A meditation on "X" a form inherent in structural construction, our Axis Series proves to be as stylish as it is muscular.  The flush seams of the wood plank top feature exposed splines that ensure levelness, stability, and longevity. Beveled edges of our Axis legs invite and echo our characteristic subtractive notches and hooved feet.  Exposed custom-designed Roman and Williams Guild Hardware takes the form of a machined square nut with quilted edges and built-in washer.  A horizontal, angled wood medial stretcher ties the vertical elements together.  

The Axis Series is available in these variations: Bench, Dining Table, Coffee Table, Side Table, Diner Chair, Reader & Footstool.

Handmade in a selection of Signature and Distinctive hardwoods and alloys with our Roman and Williams Guild Living Finishes.

Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer’s Roman and Williams Guild Original Designs are each branded with our insignia and delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
