WOODCRAFTERS SIDE CHAIRView full Traverse collection
How much of an impact the seating has to the style of a dining space is often overlooked. In the case of the Traverse collection opting for the Woodcrafters chair offers a decidedly more casual look that can give the room a modern-rustic vibe. A couple of things to note on the Woodcrafters chair is the butterfly joint effect that is applied to the chair. This aesthetic replicates the joinery used in more primitive furniture and adds can be seen on both the seat and the back of each chair.
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.
