A Shaker Table and Bench Handmade in the Northwest

January 26, 2012

Currently coveting: a Shaker-inspired table and bench in black walnut, made by Portland, OR-based furniture designer Reed LaPlant.

LaPlant makes a point of using traditional joinery techniques in his work, as in this clean-lined table and bench fastened with exposed tenon detailing. The pieces are available through Portland-based Schoolhouse Electric, which recently branched out from lights into home furnishings. "We work with fine craftsmen like Reed who are willing to put in motion 'small production runs' or case work of this caliber," says Schoolhouse Electric owner Brian Faherty.
