For our debut showing at ICFF, we created this one-of-a-kind grand scale textile with which introduced a new, space-defining concept of custom embroidery. And as long time admire of O&G Studio, we have continued to be inspired by their beautiful furniture and were thrilled to work with one of their pieces for this project. Our hand-cut, appliqued and embroidered wall piece and cushion pair beautifully with the strong lines of their Athenaeum settee.
"Designing this textile was an exciting departure from our usual smaller-scale, narrative approach to embroidery. In the end we created what feels like a living of art. I look forward to introducing this excitement into other spaces." - Designer Stephanie Housley

Builder and designer Brian Volk-Zimmerman's handcrafted, traditionally joined finished wood furniture pairs perfectly with textile designer Stephanie Housley's illustrative take on embroidery. Their shared appreciation for the continued pleasure derived from well-loved objeets led the pair to explore the concept together to create something new. VOLK x Coral & Tusk credenzas, stools and coffee tables feature unique embroideries developed with careful consideration for the use of the finished piece and the enjoyment obtained from the power of and artfully crafted object.
