Husband/wife designers Larry and Nancy Buechley have a history of bending rules. From their studio in a remote area of New Mexico, the duo have been twisting conventional logic for decades. The results of the artists turned self-taught furniture makers are dramatic twisting, turning masterpieces with impossible flowing lines.
“We use our artist minds to create movement as the pieces twist and turn through 3- dimension. We attempt to create functional pieces of sculpture, objects that can stand alone aesthetically, and that also serve purpose,” explains Larry.
The Buechley’s popular Wovenwood Coffee Table ($1800.00), carried at Sawbridge Studios, has best been described as “sculpture under glass.” With soft, fluid curves and intricate weaving patterns, at first glance it appears to be fashioned from leather. “Larry and Nancy have taken the process of bent wood lamination to a whole new level of artform,” says Sawbridge Studios’ Paul Zurowski.
Sawbridge Studios, headquartered in a 4500-square-foot converted 1880s livery stable in suburban Chicago, carries the works of over 80 individual, one-of-a-kind artisans and craftsmen from around the country. They have grown to become the largest retail sources in the U.S. for handcrafted, American-made home furnishings and accessories and ship anywhere at www.sawbridge.com.
