Furniture I Love: Stranger Furniture Edition

William Stranger makes beautiful furniture that doesn’t forget where it comes from. His designs always honor the wood both in craftsmanship and in his use of sustainable lumber. The Light Desk is a perfect example. The top is made of a single walnut board that still retains the sapwood and the live edge. For contrast, the base is a simple rectangle that houses a shelf and a drawer. The result is simple in the best possible way. This is the kind of piece that makes its presence known through balance and the beauty of the wood.

I also love his Monolith Bench and the Three Rivers Table.
