Edward Hale has spent years perfecting his line of easily assembled furniture (Remember, we featured his first prototypes a couple of years ago) called Frame + Panel. The collection boasts clean lines and includes custom hardware that acts as essential design elements on each piece. Hale was inspired by the functional aesthetics of the Shakers, along with the quality craftsmanship and their thoughtful use of materials. The same can be said for his recently launched, full line of furniture.
Frame + Panel brings forth reasonable price points and while normally owner-assembled furniture was a means of reducing costs, they see it as a way to engage with the customer. The custom hardware makes assembly easy and will, no doubt, offer the buyer a sense of pride when putting the pieces together.
