On the issue of slab furnishings, a person of the initially designer to great this seem was Tucker Robbins who’s 16000 sq foot studio/ warehouse in Very long Island City used to host a lot of intriguing soirees for pals and enthusiasts.  His artful manipulation of teak, acacia, or harvested community woods boast varied silhouettes, a real materials integrity and an comprehension of how to juxtapose raw unfinished wooden with complicated dynamic sculpting.

2. City Joinery- Modern day styles crafted in conventional home furniture-producing strategies

Every piece is produced one particular at a time- and it reveals. Their booth exceeded all my expectation of hand designed personalized furnishings by adhering to some primary home furniture principals: restrained mixture of resources and discerning use of sound woods. The principal and designer, Jonah Zuckerman crafts mainly up to date, pared down kinds with taut lines, sudden and often contrasting surfaces, and typically incorporate other resources this sort of as metal, glass, upholstery, and acrylic as a delicate embellishment to wooden surfaces.

Probably the most justifiably overrated furnishings maker in Brooklyn making tailor made American created home furnishings/ house decor.   Tyler Hays is the founder and designer of his woody modern day types- mixing urban loft sophistication with a chunky rustic flair.  Seemingly he even now manages to keep on the reducing edge, and act as a chief in the about saturated “slab furnishings” scene.   Added details for photographing your home furniture with your pet!

4. Boca de Lobo- Contemporary minimal version home furniture combining art and layout

This home furniture/ decor company based mostly out of Portugal is obviously targeting the New York marketplace with merchandise names these kinds of as “Moma,” “Hudson,” and “Tribeca.” Judging from their 100 coats of piano end lacquer, mishmash of different stylistic periods into a single piece and seeing furnishings as conversational artwork- I are unable to detect any New York-ism or even “American Produced” classicism in them…. nonetheless, my pulse quickened, my eyes widened, and an uncontrollable goofy grin appeared, precisely simply because of their total lack of restraint in combining components, hues, and scale.  Carved features were being over the major ornate and gilded, scale was teetering on leading hefty on most pieces, nevertheless luxuriously so, and Each individual end was so glossy it looked wet- all the makings of pure visual candy, but refreshingly cliche free! 

Boca de Lobo requires furnishings as artwork to a collectible status, packing ample visible mojo into each piece that you question precisely how you might be going to furnish the relaxation of your interior All over their piece.  Bravo.
