|THE AMAZING CREATIVITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP OF ALLAN LAKE FURNITURE|
|2 years ago 0|
Each piece of Allan Lake is furnishings is made from traditional British Hardwoods featuring layers of different woods that have been glued and clamped together before being cut into curvaceous silhouettes, others present sections of wood that are relief carved and then stained with bold colour hues, while still others feature the living edges of the wood itself.
The Starburst Bedroom Suite is a one off collection that uses a combination of woods to create the stunning elements within each design.
The combination of the layered woods within the four laminated legs of the Rainbow Desk creates an interesting contrast between linear and flowing lines that is somewhat lessened by the purposefully random curves within the leg profiles.
The Starburst Blanket Chest uses the same laminate wood construction as the Rainbow Desk but the outline of the legs is decidedly different.
While Allan excels at creating curves within his pieces, he also likes to feature nature is curves such as the living edges of the Refined Rustic bedframe seen here.
The Starburst Tallboy is part of the bespoke Starburst collection and features intricate Walnut handles on 6 drawers with dovetail joinery and laminate hardwood bottoms.
