Any of this work could easily be integrated into a contemporary furniture manufacturer's catalog; one readily finds the confluence of ornament and Shaker-style tendencies in the collection of the Dutch company Moooi, for example.

Still, McMakin's latest pieces are not simply mash-ups, nor can they strictly be considered furniture. There's something oddly unsettling about not being able to label these as art, craft, or design. And that's a good thing.
