Egypt II Side Table is part of the striped series line of furniture like this table https://www.cosmobarbaro.com/product/striped-series-coffee-table/. and an original that was made prior to it, which can be found here, https://www.cosmobarbaro.com/product/egypt-original/.
Featuring a striped, black milk paint detail on the legs. Egypt II Side Table was inspired by Egyptian furniture details like the dentil detail that shows up on the tophttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dentil. Egypt II features two solid maple drawers that finger joints. Material I feature is fiddle back maple and was sawn from recycled yard trees. It was also featured in a show “into the woods” at the Nan Miller Gallery in Rochester New York. https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/lifestyle/2016/03/18/nan-miller-goes-into-woods-wood-inspired-show/81907424/.
Egyptian art fascinates me because the furniture is still standing due to high engineering standards and the fine details that are put into the work. Dentil detail details, geometric designs and strong proportions all influence my work. The dentil detail on the top is a direct example of this. Overall proportions are strong and relate well with one another. The thickness and height of the legs in relation to how tall they are. The height depth and width of the the cabinet in relation to the proportion of the drawers really works well with one another.
