Graphic Chest of Drawers by Ethnicraft
In his quest to add movement to the surface, designer Alain van Havre started layering and combining triangular shapes. Before he knew it he had created a visually enticing composition out of teak and the Graphic design was born. By using multiple layers, a sense of depth and dynamism is created in the intricate arrangement. Motion and warmth are added by further perfecting the natural attributes of wood.
- Wood pieces are unique and may come with natural variations. All in all, the natural characteristics are called “Medullary Rays” as they are the unique cellular structures found in solid wood (especially in White Oak).
- The type of cut known as “Quarter-Sawn” is revered for its beauty, strength, and prevention of warping.
- Quarter-sawn oak is more structurally sound than flat-sawn oak, resisting cupping, twisting, warping, moisture penetration, and raised grain. The flecks and the rays that appear on the face of the boards as a result of cutting along the growth rings are sought-after features of quarter-sawn white and red oak.
Light and shade variations will also enhance the beauty of the chest of drawers. Please note that wood products are unique and may come with natural variations.
