I guess its fair to say that here at squarepeg we really have two true loves – mid-century furniture and beautifully crafted furniture that’s locally made. You know my love of mid-century so today I thought I would post some pictures of the tables we are stocking that have been locally crafted. The elegant simplicity of all these pieces is just so hard to beat.
Rick Knopke has been working his craft for many years now and squarepeg currently stocks two of his tables. Both coffee tables are made from a wood veneer on marine ply with a demountable stainless steel base. The tables are priced at $1, 950 each.
Also on the floor is piece by local Freo craftsman Lewis Waters. Lewis’s designs are all about simplicity, durability and innovative construction techniques. The coffee table is handcrafted from Australian wattle ($790).
We think there is a lot to be said for furniture that is hand crafted. For one thing, long after you have forgotten how much you paid for a piece, you will still remember what it is that you fell in love with. And it will last a lifetime. Or two or even three.
And its locally made.
