I adore Dering Hall’s daily features and in particular their “Shop with a Designer” column, so you can imagine my delight when I learned that two of our Marcali pieces were included in today’s curated list by celebrated Chicago designer, Frank Ponterio. His list, celebrating the Beauty of American Craftsmanship can be found here.
Of the Niobe Banquette, Ponterio writes:
“The husband-and-wife team behind Marcali Designs Inc create traditional designs meant to be passed down from generation to generation. I love the hand-carved wood back, tufting and nail head detail and find that this rounded bench would fit as easily in a cozy breakfast nook as in a formal interior.”
And of the Emerson Side Chair he says:
“Through the extensive finishing options, the transformative quality of this chair is front and center. Whether it’s upholstered or all wood, the classic shape keeps it rooted in tradition while the flared back leg, which drew me to the piece initially, offers a subtle flourish.”
Be sure to check out the complete list. It is quite impressive. You should also take a look at Frank Ponterio’s impressive portfolio at his website , and you can see more of our Marcali products on Dering Hall and on our Marcali Designs website.
