Sculptural furniture with its shapely forms can become voluptuous additions to your decor. The full-bodied approach to such furniture can best be seen by the work of John-Paul Melia and Lucy Tatam, who are the designers behind MeliaDesignUK. They work primarily from man-made boards and a range of real wood veneers, some of which are new and exotic. Each handmade design is finished with either a luxurious high-gloss polished lacquer or with a semi-matte laminate. The i.drawers sideboard or chest of drawers suits contemporary living spaces. Its three runnerless drawers glide out with the help of chromed air vents at the back of each drawer which release the vacuum. Colour choices are offered for this $5,995 sideboard.
The award winning Macassar Ebony real wood veneer coffee table is a bentwood luxury for $5,995. This handmade curvaceous beauty was meticulously finished with 10 coats of tough lacquer with sanding between coats – much the same way prestige cars are pimped. Fine sanding with five grades of sandpaper followed the last coat and then the final polish for a glass like sheen. The same finishing technique was also applied for the funky and cool looking luna drawers available in either dark wood or pale colours. This two drawer piece retails for $4,895. – Via
