Spats is a casegoods collection based on a simple concept that uses drawers as trays. In the stowed position trays can act as drawers. When fully pulled out from the tables the trays can be used for serving or can be inserted on stringers just below, creating another useful surface. The contrasting light and dark finish accentuates the difference between the top surface and supports. The name ‘Spats’ comes from the contrasting finishes that is reminiscent of spats, the cloth gaiter that covered the upper shoe and ankle commonly used in early 20th century men’s formal wear. Pieces include: coffee table, end table, credenze and buffet. Pieces soon to be added are: bar/television cabinet, carb table, dining table, bookcase, and additional coffee table.
