ARTISAN DRESSERView full Traverse collection
Traverse was inspired by the joinery that is used in crafting solid wood furniture. The Artisan Dresser highlights those details by utilizing and highlighting solid wood construction techniques. On this dresser the top and end panels display a box joint where the two solid maple surfaces are connected at a ninety degree angle. More discretely, the base features an open end tenon forming the skid base and legs. Finally, the custom designed hardware features metal and wood incorporating these same joinery concepts.
Inspired by a decades old relationship with solid wood, the Traverse collection is our way of letting the craft speak for itself. It begins with Ambrosia Maple which includes beautiful natural character markings that highlight the solid wood nature of the collection. We allow the natural worm holes and their characteristic markings to show through alongside the various grain patterns of the maple. From there the design determined that the joinery that is used in crafting solid wood furniture itself should be the focus. Details such as the box joint where the two solid wood surfaces are connected or more discretely, the base which features an open end tenon are left in plain view. It doesn't take a carpenter to appreciate the workmanship in this clever merging of time honored craftsmanship and modern style.
