Why does rope suddenly seem so modern? We especially like these rope-wrapped black American walnut dining chairs, made by hand by Doug McCullough, an East Coast-raised, Los Angeles-based woodworking artisan.

McCullough (his brother is designer Jack McCullough of Proenza Schouler; somehow not a surprise) studied woodworking in Maine before setting up his own shop in New York. After heading west, McCullough opened his own studio, called DM/DM, where he makes his fanatically detailed Danish-inspired pieces. Go to DM/DM for more information.
