Rustic Interior Design

 

This page is an introduction into the colourful world of contemporary rustic furnishings hand crafted by the author. In the words of the foremost master of the craft, North American furniture maker and designer George Nakashima describing  “woodworker” as one who makes things with wood, adopting an approach that seeks to integrate both art and craft. The woodworker has a new place, actively involved in the design and production of unique items made of wood……. the utility of an object, the forms developed are vital. The necessary skills and the resultant beauty must be there. Arts and craft should be based on pure truth, taking materials and techniques from the past to synthesize with the present. We should be content to work on a small scale and integrally with nature and not violate it.”
