Charred Geometric Commode
Charred Pine, Clear Pine
15 1/2"W 24"H 16"D
Edition of 25. Here our single drawer modern interpretation of the traditional bedroom mainstay is rendered in charred Loblolly pine; with mitered edges, the undulating texture wraps the case in deep color. As a counter point, the graphic, triangular tapered legs remain clear and golden. The cabinet is scaled for a place beside the bed or sofa with room for a lamp, several books and a glass of water.
The Charred Collection evolved from the traditional roots of ancient Japanese wood construction, which emphasized a need for rot and bug tolerance while maintaining a consistent structural integrity. Our burning process, based on this model, entails binding three boards into a chimney for a controlled burn over a small firebox. The resulting boards are wire brushed and receive multiple coats of a clear zero VOC, water based finish. This ensures their durability, functionality, and longevity as an elegant and unexpected addition to a space.
