Valets in jarrah

A Sydney woman commissioned this pair of valets in jarrah recently. It took four drawings before everyone was happy, but that is not unusual.

Valets, like chairs, have such a rigorous blend of requirements; functionality, style and body language.

We were all very happy with the whimsical nature of this design; there is an almost cartoonish quality to them. We were also delighted with the beautiful colour match. Jarrah has such a lot of colour variation within the species that colour matching is often problematic.

This pair is truly a “pair” made from the same log and beautifully composed by Alex MacFarlane.
