Splinter

Designed by Nendo.

Splinter is a line of furniture by design firm Nendo for Conde House featuring "peeled" wood features. This chair is our favorite piece in the Splinter line. The arm rest and back rest simply split to become the bottom frame and legs of the chair. This idea isn't necessarily new or crazy, but the execution of this design is what we are so amazed by. The grain is perfectly displayed in a soap washed oak finish. We haven't actually sat on one so we have no idea how sturdy it actually is. But, knowing how strong fine Japanese furniture can be, we would have no hesitation in taking a seat. These are only available in Japan, such a shame.

Worley's Lighting

Designed by Shelli.

Here at Enkle, we love putting small businesses like ours in the spotlight. Recently we came across Worley's lighting and we not only love their beautiful handmade lamps but we also love how they value handmade crafts and work as a family - just like Enkle. They work with clean lines and high quality woods and it shows in their products. Shelli and her family work out of their workshop in Rockhill, South Carolina. Although their office is charming and we would love to visit one day, you can easily buy their lamps directly on their online store here

Take a look! 

Cherner Arm Chair

Designed by Norman Churner in 1958.

These fantastically designed arm chairs invite you to sit down and get a hug from the solid beech bent wood arms. The simple and common bent plywood chair and legs are made beautiful and novel with a single piece of solid beech bent into shape with steam. These chairs are still made from the original specifications from Cherner's original drawings. These can be found at Hive Modern for around $1030.
