Perfections for your Interiors

Wendy Maruyama, a world class woodworker and art furniture designer and maker, was constructing a China Trade-inspired cutting-edge chest for a commissioned show at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. She wanted special door pulls to enhance the piece and commissioned Lyn to design and make Chinese style tasseled pulls. Passing our drawings back and forth between California and Massachusetts we found a perfect match. Lyn turned knobs, dyed the silk and attached carved jade interlaced wthin silk tasseled braids. The piece later traveled to the Museum of Art in Florida, won design awards, and appeared in several publications.
