Record Bureau. And it is SO FABULOUS. The bureau recalls mid-century modern simplicity, but with contemporary originality. Love the angled storage areas for records, and how the turntable is flush with the table surface. I also love his backgammon table that incorporates magazine or book storage (or instructions on how to play). The pop of color and geometric detail along the table top make this piece all the better.  Another favorite of the moment is the New Alto home desk designed by Andreas Engesvik. The design incorporates a solid wood base with a delicate table top. I enjoy how the sides of the table top delicately flare upward, which juxtaposes its linear solid base.   Enjoy these beautiful wooden angles + and lines!
