Modern Sophisticated Warmth.
The Traverse bent plywood table lamp takes its inspiration from the gorgeous tart cherry trees found in around Traverse City, Michigan. The lamp has a classic shape with a modern bent ply twist that will make a statement beside the couch, on a sideboard, or in the office or bedroom. It features a gorgeous walnut outer layer that adds a bit of sophisticated warmth to any room.
Each lamp is handmade in my Troy, MI studio. Its modern, minimal aesthetic is courtesy of the hand-layered bent plywood construction which creates a stronger yet lighter material than solid wood. I start out with 17 layers of real wood that I glue, layer, mold, trim, sand, and finish by hand, to-order so each one is impeccably made and completely unique. The satin oil finish creates a rich, natural look that’s durable and is water- and stain-resistant without requiring frequent re-application. It’s applied by hand to ensure complete coverage, optimal thickness and a durable hand-rubbed lustre, so the Traverse will keep its gorgeous good looks for years to come.
You don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what one of my lovely customers had to say about the Traverse Lamp:
