And, indeed, it is very cool furniture:

Can't you see this lit up for a steampunk ball?
He calls these rust cupboards. Charming...






Me, I think these would fit in a rusty, bucket of bolts spaceship, cruising the stars while experiencing swashbuckling adventures and engaging in barely legal but morally upright shenanigans.

This furniture is absolutely fantastic!

The forms and materials are so familiar, yet there is nothing quite like it on the market.

What wonderful geometry.

Perfect in every way.

Thank you for the post!

I really love the simplicity without decorative frills, that lets the shape of the piece stand out. The round corners are gorgeous and so appealing. They remind me of a couple of pieces in my Dad's old workshop.

Haha Sara, I just caught your last comment on the rusty bucket-of-bolts spaceship! I love that! Can we see these pieces on a Firefly?
