I just rolled back into town last night and I'm still sorting through all the great things I saw at ICFF and on the roadtrip home. One piece that did stand out for me at the show was this 7 Drawer Miniature Chest by Brian at Volk Furniture. Volk is a Brooklyn based company, and all the furniture is designed and made by Brian in the Brooklyn Navy Ship Yard. I had some time to look at this piece and some of the best parts about it are hard to capture with a picture. The detail work is superb, as is the tactile quality of the whole thing. The waxed wood drawer slides were flawless and make the piece feel very special. The knobs were salvaged off an old pump organ, and the drawer liners I believe were found by Brian's girlfriend. Modern, handmade, personal, beautiful, just the way furniture should be.
