Enrique Morales, the artist behind Madera Fina studio furniture, creates expertly crafted modern furniture from beautiful, high-quality materials. Offering everything from console tables and benches to ornate jewelry boxes, Madera Fina has something for everyone.
I like the way Enrique utilizes the natural appearance of the wood, sometimes combining multiple types of wood to create contrast without excessive paint or stains. His pieces strike a lovely balance between the pleasant imperfections of natural wood grain, and the clean, straight lines of modern minimalist furniture. The juxtaposition is similar to Andelko Oliveric’s naturally-shaped wood furniture pieces. Many of Enrique’s designs are available in custom sizes and materials, for a tailored appearance.
The artist’s skill and attention to detail is clear in his smaller and custom works, such as jewelry boxes, chopping blocks and a sculpture base. Each jewelry box rests atop a uniquely curved base, creating an asymmetrical look that is at least as beautiful as the items that will be stored inside.
