Medina...
In the Arts & Crafts era most experts consider the homes and furniture designed by Charles and Henry Greene to be the ultimate designs of the period. They were true masters of design and creating new pieces influenced by their work is an incredible challenge for any furniture maker. The Greenes were strongly influenced by Asian designs and so their homes and furniture contain such subtle details as clouds lifts and Asian style joinery. In the Medina line I've included many of these classic details and have added many more including slots, square pegs and new shapes. This design line is very popular and by far the most extensive Celeski Studios offers and includes the Adriondack style chairs and settees, side and coffee tables in many sizes, several formal and backless benches, curved benches, chaises, deep seating sets including chairs, love seats and couches, dining tables for 4, 4+, 6, 8, 10, 12, a modular set that will seat 16 or more, round and square dining tables, dining chairs, stools and much more. In the future a bistro set and other pieces will be added. Other pieces possibly made by request.

Blacker...
Like the Medina line, the Blacker Line is strongly influenced by the work of Charles and Henry Greene. This design was originally created to carefully compliment one particular home that most consider the Greene's masterpiece: The Blacker House in Pasadena, California. The goal was furniture that is very subtle in its design, yet contain many details unique to the furniture in that particular home. All of the pieces are more complex to build and with detailing such as hand-made "pillowed" or rounded and raised square pegs.

Though new, this design line is becoming very popular and is already extensive. Celeski Studios offers and includes the Adriondack style chairs and settees, side and coffee tables in many sizes, several formal benches, chaises, deep seating sets including chairs, love seats and sofas, a modular dining set in two sizes that will seat 16 or more, square dining tables, dining chairs, stools and much more. In the future dining tables for 4, 4+, 6, 8, 10, 12, side cabinets and other pieces will be added. Other pieces possibly made by request.

Wallingford...
Combining the best of the Craftsman era: Stickley details, the famous Morris Chair and the practicality of Bungalow designs, the Wallingford is pure Arts & Crafts. This design line includes Adriondack style chairs and settees with a strong Morris Chair influence, side and coffee tables and backless benches. In the future a formal bench, stools and dining sets will be available. Other pieces possibly made by request.

Leschi...
The Leschi Design line was originally created to reflect one of the lesser known furniture companies of the Arts & Crafts era. The Limbert furniture company had an extensive catalog and much of work is very reminiscent of Stickley furniture. However, some of their pieces had some exquisite details including the use of various cut out areas. Their famous hall chair was the inspiration for the Leschi line. At this time, the Leschi line is the most contemporary of all the designs I offer and many clients with modern homes find this design most appropriate. Celeski Studios offers and includes Adriondack style chairs and settees, side and coffee tables in many sizes, several backless benches from 42" to 96", a wonderful 72" curved benches and chaise lounges. In the future deep seating sets, dining tables for 4, 4+, 6, 8, 10, 12, a modular set that will seat 16 or more, square dining tables, dining chairs, stools and more will be available. Other pieces possibly made by request.
