Drawing upon the inner beauty “geode” theme, the Contemporary Classics series features highly figured, lustrous veneers displaying amazing depth and “chatoyance”, or the way the light plays on its surface, as well as carved textures and polychromatic finishes. This work is tantalizing because it’s as if they want to be touched. In fact, Grove often puts a sign on them – Please Touch – because they’re so tactile. This series is the basis of Grove’s national presence in galleries and shows. The work is customizable, with choices of style, function, configuration, exterior carvings, finishes, colors and woods. Extremely functional, these pieces are aesthetically pleasing and have been made into dressers, buffets, bedside tables, end tables, coffee tables, consoles, shelving, etc. and feature water-resistant finishes, European hardware, full extension soft close drawers and custom drawer pulls.
