By Rosemary Thornton, contributing editor
The Vita chair and ottoman blend contemporary good looks with traditional materials such as American black cherry and tufted leather. The furniture is built on an ergonically-curved, solid cherry frame.

According to the manufacturer, this piece is a "tribute to German-born architect Mies van der Rohe" (best known for his famous quote "less is more").

These two pieces also incorporate elements of the Arts and Crafts movement (1910s and 20s) and the American Shaker period (1830s). Made wholly in America, all furniture is guaranteed for the lifetime of the original owner.
