Dealer Chris Malcolmson, Spain

IGMA Artisan Chris Malcolmson handcrafts detailed wood furniture using the finest traditions of period cabinet making. Every piece is painstakingly designed in minute detail using only the materials and techniques available in that era. Chris uses a wide variety of exotic timbers, both reclaimed from period antiques and from an extensive collection of rare veneers. Every wood joint is carefully considered and every marquetry motif is designed specifically for each piece.
