Hudson Valley woodworker and furniture designer Thomas J. Ptacek was showcasing his designs at ICFF — a strong showing of attractive furniture recognizable by the use of cross-cut salvaged antique beams in much of the work. My favorite pieces were storage related: a desk with many small drawers and a slim-profile shelving system that hides the clutter and takes advantage of vertical space.
THOMAS J PTACEK MUST SEES:
• Bookcase — remarkably slim profile is perfect for long hallways or high-ceilinged rooms (and it hides everything!)
• Writing Desk with Hutch
