This is the woodwork of Peter Murkett. The taproot is New England, home to many trades for hundreds of years, its forests a source of material, its culture an inspiration. The Shakers once thrived here, and their legacy of industrious simplicity endures. At New England Modern, we make the old new, practicing time-honored methods of work in our own authentic style. The work has spare, lively detail, and stands on its own, at home in any setting, itself the next tradition.
