David Francis has spent the past 25 years designing simple, dramatic pieces handcrafted in rattan, abaca, lampacanay, bamboo, mahogany, traditional hardwoods and arorog. He's done it so well, in fact, that for the last five of those years he's been nominated for the Pinnacle Award at the Fall High Point Market, given by his colleagues in the American Society of Furniture Designers, and he finally took it home for the first time this year.
Pieces from his 2011 collection continue the trend with items like a Bali Sideboard in mahogany with crushed bamboo drawer facings, the Bamboo Wood Charred Silver Console with a beveled glass top and charred silver paint, the brand new Allegria Lounge Chair with mitered corners and rawhide bindings, and the Diamante Dining Armchair (pictured) with a diamond webbed back in mahogany. Many of Francis' pieces can be had in up to 34 different finishes, and the collection is available now or at select retailers.
