Surf & Turf Exteriors

Shagreen: Individual sting ray skins dyed in a desired color and typically arranged in a diamond pattern, create a complex aggregate of color and dimension with a dramatic white eye centered on each skin. This exotic material has a long history in the decoration of furniture and has maintained it’s appeal for centuries. We designed and fabricated the shagreen covered armoire pictured below.

Cowhide: We explored using a material that is typically reserved for rugs and soft surfaces and applied it to the exterior of this armoire. We integrated solid bronze, machined, braised and patinaed handles, trim and custom full height hinges.
