Jerry Jacobs Design San Francisco 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_02 Tables and casegoods Christian Liaigre: Galion Console
“I particularly like this console because of its curved, half-circle legs. Its form shows how creatively wood can be used, and gives a sexy twist to a soft, cool, and contemporary design.” 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_03 Tables and casegoods Joined + Jointed: Concave bookshelf
Joining two of these bookshelves makes quite a statement. Their concave design adds a new dimension to the standard shelving look, and it reminds me of yachts—especially after watching the America’s Cup recently in San Francisco.” 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_04 Tables and casegoods Kreoo: Arcaico
“I like the grandness and the flexibility of this table, which could work well in a store entrance or for the display of an exclusive collection. It has a great cantilever, and the cylindrical marble legs can be made with any marble you like.”

Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_06 Tables and casegoods Iacoli & McAllister: Hialeah Table
“The design of the Hialeah Table, combined with its mix of materials, reminds me of some of my favorite pieces of jewelry. This isn’t a surprise since Seattle’s Iacoli & McAllister designs jewelry as well as furniture and lighting.” 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_07 Tables and casegoods Davis: Span
“The surface of Span extends twelve feet horizontally and is supported only by four slim legs. It is simply jaw-dropping. The sleek profile and clean lines make it especially well-suited for collaborative projects in a contemporary setting.” 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_08 Tables and casegoods Established & Sons: Udukuri
“I am particularly drawn to this modern table’s stunning surface of brightly-colored epoxy resin. It is made using traditional Japanese techniques that expose the natural grain of Douglas fir. Each table is one of a kind.”

Director of Design


New York 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_10 Tables and casegoods COORDINATION: Thread Trestles
“We always seek ways for guests to personalize their experience. The design detail of this table expresses its function: a threaded walnut leg and colorful steel frame allow the table height to be adjusted to suit the user.” 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_11 Tables and casegoods Böwer: Desk Pad
“While designing guestrooms for a new micro-hotel brand, we scrutinized what travelers need to work in a small space. Part midcentury modern, part Donald Judd sculpture, this compact desk delivers a lot: a leather work surface, colorful dividers, and integrated power.” 
Designers Select: Tables and casegoods_12 Matter: HS1
“This system combines shelf support and a bookend into a single bracket. Graphic colors and materiality evoke the work of Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé. The palette options are versatile: black powder-coated metal with ebony wood reads cool, while copper with reclaimed oak is warm and rich.”
