Figured Woods

Figured woods

 Figured woods integrate beautifully as focal points in contemporary modern furniture design. As door panels or drawer fronts, it draws the eye into a contemplative gaze.
 The patterns echo movement found in nature. Curly figure rises from the surface then dives back down in waves. It evokes sensations of watching meadow grasses undulating in a breeze. Some figure patterns flow like the surface of water. Oriented along its length, the ribbon figure of sapele resembles the undisturbed surface of flowing water. Mottled figure introduces grain flow diversions like rocks in a creek bed.
