Thanks to the talented Fiorenzo Borghi for shooting this piece for me at 3rd Ward’s photo studios. This chair, titled “Raise”, is a progression of the original Cherry chair. The chair is an investigation into incorporating the shaping of hard lines to accentuate the flowing lines of the rails and stretchers. The original chair relies on upholstery and padding for the seat and back while “Raise” uses a traditional hand carved seat and back to make a more harmonious piece. It has a permanent gallery on the Portfolio page.
This is beautiful! I love the hand carving detail.
