Get to work

As WAG continues its “Year of Power,” we are turning to “brain power” for our October issue’s theme.

Our latest issue offers stories about inventors and problem solvers and much more.

That got us thinking about working and how great it is to carve out a place at home where you can do things with style as well as ease. Forget about the laptop balanced on the kitchen counter or trying to go through files as they spill onto the dining room table.

We got in touch with Ethan Abramson, the furniture designer we profiled back in June, to see what he might suggest as an ideal setup.

And no surprise, he sent us some great options, including the Irving Chair and the custom Legacy Desk, shown here.

Both are, as Abramson describes, “hand-built, using classic and modern woodworking techniques and protected with a hand-applied all-natural finish.”

The Irving Chair, in solid white oak, sells for $630, with discounts available on multiples.

The Custom Legacy Desk, as shown here, features solid walnut and reclaimed New York woods. The desk is a custom order so it can be sized – and will be priced – for the client’s specializations.

Who wouldn’t want to sit down and get some work done here, whether you place the pair in a home office, library or even bedroom corner?

Abramson also shares that he’s just relocated to a new studio space in Mamaroneck, which features “great space with large windows and tons of light.”

Sounds like that mean lots of great new designs are in Abramson’s future – and we can’t wait to see them.
