Living Room Seating Ensemble - Curly Maple solids and veneers with geometric inlay in ebony and pomelle sapele,  hand carved maple arms and triangular interlocking side tables.

        Dining Room- Curly Maple Arch leg Dining Table and chairs

Arch leg Dining Table - three-quarter view.  A design inspired by the bridges of Robert Maillert in Switzerland and Bixby Canyon Bridge , Big Sur, California.  The latest in an ongoing series of quarter-span stressed arch designs.  Although light in appearance it will support heavy vehicular traffic as well as magnums of Chateau Petrus.
