Exhibitions and Events
New York Design Week 2012
One of my favorite booths at ICFF this year was Volk Furniture. The Brooklyn-based company is dedicated to the design and fabrication of handcrafted, traditionally joined and finished wood furniture.The gorgeous, almost glowing wood is enhanced by thoughtful details like antique organ stops as drawer pulls, vintage typewriter keys as accents, and inlaid brass following the grain of the wood. Owner and designer Brian Volk Zimmerman’s eye for detail results in lining all his drawers with shirting fabric, and upholstering his wood frame chair in a Harris Tweed that is so nice, it should never have ended up so close to butts.
