English has little patience for all-or-nothing propositions. In life and design. As a result, South + English is the master of what we call combination pieces, which thoughtfully and unexpectedly mix materials. Enter Kristof, a 6-tier bookcase with intriguing Lucite details on the side panels. The mechanics of the wood/acrylic pairing are a bit tricky – which is why designs of this ilk are rare – but there’s no stopping English once an idea takes hold. Kristof is solid and transparent, simple and elegant. Shown in Black Coffee Oak, one of many fab finishes. Made in America. Clean Slate Collection.
South + English Clean Slate Collection pieces feel fresh, modern and in the moment. Yet, designs echo traditional forms and the manufacturing process is classic old school. Each solid-wood piece is made to order, bench made by skilled artisans with long experience in the furniture-making tradition. Finishes – nearly a dozen are available – are specially calibrated and nuanced, hardware is just right and lead times are about eight weeks from order finalization. Customization is always an option. At S+E, we enjoy professional collaborations with designers to ensure our product is a perfect fit for your project. Clean Slate is the professional designer’s go-to for both commercial and residential projects.
