Teneresque

There's a terrific history of artists, like Gauguin, making elaborately carved furniture and we have always wanted to do a collection of pieces that were inspired by primitive furniture. Teneresque is the cumulation of one of our obsessions with the nexus where sculpture and furniture meet.  Stephen began by carefully sketching a "Chambeyronia macrocarpa." We then sent this drawing to the Croatian artisan Vedran Jakšić, who interpreted the vision, into its exquisite carved façade.  Nine dove-tailed drawers open smoothly with finger pulls.  Characteristic, canted hooves gracefully meet the ground.
