Why should a tabletop be a simple slab of wood or glass and not a means of showing-off things that are important to you?

He designs and creates his furniture in the Los Angeles Arts District with the help of his faithful companion, Dr. Watson. The pieces are made with wood from 1920’s factories, 90-year-old grape crates and other repurposed materials.I especially love this Shadowbox Table, where I could show off some of my WWII aviation items. My Dad’s service in the Army Air Corps inspired my collection and it would be great to see the aviator goggles, leather fighter pilot’s cap, and colorful post cards on view every day. Michael Graham says he uses the table he built for himself to display books and hide the TV remote from Dr. watson.
His most stunning design may be this industrial floor lamp made out of wine barrel rings , a vintage surveyor’s tripod and an Edison style LED bulb. Enjoy browsing.
We can’t resist a product that is modern, well-designed and Made-in America. That’s how we ended up with two items from Floyd Design LLC in our home. The company has some newer items we wanted to tell you about.
The Table (yes, that’s its name) measures 32″ x 60″, and features a linoleum surface on birch plywood. It comes in two colors and is easy to assemble.Then there’s this cool little Side Table, which is designed to go together without tools and features a durable surface. It comes in four colors and is 15″ in diameter.There’s a lot more to see on the Floyd site, so check them out!

We’ve decided to expand our “What’s New” feature from one week to two. Hope you enjoy it.We’ve visited the Thomas Moser store in Boston several times and been amazed by the design perfection of its product line. Though its inspiration comes from 18th century America, this furniture would be at home in any modern room. The company’s two newest products are the Foreside Bed, shown at the top of the page, and the Hoops Mirror line.The mirrors, available in three sizes, take design cues from Shaker boxes and traditional mirrors, but have a modern twist. They are offered in walnut, white oak, and cherry.
The bed is almost stark in its simplicity, but a closer look reveals details that suggest a traditional Windsor Chair. Below are a few shots we took on our most recent trip to the store, located at:
