Finger Joints in Modern Furniture

Don't you love a piece of furniture that tells you how it was made? None of that plastic, seamless, or stapled-together stuff here. Instead, we've collected a few modern wood pieces that are finger jointed together. Take a look!

The expression of the joint in all of these furnishings says to us that these are quality pieces that are built well and beautifully. From a mid-century icon to a contemporary kitchen island, we're loving the finger joints we're seeing here. In contemporary, box-like furnishings, it's the details like these that make a piece.
