Jeup Furniture: Ripora Chair
Now that Joseph Jeup owns some CNC (computerized numerically controlled) machines, he can think increasingly about making more of his sculptural furniture designs. Freed from all that hand-hewing, this master of veneers may now focus his attention even more closely on hand-wrought finishes. Successful mass-produced items must widely suit, and the low-slung angle and open back to the Riparo chair have been carefully engineered for the comfort of tall and small alike. In two wood species--Santos Rosewood and Walnut--and twelve finishes. Trade only.
