Custom Cottonwood Table

Custom Cottonwood End Table - 14 x 14 x 24 H inches

This was a fun custom project for a local client who was inspired by our popular Cottonwood Cube Table to create a bespoke design that was perfect for her space. This great little table in a triangular shape with the natural curved edge of the tree at one end was harvested locally and  is eco-friendly since it was created from wood taken from the bosque (woodlands) along the Rio Grande River in New Mexico. A donation from the sale of the table was made to Tree New Mexico, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring sustainable forests in urban and rural communities and natural areas through restoration, public education and advocacy. 

Also have a look below at some great images of the trees being felled!

New Kuba Pillow Styles

Kuba Cloth Pillow

Kuba Cloth Pillows -19 x 19.5 inches + Free Delivery

When designers look for Kuba Cloth Pillows, they turn to Pfeifer Studio. These wonderful handmade textiles are a traditional craft from Africa, created using primitive techniques that have been employed for centuries. They get their name from the Kuba tribe of central Congo. The tribe' s women begin the process of creating the cloths by beating palm leaves so that the leaf will separate into fibers. The men then use a loom to weave the fibers. The process then goes back to the women who decorate the cloth. Sometimes they use a “u” stitch to create a carpet pile like texture as well as motifs. Other times they use appliqué methods to create patterns and motifs. Each cloth can take over a month to make. 
Kuba Cloth Pillow
Kuba Cloth Pillow -15 x 20.5 inches + Free Delivery

In the past the cloth was only made by the most important and wealthy men in the tribe. Their wives were the only women in the tribe who had enough spare time to embroider the cloth. Ordinary women were kept too busy with their work in the fields, cooking and raising their children. Thus the cloth became a symbol of wealth and status. When a major event occurred such as the induction of a new chief, the women of the tribe would sew many cloths together to make a royal robe. One popular village song describes how, a man was offered a Mercedes Benz car or a Kuba cloth by his mother. He chose the Kuba cloth after wisely noting that it would last longer.

Limited Edition Metallic Stool Tables

We had a lot of fun working on our new Metallic Stool Tables. They are limited in quantity since we only had a few of the wooden frames available, but if they prove to be a success they may return in a new form at a later time. 

Out local artisans meticulously applied faux silver or gold leafing with a distressed finish over the shapes. We loved how they turned out. If you like them order soon, because (we hope) they won't last long!
