Pierre Gonalons Debuts His Woodwork

“I had never worked with wood before,” admits French furniture designer Pierre Gonalons, who has long been inspired by the painted-timber folk furniture of northern Europe. So for his latest collection, Gonalons collaborated with a traditional cabinetmaker in Bourgogne to create chairs, tables, and cabinets that pair colorfully stained frames with live-edge slabs. Says Gonalons: “It’s simple, it’s sincere, it’s not overdecorated.” pierregonalonom
