Anatomy Lesson

Though the Peninsula Chair would look handsome in any Palos Verdes home, the piece hails from our northern neighbor Oregon.

 

Don’t be fooled by the name. Though the Peninsula Chair would look handsome in any Palos Verdes home, the piece hails from our northern neighbor Oregon. Before he landed in Portland and opened Phloem Studio, designer Benjamin Klebba learned his trade back home in the Midwest, inspired by his father, who taught construction trades at an industrial arts center for 20 years.

Phloem, pronounced , is the vascular structure in plants that provides nutrients through photosynthesis. Benjamin similarly breathes life into his furniture, emphasizing natural materials and traditional joinery.

Co-designed with Matt Pierce, the Peninsula Chair features domestic hardwoods or ebonized ash and gorgeous leather in earth tones or black. For more, visit phloemstudio.com.
