Let’s get a wee bit confessional for a moment, shall we? In the fast-paced, low-budget world in which we live, some of us may admire craftsmanship in theory but pass it over in favor of what’s quick and cheap when we get down to the wire. It’s not something we’re proud of, so here at Furniture Fashion we like to shine a light on as many hard-working designers and craftspeople as possible, mainly to foster a public appreciation of their talents and efforts. Today’s subject is no exception; in fact, it features one of the most respected forms of furniture construction in existence. This dovetail shelving by Reeves Design requires no hardware for assembly or disassembly; the tongue-in-groove approach to its joints provides a perfect fit without the need for extra nuts, bolts, glue or other accessories to hold it together. One might say it’s the most independent yet versatile kinds of furniture on the market, with its ability to come down in mere moments, only to be reconstructed again just as easily. Made of oak and partially lacquered with a white finish for contrast between the vertical and horizontal pieces, the piece stands 51.5″ wide, 71″ tall and 15″ deep.
