In Photo: Dressing Table, Three Drawer Chest, Side TableNearly 10 years after establishing his namesake design studio in England, John Reeves took his first bow at High Point in the always-inventive Interhall section of the International Home Furnishings Center . Although such manufacturers as Henry Hall continue to?avail themselves of the designer’s sturdy and soulful perspective, his emphasis has clearly shifted toward his now Vietnam-based brand: ReevesDesign .
Mixing the East with a nod to the Dutch De Stijl movement is the Lacquer & Walnut collection. Lacquered shelves are snugly fitted through square posts to form the 4?¼-by-6-foot shelving system. The drawer and doors of the dressing table are deliberately proportioned to resemble a bento box. The three-drawer chest features self-closing runners. The two-tier side table stands at a bantam 2 feet, while the super-symmetrical bookcase rises nearly 7 feet above a generous drawer. The 10-piece collection is made of polyurethane-coated, Forest Stewardship Council–certified walnut frames topped in walnut veneer and fitted with MDF panels, lacquered blue or purple.
