Durable and dense, tamarind wood is distinguished by its wide range of tones, from pale near-yellow to deep brown, within a single tree. This tamarind console shows off its contrasting hues to striking effect. The concept of living in harmony with nature is an underlying theme of the furniture and accent pieces from Asian Art Imports. Wally Stryk, who founded the company in 1998, and his wife, Pat, source furniture made from reclaimed wood, recycled architectural pieces, and vintage accents and tableware from Thailand and other Asian countries. These furnishings beautifully enhance even the most urban, contemporary surroundings with a sense of nature’s serenity, as well as the grace of centuries of artistic tradition.
