How can you not fall in love with this exquisitely crafted collection of furnishings by John Houshmand. Exposing the flawless beauty in each wooden detail, these functional forms look more like works of art. As I flipped through his collection, each piece seemed to be more beautiful than the last. Maybe it’s something about the simplicity of it all. How the pieces are all so powerful, yet so simple.
What was the driving force behind this collection?
“To show what wood really looks like. In our world, mankind strips all life from its underlying individuality in exchange for the uniform of mass production. Trees are truly becoming a lost species.Trees are the guardians of everything sacrosanct. They hold secrets of the past and relinquish everything necessary to sustain the future. They bare their souls providing us with the air we breathe, the shelter in which we live, and the food that nourishes our very beings. We allow trees to do the talking. We simply listen.” – John Houshmand
