Terrace Shelves were born from the desire to design a shelf that broke the mould and displayed objects in a new and unique way. Most available shelves are linear and hold objects at a single level, so we wanted to create something unique, with depth and character.
The design of the Terrace Tables and Shelves reference terrace farming practices widely utilised in mountainous regions of the Far East and South America. The range aims to merge art and function, to create distinctive yet practical furniture. The terraces are carved out of the wood to fashion smooth, sweeping contours and flat, serviceable platforms. The play of light and shadow along these meandering curves and adjoining surfaces further accentuate the stunning beauty and craftsmanship of each piece.
Terrace Shelves are an imaginative and refreshing alternative to standard shelves. They are available in 3 different shapes/sizes, and have been designed with platforms at different heights to break away from the usual linear aesthetic, whilst offering ample storage space. Each platform can be used as a podium to showcase your beautiful home accessories, photos, art or travel mementos.
Making the Terrace Shelves is a to-and-fro process between computer aided machining and expert craftsmanship. Each shelf is made from 2 halves – suitable planks of wood are hand selected to ensure quality, planed to the correct depth and finish, hollowed out to remove excess weight in the final product, joined together to form a single piece, carved to form the terraces and bracket cavities, and then finished by hand. The process is labour intensive and a tribute to automation and expert craftsmanship.Did you know:
