Studio Wetz Furniture at Rising Gallery

RISING Gallery has acquired new furniture pieces by Studio Wetz. The new 'Bryan Wetz Signature' series is a selection of chairs, side tables, and coffee tables.

SLAT Chair by Studio Wetz

This latest series of furniture is the first of many new designs aimed at the most discerning of buyers. The precision construction details, the solid woods (both domestic and exotic), and the premier finishes put the collection second to none. The entire collection is designed and handmade in Dallas, TX.

Bryan says, “after years of admiring and studying the furniture of Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and Gerrit Reitveld , to name a few, I set out to design a series of pieces reminiscent of the past greats”. Bryan’s continued research led him back to the designers of the past to investigate scale and proportion and how to change today’s perceptions of bigger is better. (3 Leg Chair shown to right)

Some of Bryan’s custom work has been showcased in Perspectives on Design Southwest, a coffee table book by Panache Partners. The 320-page publication features hundreds of vivid photographs of the region’s most stunning homes and the industry experts’ design inspirations, philosophies and perspectives. Books are also available for purchase at RISING.
