David Brunicardi Furniture

sande-wavetable.jpgBased in San Francisco, David Brunicardi Furniture produces suave, hand-made pieces that are as versatile as they are functional. According to their website, almost all of their work utilizes a high quality sustainable or "rediscovered" wood. Their Sande Wave Coffee Table takes its inspiration from the flow of water, which creates a nice little space for books, magazines, remotes, cd's and anything else that usually lives on or around your coffee table. It is part of a new line, Sande, which utilizes sustainable hardwood from Equador.sande-magbench.jpgAlso from the Sande line, the "Mag" Table is equally happy as either a bench or a coffee table, complete with a unique storage space for magazines and other coffee table fare. Like the rest of the furniture in this collection, this snazzy table is made by hand and made to order; lead time is typically anywhere from four to eight weeks from start to finish.

swampthing-dining.jpgEqually unique are the products from the "Swamp Thing" line. The wood is "rediscovered," as they put it, from a 200+ year-old stand of over 1000 trees in a wet, swampy forest in the southern U.S. that was blown over in a storm in 1998. The wood is SmartWood-certified, and each table is made unique by the natural imperfections, like knots, worm holes, pitch pockets, spalting, etc., that are left intact. There is also a cocktail table and breakfast table in the collection, and each is available in poplar, maple or ash. There's a lot more to see, including more furniture for sitting, sleeping and storage, over at their website. David Brunicardi Furniture
