Whether creating a hall table, console or custom cabinet, each piece is made at the highest level of craftsmanship using traditional dovetail joinery. Each piece is hand-rubbed with natural oil finishes.


All furniture is heirloom quality, made by hand includes the signature features of Asian or Chinese joinery, intricate hand-pierced, or stack-cut, inlaid/parquetry designs.
