The marquetry clad surfaces of LINLEY’s new LIGHTSCAPE collection evoke the interplay of light across the reflective glass and steel facades of 21st century urban architecture. This collection by David Linley and his studio demonstrates that marquetry’s narrative and visual impact is beginning to find contemporary expression.
This is the second of my three part series on one of Craig Thibodeau’s recent residential projects. The client’s imagination was sparked by Craig Thibodeau’s collection of hardwood veneers. The rich-grained Pau Ferro and Macassar Ebony evoked the elegant Art Deco furniture of Emile-Jacques Ruhlman. The project brief began as a simple stacked console table that accentuated the waterfall effects of Pau Ferro flowing down all the layers.
This is the first of a three part series on designer maker Craig Thibodeau’s recent studio furniture commissions for one of his residential clients. In this post I’ll present two of his Cherry & Carpathian Elm themed sets: A dining room table with six chairs and a desk & chair set. This series will illustrate how a client can become enthralled with the interactive experience of creating fine furniture with a designer maker such as Craig Thibodeau.
The LINLEY Helix is one of my favorite applied marquetry designs. LINLEY has applied it with excellent effects in this limited edition commission for Bentley Motors.
