John Houshmand's tables mix hardwoods with glass, bronze and steel. Houshmand, a musician, sculptor, and contractor, opened a Tribeca storefront to showcase his line of furniture made from large pieces of American hardwoods (maple, cherry, elm, black walnut, and mulberry) in combination with glass and steel. Houshmand sources the woods from his Delaware County farm, from other local farmers—and sometimes even by tracking down the rightful owners of trees fallen by the roadside. The resulting designs are simple, sophisticated, and entirely handmade on Houshmand's farm. Pricey, to be sure. But as Houshmand is quick to point out, you’re buying a piece of history.
