Kipp Stewart // Maker of Many Things
Trained as an architect, Kipp Stewart has distinguished himself as a prolific mid century (and beyond) American furniture designer. His passion for all of the arts, painting, photography and architecture has led to notable projects such as Big Sur’s first luxury resort, the Ventana Inn. The inn built in harmony with the Big Sur landscape is a potent showcase for eco-conscious modern architecture. He cites the late Charles Eames with whom he worked, as an important influence in his process of design.
These “Wishbone” nightstands were another collaboration with Stewart MacDougall for the Drexel Declaration collection. Constructed of walnut, the top floating drawer with porcelain pulls, floats over the planar shelf supported by sculptural legs, c.1958.
