In the world of May Furniture Co., jewelry and furniture go hand in hand. A trained woodworker and master craftsman, designer Travis James proves—with his signature wood cuffs—that jewelry doesn’t need gemstones or precious metal to glow. We chatted with Travis about his process, his design philosophy, and his vision for the future of May Furniture Co.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your design background?
My design background is built of a stew of mediums including photography, drawing, sculpture, furniture, and playing music. My personality is sort of obsessive and orderly. My color palate for furniture is muted colors and monochromatic. I like earthen objects at times, and other times I like the geometric appropriations of nature, as seen in many Asian designs. My design philosophy for my furniture is to create pieces with a quiet strength and a feeling of harmony.
