Solid Maple End Grain chopping block and stand. Mark Lewis as design director Lewis & Horning (1983-87)
This end grain chopping block was a feature within the L&H showroom display in Drury Lane.
The table set adjacent had canted corners. The chopping block was converse, and so embraced the table end with a snug fit confirming the compatibility of the two pieces of furniture.
Made in maple, a traditional wood for chopping blocks, this item, possessed of witty sharp detail, brought the integrity of the Butchers Block into the 20th Century (something that Mark Lewis managed to repeat in the concepts and features of the kitchens and other furniture he has designed).
