Art and history seem to have an inspiring way of repeating themselves. The 1960’s French film movement called Cinema Verite or “truth cinema” valued naturalism and realism above all the creative aesthetics. Similarly, the most sophisticated styling in today’s high-end design finds its voice in the authenticity of natural materials, organic textures and clean architectural lines. The Vérité collection is crafted from random planks of sawn 5mm European White Oak veneers juxtaposed against distressed aluminum in an antiqued gun metal finish. The veneers show all the hallmarks of naturally-aged wood, including knots and season splits. End grains are cut 10mm thick to accentuate the beauty of these natural characteristics. Unique to this collection is a special water-based topcoat from the residential flooring industry that offers exceptional protection without “wetting” the appearance or natural coloration of the wood. The result is a portfolio of original designs offering a sophisticated take on casual contemporary style.
- Like the rest of the collection, the modern organic White Oak veneers and wrapped pitted aluminum create a handsome pairing and let the materials do the talking
- Verite features sawn planks of European White Oak in their natural state and will show all of the hallmarks of natural dried wood, including knots, color variation, and cracking
- Although finished in a highly protective top coat, every Verite top will vary in appearance and coloration from piece to piece.
- Wood top and pedestal back with metal supports in front and back, recessed wooden plinth base
