Gareth Neal’s unique occasional tables pay homage to historic design through new innovations in wood carving technology.

The exterior structures of the occasional tables have been meticulously chipped away to reveal interior shapes that emulate traditional Louis XV furniture styles. Across his repertoire, Neal combines CNC technology and three-dimensional computer drawing with traditional techniques in wood carving to create unique contemporary interpretations of historic subject matter. Neal’s works can be seen as “contemporary relics,” reawakening interest in the historic while offering a fresh approach to contemporary design.

In 2002, Gareth Neal established his design practice in the creative hub of East London. Since then, his repertoire of works has received critical acclaim and recognition in numerous publications and exhibitions worldwide. His George III chest of drawers resides in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and he is currently collaborating with Zaha Hadid on a line of innovative sculptures inspired by ancient vessels.

As the artist works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality and finishes may be accommodated.
