The title "Ebony Wedge Buffet" says it all. This server speaks with it's contemporary styling and plain geometric shapes. The ebony wedges rest on each end of the birdseye maple base and support it's glass top. It is a clean design with no visible hardware. The doors open by touch latch and the drawers open via a groove on the side. The glass top allows you to put things on it right out of the oven. Bon appetit!
The design of this credenza was inspired by the Mayan temples of Chichen Itza in what is now Mexico. The central gold leaf band emulates the steps that climb the sloping facade of the pyramid. The fiddleback makore veneer creates a waterfall effect that flows from one panel to the next. The pulls are solid brass. The base and top border are ebonized maple. The top itself is birdseye maple.
Art Deco inspired six door dresser. Three dimensional solid wood appliques. Maple and mahogany applied over carpathian elm burl drawer fronts with black lacquer pulls.
Michael Steiner, ASID, designed this glass top table for a Woodleaf Studios sponsored design competition. Woodleaf Studios then built and donated this winning design to a fundraiser for Interact(a shelter for battered women and children).
The main urn body is birdseye maple with hand carved spiraling trunks finished with silver leaf and lacquer. The dangling black tassles add to the whimsical feel and create an unusual texture for this piece.
