Artesano Contemporary Spanish Craftsman Collection
Rooted in tradition and inspired by contemporary shapes and clean lines, our Artesano Contemporary Spanish Craftsman collection looks to the past and future at once. Inspired by the furniture designs created by the first Spanish settlers in the American Southwest, with Native American and Mexican influences, each design is made to order in our New Mexico artisan workshop. Our carpinteros apply traditional woodworking techniques, such as mortise-and-tenon joinery and hand-hewn and adzed textured wooden finishes to create each hand-made piece. Much like the early pieces from centuries past, our designs are simple, with blocklike forms and restrained carved decoration, although the influence of modern art forms are also evident in the simple silhouettes. An emphasis on classic design, heirloom quality and superior materials are the expectation of each and every exquisite piece.
