Piedmont by Skram
Skram Furniture has come to embody what it is to merge past and present; for Skram, that means traditional woodworking technique brought into the realm of modern design. With the introduction of Piedmont, a Skram line dedicated to highlighting the modest, hand-built, and beautiful solid wood furniture that in previous centuries came to represent American craft, Skram lead designer Jacob Marks feels his furniture is connected more than ever with history. Take the Piedmont two-drawer coffee table, which Skram likes to build in solid cherry. The table’s use of sliding dovetails and minimal amounts of glue does more than pay homage to tradition: it enables a highly functional, durable, beautiful, and relevant piece of furniture, perfectly suited to a range of contemporary environments. And because Skram values building non-disposable goods for a non-disposable world, all Piedmont products are built using sustainably harvested timbers.
