Our furniture, which is beautiful, handmade art in its own right, creates a wonderful synergy with the pieces that we feature. Roland’s works compliment Thos. Moser’s style and have been extremely well received by our customers."

"I celebrate the ordinary in my paintings of Chicago's many bridges," continues Kulla. "I select certain design elements and eliminate background context in order to emphasize form. Abstracted from their surroundings the bridges take on new aspects." their surroundings the bridges take on new aspects.
