I love the more delicate proportions of this updated design. One of the things that I do not like about the Arts&Crafts style is that it can get too heavy.

Your details are wonderful and craftsmanship is impeccable.

A work of art. I agree with Todd that Arts and Craft can look ‘dowdy’ but this updates a classic.

That is one sweet desk and chair. Curly Cherry and QS Sycamore is a nice combination. I really like the chair. Do you have plans for the chair?

I like the updating to the Craftsman style, it is often overdone. Great details, I really like the glass.

Have your say...
