Before he turned to furniture design, Stephen Redlich had pursued very different careers in mechanical engineering and software development. Today he showcases his wood creations at Heri Furniture Design, a diminutive showroom nestled in East Chinatown. A jack-of-all-trades, he often incorporates craft-inspired detailing like webbed rope and hand stitching into his pieces. Take the aptly named Stitched stool, which features a perimeter of threaded nylon needlework not unlike the seams found inside a tailored jacket. If you’re a sartorialist on the hunt for entryway wall hooks, Redlich’s nod to spools of thread — made of solid wood and hand-dyed braided cotton rope — might be your thing. @heri_furniture
