A semainier is French for “seven-drawer dresser,” and was originally meant to hold a weeks worth of clothing. (It was rough being royalty!) Of all my Tip-Top pieces, this is the design I have repeated the most, and is the most enjoyable to build. People are drawn to the drawers, and I like the graduated, cascading knobs.

Steven has been designing and building wooden things since childhood. From treehouse and boats to spiral staircases and human-powered Ferris wheels, his sense of beautiful design and whimsy always shines through. Focusing on studio furniture for the last 20 years, Steven’s style has become distinct, with flowing compositions of gently curved lines and shapes, and his craftsmanship and choice of woods always impresses. His work has been featured in countless books, magazines, art shows, and galleries.
