This collection of contemporary furniture by Peter Pierobon is carefully crafted, aesthetically remarkable and sure to add flavor to any living or office space. WIth over 25 years of experience in sculpting and design, Pierobon has mastered his craft as he meticulously handcrafts each piece using combinations of exotic materials such as metal, stone and wood from local sources. This comes from his drive to minimize the environmental impact of his work.

The Vancouver native is inspired by the natural beauty and elements of the West Coast, and uses the movement and patterns of the natural world around him to craft his designs. The end result is furniture pieces that are both elegant and structurally sound that can fit into any space. "My inspirations have largely come from the world of fine art and in particular from indigenous cultures around the world. Primarily made of wood, my furniture seeks to satisfy functional needs while challenging precedents of design and concept," says Pierobon.

Implications - In a highly visual society, consumers give equal priority to the aesthetic of their possessions as to its functional purpose. This marriage of stylish and practical is an essential element across a variety of industries from fashion to furniture and elsewhere.
