Veiled Stool

Lacquered MDF, industrial felt, PET plastic, steel, 2017, 15"w x 16"h x 15"d

In reaction to my own efforts to reduce my living space, I am exploring the ways we utilize and appreciate our furniture when we have limited possessions. Veiled Stool explores how natural aesthetic quality and multifunctioning can work together to create a meaningful object. The simple organic shape of the top and pattern of the veil are inspired by mushrooms. It captures the charm of the natural form and uses the curious sense of space created by the veil to store objects.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
