Oh my goodness - what a stunning piece! The craftsmanship is impeccable. It s indeed a petite little table but the coating on the snakeskin glistens and the piece really packs a significant decorative punch, particularly if you choose a lively color. Eileen is so lovely to work with. I couldn't be happier with this little gem. Thank you! Off to commission another, larger one....

About

Bringing Back What is Good, What is Beautiful, What is Useful, What is Lasting!

Having been away from the furniture design world and been successful in my career, I retired from my job and felt compelled to return to the work I loved. You know what they say “once an artist, always an artist”. It gets in your blood and you just can’t give it up forever.

Being retired at a fairly young age, I was free to do whatever I chose. Having kept fairly current with furniture design, I was aware of the resurgence in collecting unique Karl Springer pieces and decided to return to my love of creating furniture pieces that are an object of extraordinary luxury and workmanship.

Inspired by iconic Karl Springer pieces and classic furniture pieces from the past, my goal was to create and finish small tables and boxes in the Karl Springer style of wrapping them with various coverings such as exotic hides, snakeskin, or fabric. This was a skill that I had learned many years ago when I was trained as a custom furniture artisan in the Karl Springer workshop during the 70’s and 80’s.

I am very fortunate to work with an outstanding woodwork artisan, who constructs my furniture pieces based on my design specifications. With the help of the world wide web and a great deal of time, I gather hides and fabric from all over the world to use in my work.

Every time I complete a piece of furniture, I take pleasure in knowing that “the art” of covering objects in exotic materials is not lost and happily have been enjoying creating designs and accessories that are a tribute to those years of incredible Karl Springer design.

Hi, Welcome to my Shop!
Everything that you see for sale here is handmade by me. Each piece I create is an inspired work of art with great attention to detail paid to selection and matching of snakeskin as well as the crafting and finishing. There will be natural variations in the snakeskin used and no two items will be alike. The time and effort along with exotic materials I use for each of my pieces creates signature, one of a kind items. I will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have concerning the works that you see in my shop.
