Welcome to Intrinsic Art
Using beautiful and unique hand selected wood slabs from around the world, our woodworkers handcraft furniture using time honored techniques. Please enjoy our gallery of one-of-a-kind, individualized wood furniture products and art pieces.
Intrinsic- to belong naturally. Intrinsic Art wood pieces stay true to the essential nature of the wood. Using lumber that has been cut into slabs of the desired thickness, but instead of cutting away any knots or flaws to create symmetrical boards with smooth, square edges, those natural elements are left intact and only the bark itself is removed. Initially made popular by legendary midcentury-modern furniture designer and architect George Nakashima, whose sculptural pieces paired clean-lined bases with tops that showcased wood’s natural beauty through butterfly joints, a live edge and heavily burled or figured grain, this holistic approach to honoring wood’s beauty — flaws and all — has again captured the design world’s attention.
