The request that resulted in the sycamore veneer Nautilus table was very open, says furniture designer and builder, Marc Fish. The client wanted "a large statement piece, with maybe a hint of the sea - its location being a large loft style apartment overlooking the English Channel."
Fish is one of the wood world's eminent makers and designers, working from his Robinson House Studio on Newhaven, in England.
Much as the Polder family's craftsmanship draws customers, so too does the ability to present their goods in a delightful way online.
For the featured project, he was inspired by a nautilus shell - wondering what it might look like inside - and Fish soon found out. He designed the Nautilus table based on the shell's interior structure. Another seashore inspiration was the Mollusk table.
